Practical Application Of Statistical Analysis

Practical Application of Statistical Analysis

Refer to the u09a1 Articles document, listed in Resources. In each article, locate the Results section and find the appropriate analyses (Chi-square, t-tests, one-way ANOVA, correlation, or linear regression).

  • Article 1 – Interpreting Chi-square and t-tests.
  • Article 2 – One-way ANOVA and t-test.
  • Article 3 – Correlation and linear regression.

Instructions for the Assignment

Read the results and draw your own conclusions, using the checklist questions to help frame your conclusion:

  • What was the hypothesis (or hypotheses)?
  • What variables were used?
  • What statistics were used?
  • What were the results of the statistics?
  • Was the hypothesis confirmed, or did the researchers fail to reject the null hypothesis?
  • How do you interpret the results?

In your own words, write a one-paragraph interpretation of these results to help a team to decide if these results can be used in a recommendation to change practice for an organization.

  • You must cite the page number and the specific data from each article, using current APA style and format. For example:
    • When you cite a t-test, include group means, t value, degrees of freedom, p value. Note: You will need to include the same kinds of descriptions for each different type of data (Chi-square, one-way ANOVA, correlation, or linear regression).

Additional Requirements

  • Create a document that is clearly written and generally free of grammatical errors.
