To complete the final project, follow the steps outlined below. You should:
NOT ask the same questions found in the written assignments.
NOT use the same variables in both questions/tests
INCLUDE one question/test that incorporates one categorical variable and one continuous variable
INCLUDE one question/test that incorporates either two categorical or two continuous variables
Note: You may convert/regroup a continuous variable into a categorical variable.
Devise two research questions based on the variables in the Student Data Table.
Identify the variables to be utilized. One should be categorical (which may be created from a continuous variable, i.e., variable months enrolled at TESU; Categories: less than one year and one or more years) and two should be continuous variables.
Use descriptive statistics to describe the variables both numerically and graphically.
Devise hypotheses for both research questions.
Identify the appropriate statistical tests using alpha=0.05.
Perform the statistical tests.
Write up the results.
Variables in the dataset:
TESU school in which you are enrolled
Arts and Sciences
Applied Science and Technology
Business and Management
Months enrolled at TESU
Number from 0 to 48 (if over 48, enter 49)
Average distance to your place of work (in whole miles)
Height (in whole inches)
Foot size (in whole inches)
Hand size (measured from base of palm to longest finger; in whole inches)
Typical amount of sleep per night (in minutes)
Typical amount of time doing homework per day for classes at TESU (in minutes)
Your paper should be a minimum of 5 pages (1250 words). A grading rubric can be found in the Evaluation Rubrics folder in Moodle
