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.

§ 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.
