Mini Research Proposal

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)
    • Present the research question of interest.
    • Explain how the chosen statistical test applies to this research question.
    • Provide the statistical notation and written explanations for the null and alternative hypotheses.
    • Explain the types of errors that can occur.
  • Methods
    • 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.).
      • Explain how participants will be selected for the study.
    • Procedures (1-2 paragraphs)
      • 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)
    • 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.
    • 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)
    • Identify any expected biases, assumptions, or faults with the proposed study and the use of the identified statistical test.
    • Explain what conclusions can and cannot be made for this study, and using this statistical test.
    • 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. Students should submit their paper by Day 7.
