Data Interpretation Practicum Purpose of the Study Begin In this section begin by explaining the purpose your analysis. You must include two or morevariables: all variables must be interval/ratio level. Please explain what the data represent and where the data came from. If you intend to run a correlationyou should include a correlation matrix with 2 or more variables. If you intend to conduct a regression analysis you must include (a) a correlation matrix (b) an ANOVA table and (c) a coefficients table. For correlation H10: There is no significant relationship (between/among) variables X and Y (or variables X Y and Z). H1A: There is a significant relationship (between/among) variables X and Y (or variables X Y and Z). For regression(Note: ONLY DO ONE ANALYSIS: REGRESSION OR CORRELATION). However if you choose to examine correlations among 3 or more variables be sure to include a Bonferroni correction. H10: Variable X cannot be used to predict scores on Variable Y. H1A: Variable X can be used to predict scores on Variable Y. Please remove this table before submitting this assignment. H10: Null H1A: Alternative Findings Descriptive Statistics Begin In this section please (a) provide the measures of central tendency for each variable and (b) present a histogram of each variable (please correctly label the figure BELOW the figure). Do not present inferential statistics results in this section. Do notdiscuss statistical significance in this section. Onlydiscuss means and standard deviations and any other appropriate descriptive statistics in this section. You MAY present a scatterplot to illustrate the relationship between the two variables. Inferential Statistics Begin In this section please report the results of your analysis. Include all appropriate tables. Indicate whether you accept or reject the NULL hypothesis based on the p value(s). To report the results of a correlation: The results indicate (a/no) significant relationship between X and Y[dmd1] r = .XX p= .XX. Be sure to calculate r 2 and interpret the amount of variance explained. To report the results of a regression The results indicate X (can/cannot) be used to predict Y R = .XX p = .XX. Be sure to calculate R 2 and interpret the amount of variance explained.If you use more than one IV report the results from the coefficients table. NOTE: no tables are necessary for correlation. For regression present the ANOVA table and the regression coefficients table. Conclusions Begin In this section please interpret your results. What do the results mean for stakeholders? Do NOTrepeat numbers (e.g. p values. What recommendations would you give (a) for future research and (b) for stakeholders? For example if you did not find significant results you could recommend repeating the study with a larger or more representative sample. If you got significant results you can recommend repeating the study with other populations. For stakeholders how might leaders in your area use this information?
