Mini Research Proposal
This written assignment is based on the work conducted in the “Z, T, or Chi-Square Test Study” discussion forum from last week. Based on this initial work, feedback received, and additional research, you should submit a mini research proposal that calls for the use of a z test, t test, or Chi-Square test.
Please include the following in the research proposal:
· Introduction (1-2 paragraphs)
o Present the research question of interest.
o Explain how the chosen statistical test applies to this research question.
o Provide the statistical notation and written explanations for the null and alternative hypotheses.
o Explain the types of errors that can occur.
o Participants (1 paragraph)
§ List how many participants will be selected.
§ Identify who will be the participants and their major demographic characteristics (e.g., sex, age, etc.).

§ Identify the variables in the study.
§ Describe each variable’s scale of measurement (nominal, ordinal, interval, or ratio) and characteristics (i.e., discrete vs. continuous, qualitative vs. categorical, etc.).
§ Provide an operational definition for each variable, explaining how the variables will be measured.
· Results (1-2 paragraphs)
o Describe the statistical test that will be conducted. Be sure to include why the test was chosen and why it is appropriate for this study.
o Identify the information that will be obtained from the results of this test and what will be needed to draw conclusions regarding the hypotheses.
· Discussion (1 paragraph)
o Identify any expected biases, assumptions, or faults with the proposed study and the use of the identified statistical test.
o Explain what conclusions can and cannot be made for this study, and using this statistical test.
o Describe the practical significance or importance of the results.
The paper should be APA formatted as a research proposal, and approximately 1000 to 1350 words of content. Include a title page, and a reference page that includes any resources utilized.
