Self-designed Fictitious Study



Undertake an analysis based on a self-designed fictitious study that utilizes statistical methodologies. You will first develop a fictitious problem to examine – it can be anything. For example, maybe you want to look at whether scores on a standardized college placement test (like the SAT) are related to the level of income a person makes 10 years after college; Or, whether those who participate in a Leadership Training program rated as better managers compared to those who do not; Or, whether ones political affiliation is related to gender. These are just a few examples; be creative and think about what piques your interest. You might also address how organizational culture affect the leadership in an organization. Your analysis report should include the following components: 1 Describe your research study. 2 State a hypothesis. 3 List and explain the variables you would collect in this study. There must be a minimum of three variables and two must meet the assumptions for a correlational analysis. 4 Create a fictitious data set that you will analyze. The data should have a minimum of 30 cases, but not more than 50 cases. 5 Conduct a desсrіptive data analysis that includes the following: a a measure of central tendency b a measure of dispersion c at least one graph 6 Briefly interpret the desсrіptive data analysis. 7 Conduct the appropriate statistical test that will answer your hypothesis. It must be a statistical test covered in this course such as regression analysis, single t-test, independent t-test, cross-tabulations, Chi-square, or One-Way ANOVA. Explain your justification for using the test based on the type of data and the level of measurement that the data lends to for the statistical analysis. 8 Report and interpret your findings.
