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.

§ 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.
