# How can I create this report?

*label*Statistics

*timer*Asked: Nov 11th, 2015

**Question description**

In this case, 40 individuals visited the hospital looking for information and education regarding their diabetes.

Since diabetes relates to the body’s ability to use glucose, their glucose level was measured. These patience

took a knowledge test about diabetes before and after being given some educational materials. Satisfaction

with their overall visit was also measured through a survey. The data appear below for your reference. The

Excel spreadsheet with these data can be found in Doc Sharing and should be opened in Minitab to complete

the analyses required in each part of this project.

The variables are

1. Hospital stay – number of days in hospital

Hospital satisfaction – level of satisfaction with hospital services during stay (very highly satisfied, highly

satisfied, somewhat dissatisfied, and very dissatisfied)

2.

3. Diabetes Pretest – score on diabetes knowledge test (must score 95 or higher to leave)

Diabetes Posttest – score on diabetes knowledge test after receiving educational material created for

this study

4.

5. Glucose – blood glucose in mg/dL.

The data are available in Doc Sharing Course Project Data Set as an Excel file. You are to copy and paste

the data set into a Minitab Worksheet.

Open the file MATH533_Course_Project_Data_HOSPITAL.xlsx from Doc Sharing.

Summarize the data for each of the five variables. For each variable, find the mean, median, variance,

and standard deviation. Use Minitab as appropriate, and explain what the results mean. These

calculations may not be possible for each variable. If you cannot calculate any or all of these for a

specific variable, please note that and state why.

Analyze the connections or relationships between two variables. There are ten pairings possible here

(Hospital stay and hospital satisfaction, hospital stay and diabetes pretest, hospital stay and diabetes

posttest, hospital stay and glucose, hospital satisfaction and diabetes pretest, hospital satisfaction and

diabetes posttest, hospital satisfaction and glucose, diabetes pretest and diabetes posttest, diabetes

pretest and glucose, and diabetes posttest and glucose ). Choose two of these pairings and find the

correlation coefficient and show the scatter plot. Explain what you see. Some variables show clear

relationships, while others do not.

Prepare your report in Microsoft Word (or some other word processing package), integrating your

graphs and tables with text explanations and interpretations. Be sure that you have graphical and

numerical back up for your explanations and interpretations. Be selective in what you include in the

report. You should not generate a 20 page report on every variable and every possible relationship.

Rather what you should do is to highlight what you see for the individual and two or three sentences of

interpretation. For the two pairings you selected, identify and report your results using graphical and

numerical summary (as appropriate), with interpretations.

All DeVry University policies are in effect, including the plagiarism policy.

Project Part A report is due by the end of Week 2.

Project Part A is worth 100 total points. See grading rubric below.

Submission: The report from part 4 including all relevant graphs and numerical analysis along with

interpretations.

A quality paper will meet or exceed all of the

above requirements.

Your manager has speculated the following:

a. the average (mean) level of glucose is less than 130

b. the true population proportion of number somewhat satisfied with their hospital stay is greater than 28%,

c. the average (mean) score on the diabetes pretest is greater than 52.

the average (mean) score on the diabetes posttest ONLY among those that are "somewhat satisfied" is

less than 75.

Using the sample data, perform the hypothesis test for each of the above situations in order to

see if there is evidence to support your manager’s belief in each case a.-d. In each case use the

Seven Elements of a Test of Hypothesis, in Section 6.2 of your textbook with α = .05, and explain

your conclusion in simple terms. Also be sure to compute the p-value and interpret.

1.

Follow this up with computing 95% confidence intervals for Glucose and Diabetes Posttest, and

again interpreting these intervals.

2.

Write a report to your manager about the results, distilling down the results in a way that would be

understandable to someone who does not know statistics. Clear explanations and interpretations

are critical.

3.

Project Part B report is due by the end of Week 6.

Project Part B is worth 100 total points. See grading rubric below.

Submission: The report from part 3 + all of the relevant work done in the hypothesis testing (including

Minitab) in 1, and the confidence intervals (Minitab) in 2 as an appendix.

Format for report:

A. Summary Report (about 1 paragraph on each of the speculations a.-d.)

Appendix with all of the steps in hypothesis testing (the format of the Seven Elements of a Test of

Hypothesis, in Section 6.2 of your textbook) for each speculation a.-d. as well as the confidence

intervals, and including all Minitab output
