Question description

Using the research question and two variables your learning team developed for the Week 2 Business Research Project Part 1 assignment, create a no more than 350-word inferential statistics (hypothesis test). Include:

(a) The research question

(b) Mock data for the independent and dependent variables

Determine the appropriate statistical tool to test the hypothesis based on the research question.

Conduct a hypothesis test with a 95% confidence level, using the statistical tool.

Interpret the results and provide your findings.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.

Submit both the spreadsheet and the paper.Click the Assignment Files tab to submit your assignment.

The independent variable is the number of stores that offer front of store recycling. The dependent variable is the number of cups being recycled when the front-of-store recycling project is offered as opposed to coffee houses that do not offer the front of the store recycling project. 71% of stores were able to recycle or compost hot cups (Starbucks, 2014). DOTA added front-of-store recycling in more than 1,200 locations and continues to see a strong 90% acceptance rate of cold cups (Starbucks, 2014). Data suggest a decline in overall acceptance of hot cups due to limitations of recycling technology in several markets (Starbucks, 2014).

Based on challenges faced by DOTA Coffeehouse, and the variables identified, this study is focused on determining, whether the presence of recycling units in front of stores affects ,the number of cups recycled.  Therefore, Team A’s research seeks to answer the question, “Is there a relationship between the number of cups recycled and the presence of recycling units in front of DOTA stores?”

Hypothesis 1:  There is an increase in cups being recycled when front of store recycling is provided compared to when no front of store recycling is provided. Null Hypothesis 1: There is no difference in the number of cups being recycled as a result of store front or no store front recycling.
