Title your paper: “Review of [Name of Article]”

State the Author:

Summarize the article in one paragraph:

Post a screenshot of the article’s frequency table and/or graph.

Example:

Frequency Distribution -OR- Graph

Answer the following questions about your table or graph.

What type of study is used in the article (quantitative or qualitative)?

Explain how you came to that conclusion.

What type of graph or table did you choose for your lab (bar graph, histogram, stem & leaf plot, etc.)?

What characteristics make it this type (you should bring in material that you learned in the course)?

Describe the data displayed in your frequency distribution or graph (consider class size, class width, total frequency, list of frequencies, class consistency, explanatory variables, response variables, shapes of distributions, etc.)

Draw a conclusion about the data from the graph or frequency distribution in the context of the article.

How else might this data have been displayed?

Discuss the pros and cons of 2 other presentation options, such as tables or different graphical displays.

Why do you think those two other presentation options (i.e., tables or different graphs) were not used in this article?

Discussion Q2

In your own words, explain the following:

The importance of statistical analysis within the field of Education.

How statistics can be used to interpret data and why this is important for the field of Education

How statistics can be misused within the field of Education.

Please refer to the following prior to starting the assignment. Thiese, M. S., Arnold, Z. C., & Walker, S. D. (2015). The misuse and abuse of statistics in biomedical research. Biochemia Medica, 25(1), 5–11. http://doi.org/10.11613/BM.2015.001

Provide at least a 250-word post (with at least two APA style references) and comment on at least two of your peers’ post

(if your not able to use the link above, this is the link your needing to read for the information)

For the second SLP, using the data that you collected for the Module 1 SLP, please do the following:

data from SLP the number of minutes exercise for 5 days

day 1, 45 minutes

day 2, 65 minutes

day 3. 45 minutes

day 4 60 minutes

day 5 50 minutes

Calculate the mean, median, mode, variance, and standard deviation of the measurements taken in Module 1 SLP. Show your work and be sure to express each value in units.

Discuss which measure of central tendency you think most accurately describes the variable that you measured. Provide a thorough explanation.

Describe the spread/distribution of your data. Be sure to describe the variance of distribution and the concept of standard deviation as a measure of dispersion in your response.

Conduct a scholarly search on the internet to find reported health statistics on the variable that you are measuring. For example, if you measure your total daily caloric intake, American Dietetic Association.

Identify the source.

Submit your (2-3 pages) paper by the end of this module.

In a managerial report, use the methods of hypothesis testing to

• Formulate and present the rationale for a hypothesis test that Par could use to compare the driving distances of the current and new golf balls.

• Analyze the data to provide the hypothesis testing conclusion. What is the p-value for your test? What is your recommendation for Par, Inc.?

• Provide descriiptive statistical summaries of the data for each model.

• Explain what the 95% confidence interval is for the population mean driving distance of each model, and explain what the 95% confidence interval is for the difference between the means of the two populations.

• Discuss whether you see a need for larger sample sizes and more testing with the golf balls.

Step 3: Discuss

Based on your hypothesis testing conclusion, what are your recommendations for Par, Inc? Support your recommendations with findings from your managerial report.

n sections 3.1 and 3.2 of your WileyPLUS textbook, you will learn about confidence intervals. Confidence intervals are often misinterpreted and commonly confused with the probability that something is likely to happen. In this journal, you have the opportunity to explore your understanding of these concepts; you will discuss how calculating a confidence interval is similar to or different than gambling.

To complete this assignment, review the Journal Guidelines and Rubric PDF document.

This assignment will help you understand how confidence intervals provide information on how well a sample represents a population and helps to answer specific types of research questions. Read the scenario and use the information provided to answer the questions.

To complete this assignment, review the Module Four Short Paper Guidelines and Rubric PDF document.

Submit the Milestone One Worksheet Word Document. In this milestone, you will address the following:

Indicate what data set you have chosen and why. If you chose a particular data set to align with your concentration in psychology, describe in a sentence or two why you have chosen this concentration.

Describe the involved parties in the data set presented and the question you can answer by the data.

Discuss why the data set exemplifies a study that agrees with the APA’s Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct.

Discuss ethical issues that may arise when analyzing and reporting statistical data.

Describe one way in which you will ensure your reporting of results in your data analysis will align with the APA’s Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct.
