I first ran a Chi Square test on 2 categorical variables, ethnicity and a specific maternal at a home involvement strategy: mom talked to the student about grade. However, I found that I could not reject the null hypothesis conclude that the 2 categorical variables were related as the p-value was equal to 0.2935.
Instead, I decided to compare 2 categorical variable related to my overall question: maternal expectations and maternal engagement in an at home involvement strategy, again talking about grades. With a p-value of <.0001, I was able to reject the null and conclude that the 2 variables are related.
This suggests that there is a meaningful difference in maternal engagement in this at home involvement strategy based on mom's college expectations.
