What does the research say about this issue? Select one of the articles from
your search. Identify the descriptive statistics. Is anything missing? To what
extent are minorities included in the study? (Is that demographic information
available?) How does the descriptive data help you understand the research?
Class, in this question,
you are asked to examine the descriptive statistics in an article related to
your research question. This correlates to CO 6 which is to utilize the
principles of evidence-based practice to propose strategies that can address
clinical, educational or administrative issues.
What does knowing these
descriptive statistics do to help you understand the research? What challenges,
particularly ethical challenges, do you think the researchers might have had
when gathering the data?
Describe the inferential tests that were used in the article that
you used in the first discussion (in other words, t-tests and chi-squares).
Given the p-values related to the tests, how do you interpret the results? Are
statistically significant findings also clinically significant? What are the
recommendations based on this paper? Share some alternate explanations
(mediating or intervening variables) for the results of the study.
Class, In addition to
the descriptive statistics in the article you used in TD 1, what are the
inferential statistics (chi-square, t-tests, multiple regression, etc.) that
are reported. If you are unclear about what you are looking for, please
e-mail me through the course e-mail above. How do these statistics answer
the research question? Can you think of alternate explanations (mediating
variables that haven't been measured) for the results of the study?
