Behavior and Gender at Work Researchers wanted to determine whether individuals considered certain employee work behaviors to be required or optional. For each work behavior cited, participants rated the behavior on a scale from 1 (definitely required) to 7 (completely optional). There were a total of 41 individuals who rated the behavior, with 20 individuals rating a female employee and 21 individuals rating a male employee. The following table shows the work behavior, mean, and standard deviation for female and male employees. For example, of the 20 ratings on the female employee, the mean score for resolving conflict between coworkers was 2.50, while the mean of the 21 ratings on male employees for this behavior was 3.52. Although the sample size is small, assume the distribution of the sample mean is approximately normal for all four work behavior ratings. Conduct the appropriate test for all four work behaviors to determine if there is a difference in ratings for female versus male employees. Write a report that presents your conclusions.
