Evaluating Recent Research
Go to the online library and find a recent (no older than 3 years) article reporting the results of a nursing or health research study in which a t-test analysis or its non-parametric analog is used.
Post the reference in APA format at the top of your response and then provide a BRIEF 1 paragraph summary of the study.
Identify the null hypothesis and research/alternative hypotheses (you will need to write the null in your own words as this is not provided in most research reports).
Next, you will list:
The Dependent Variable (DV) and the level of measurement of the DV.
The Independent Variable (IV) and the level of measurement of the IV.
The type of data required and whether assumptions of the test were met.
Be sure to note which type of test is used in the study and discuss its appropriateness.
