Building on your case assignment from module 4, you will complete
your signature assignment. Specifically, you will prepare a 8 to 10
page paper in which you address the following:
1. Continuing with the five research articles that you found your
case assignment, describe the levels of measurement used in
each of the articles. Follow this format:
1. For article # 1, describe the variables under
consideration (both dependent and independent)2. Discuss the level of measurement of each variablenominal, ordinal, interval, or ratio.
2. For each of the five research articles you used in your case
assignment, discuss the test statistics that were used. State
whether or not they were parametric, or nonparametric tests.
3. Critique the test statistics used in each of the research articles.
Based on the level of measurements of the dependent and
independent variables, where the appropriate statistics used?

additionally, these sites may be useful:
4. Describe whether or not the findings in each of the research
articles you selected for this project are able to be generalized
to the current issue you have selected in your current, or
1 / 2
5. Describe whether or not you found the reporting of the
research findings useful. Tell me what the authors could have
done to make the reported research more “user friendly” to the
person reading their article.
Feedback from my last assignment.
|Feedback:||You did well on this except for your interpretation of type 1 and type 2 error. The p-value helps prevent type 1 but Beta helps to prevent type 2 error.
There are different factors including sample size that is important in preventing a type 2 error. It is not as simple as accepting or rejecting the null but putting into place the methods and statistical approach to avoid both error types. Plus you needed more detail on the data.
