FORMAT: All projects are to be prepared and labeled in the following format:
Problem Statement: State what question you will be answering and statistical concepts you will be using. Any concept we have discussed throughout this course may be used in your analysis. Try to be creative, maybe using something new that you have learned!!!
Background: Discuss the background behind your choice, supported by research.
Survey Questions: State what questions (minimum of 5 questions—at least 3 questions must have a numerical answer—not yes/no) you will use on a survey. Create a survey that applies to you topic and then ask 20 people to respond (co-workers, classmates, friends, family, etc) to your survey questions.
Analysis of Statement: Discuss/demonstrate how you will use the concept(s) to analyze. You must find the mean and standard deviation, as well as 2 other statistical values studied in this course for each of 3 of the questions.
e. IMPLEMENTATION: Determine how you will implement your decision(s). What should you do to make sure your decision(s) are successful? Often, there is no absolutely right or wrong solution to problems. You will often be asked to make a decision with only partial or limited information. Make your decision and then be prepared to defend with logic and facts, not bias or emotions. This will show not only your instructor, but potential employers your problem solving abilities.
Paper criteria: a minimum of 10-FULL pages, APA style and at least 3 references. Statistical Tables and Graphs are essential to this project.
