BSHS 382 Week 3 Learning Team Assignment Research Proposal

The Research Proposal must be a 1,050- to 1,400-word proposal formatted according to APA guidelines. You must use at least three references for this assignment. The Learning Team must identify a problem worthy of research and develop an outline of the process required to research it. No actual experiments must be conducted.

The Research Proposal must contain the following sections:

Introduction

Write a 100- to 200-word introduction for your research proposal. This must explain your research problem and your working hypothesis.

Refer to Appendix A of Beginning Behavioral Research for guidance on creating an introduction.

Elements of the Study

Write a 175- to 350-word outline of the elements of your research study.
Refer to Appendix A of Beginning Behavioral Research for an overview and examples of a research report and poster project.
The Elements of the Study section is similar to the Abstract and outlines the steps of the study, not sections of the paper.

Ethical Considerations

Write a 175- to 350-word summary identifying ethical considerations you must have in designing your research project.

Refer to Ch. 3 of Beginning Behavioral Research and incorporate at least one scholarly source in your discussion of ethical considerations specific to your research proposal.

Survey Design

Write a 350- to 525-word summary of the survey design you chose and how you obtained a representative sample for the proposed research.

Include the appropriate measures of reliability and validity.

Explain the rationale for how you propose to design and conduct the research while minimizing bias.

Refer to Ch. 9 of Beginning Behavioral Research for details on survey design and subject recruitment.

Conclusion

Write a 75- to 150-word conclusion summarizing your research proposal.

BSHS 382 Week 5 Learning Team Assignment Statistics and Hypothesis Testing Presentation

Prepare a 10- to 15-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation on statistics and hypothesis testing with speaker notes/

As a Learning Team, use the data set your team selected in week four to develop your presentation.

Refer to this course’s reading material and at least two scholarly sources from the University Library. Incorporate the following elements into your presentation:

Introduction

Introduce the Learning Team members and the data set.
Briefly explain how the data was gathered and identify the study population.

Descriptive Statistics

Define descriptive statistics and list the various descriptive measures.
Explain how descriptive statistical analysis increases understanding of the data.
Include an original graph created with StatCrunch that uses at least one descriptive statistical measure to illustrate the data set.

Inferential Statistics

Define statistical inference and include and explain at least one original inferential statistical calculation.
Use StatCrunch to check the calculation and show the steps in your presentation.
Explain how inferential statistical analysis increases understanding of the data.

BSHS 382 Week 5 Individual Assignment Human Services Research Article Discussion

Locate and read a human services research article from a scholarly journal in the University Library that includes a statistical analysis. The article must be 10 to 30 pages long and be on a topic that interests you. Here is a recommended search strategy:

Log in to the University Library, type in a search term that interests you.

Check the box for Scholarly (Peer-reviewed).

Search for a term/subject that interests you, plus the word(s) and statistics. For example, search social work and statistics or peer counseling and statistics.

Narrow your search results by choosing a subject area from the Subject menu on the left side of your results. Recommended subject areas include descriptive statistics, inferential statistics, surveys, questionnaires, and the various statistical measures that have been covered in the course.

After reading the article, assess its effectiveness based on this week’s reading material, APA guidelines, and your readings throughout the course in Beginning Behavioral Research.

Assess in 100 to 150 words the presentation of the material. Is the content formatted clearly, and is it stylistically sound? Does it adhere to APA guidelines for expressing ideas and reducing bias in language? Please state the name of the article in the introduction.

Discuss in 250 to 400 words the statistical analyses within the article. Does the article incorporate graphs or tables that facilitate understanding? Are the statistical analyses appropriate for the subject? Are they conducted correctly? Do they support the conclusions reached by the author or authors? Are there additional statistical analyses you may perform on this data to gain further knowledge? Are the statistics misleading or biased?

Format your paper per APA. Three sources are not required for this assignment, but you should reference any materials used to prepare your paper.
