Final Paper Topic Proposal

For the Final Paper, you will identify three to five research studies from peer-reviewed

sources that were published within the last ten years, which investigate a particular

social science problem or topic. The Final Paper will focus on critiquing the varying

Your assignment this Week is to identify the topic that you intend to focus on for your

Final Paper. You may select any social science problem or topic; however, it must be

something that has been studied using quantitative research methods. Some examples

of possible topics include:

Effectiveness of therapeutic interventions for a psychological disorder

Causes or treatment strategies for violence and aggression

Strategies for reducing prejudice

Factors impacting domestic violence

Causes and treatment of addiction

If you cannot identify quantitative research studies to critique, you will be unable to

complete the Final Paper and therefore may need to select a different topic.

Consequently, you are encouraged to search the Ashford University Library for

quantitative research studies on your chosen topic to ensure there are enough available

for use. For this assignment, include at least one quantitative research study from a

peer-reviewed source that was published within the last ten years, cited according to

APA guidelines and that supports your chosen topic.In order to identify which studies

are quantitative, skim the results section of the database you are searching. If the

results section contains a summary of statistical tests, then it would be considered

quantitative. Often the articles abstract will also make it clear that the study is

quantitative by including comments about the comparisons made in the study. Your

assignment must include your research topic and why you have decided to focus on this

particular topic for your Final Paper, the research hypothesis that you will be focusing on

for the topic you choose, as well as an introduction and conclusion. The paper should

be one to two pages in length (excluding title and reference pages) and adhere to

proper APA formatting as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

Week 1 DQ 1 Types of Data

Give an example of a research question that includes an independent and a dependent

variable. These are usually presented as, How does A affect B?, where A is your

independent variable and B is your dependent variable. Describe the independent and

dependent variables in terms of whether they are nominal (also called categorical),

ordinal, interval, or ratio variables (interval or ratio variables are also called continuous

variables). How would you study this research question?

Guided Response: Review several of your classmates posts. Provide a substantive

response to at least two of your peers that demonstrates thoughtful reflection and

analysis of the discussion in relation to their variables and research questions. Were

their independent and dependent variables identified correctly? Was the variable type

specified well? What would you ask them for further clarification?

AND CENTRAL TENDENCY

Week 1 DQ 2 Measures of Variability and Central Tendency

For this discussion, come up with 20 different data points (set of data) and enter them

into the first column in an Excel spreadsheet. The data points can be any numbers you

want as long as there are 20 of them. Your set of data should reflect one of the following

criteria:

Create a set of data for which the mean is greater than the median.

or

Create a set of data for which the mean and median are equal but are different from

the mode.

You will then use the descriptive statistics option in Excel, which is explained in Chapter

1 of your course text. You should get an output similar to Figure 1.2. This output must

contain the following values: mean, standard error, median, mode, standard deviation,

sample variance, kurtosis, skewness, range, minimum, maximum, sum, count. Begin

your discussion by reporting your results for each of these values. Based on this output,

which single value best describes this set of data and why? If you could pick three of

these values instead of only one, which three would you choose and why? It is important

to note that the answers to these questions may be different for each of you since you

are each using unique sets of data.

Guided Response: Review several of your classmates posts. Provide a substantive

response to at least two of your peers. Do you agree with their selections of the best

value based upon their data?

Give one example of health-related data (a variable) that can be represented by a pie

chart. Do the same for a bar chart and a histogram. Explain why each data example you

selected (there will be a total of three different variables) is well represented by the

corresponding graph.

DISTRIBUTION AND THE Z-SCORE

Week 2 DQ 2 Standard Normal Distribution and the z-Score

Review Chapter 3 of your course text, which introduces probability and the standard

normal distribution, and view the Z-Score video clip from the Films On Demand

database in the library. Provide a description of the meaning and use of the z-score.

Give an example that illustrates your answer.

Guided Response: Review several of your classmates posts. Respond substantively to

at least two peers. What did you like about their explanation and example? Would you

make any suggestions for improvement? Ask a question for further clarification as to the

meaning and use of the z-scores.

Article Summary

For your Final Paper you will identify three to five quantitative research studies from

peer-reviewed sources which were published within the last ten years and that

investigate a particular social science problem or topic. The Final Paper will focus on

critiquing the varying statistical approaches used in each of these studies and assess

the strengths and weaknesses of each as it relates to the study of the problem or topic

identified.

This Week, utilize the Ashford University Library to select the three to five research

studies which investigate the particular social science problem or topic you have

chosen. Write a short summary of each of the studies. To be sure that each study meets

the requirements for the Final Paper, address each question below as you summarize

the article:

What topic is being investigated in this study?

What is the research question or questions being proposed in this study?

What or who is the sample being investigated?

What is the research or experimental design being used?

What statistical tests are being used in this study?

Week 3 DQ 1 Choose the Analysis

A researcher wishes to study the effect of a new drug on blood pressure. Would you

recommend using a z-test, a t-test, or an A.N.O.V.A. for the analysis? Explain your

answer. What would your choice of test depend on? For the test you select, explain your

design and your comparison groups. Would the hypothesis be directional or nondirectional? Would the test be one-tailed or two-tailed? What would be the null and what

would be the alternative hypothesis?

Guided Response: Review several of your classmates posts. Respond to at least two of

your classmates. Do you agree or disagree with the test selected by your peer? What

suggestions would you make for change or improvement? How does the number of

groups being compared affect the statistical analysis?

Week 3 DQ 2 Repeated Measures

Review Chapter 7 of your course text, which reviews inferential statistics that analyze

experiments of repeated measures designs. For this discussion, search the Ashford

University Library and find a scholarly, peer-reviewed study on any behavioral or social

science topic that used a repeated measures design. Reference the study and

summarize the research question, the subjects, and the variable(s) of interest. What

statistical analysis was used and what were the results? Were there any statistically

significant differences? What does it mean for the results to be statistically significant?

What does this mean specifically for the differences assessed in this study? Cite your

study using APA format as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your classmates. Consider the following

questions as you respond to each classmate: What did you learn about repeated

measures from the study they selected and their analysis? Could the same research

question have been answered by an independent between-group design? Why or why

not?

OUTLINE

Final Paper Outline

This Week, your assignment is to prepare an outline for the Final Paper that is due next

Week. Review the Final Paper requirements, which are located in Week Five of your

course or in the Components of Course Evaluation section of this guide.

For each of the three to five quantitative research studies selected (from peer-reviewed

sources that were published within the last five years), the outline should include a

heading for the study and the sub-headings for Introduction, Methods, and Results. For

example:

I. First Study A. Introduction B. Methods C. Results

II. Second Study A. Introduction B. Methods C. Results, etc.

Every outline heading and subheading must include a two to three sentence description.

Additionally, for each study, indicate how it will support the overall concept of your Final

Paper and which areas of the Final Paper it will apply to. Your assignment must include

a reference page listing the three to five quantitative research studies from peerreviewed sources that were published within the last five years (these will also be used

for your Final Paper). It must be formatted according to APA guidelines as outlined in

the Ashford Writing Center.

Week 4 DQ 1 Correlation

Much has been written about the relationship between a students S.A.T. test scores and

their familys income. Generally speaking, there is a strong positive correlation between

income and S.A.T. scores. What might this tell you? Is this evidence that having a high

family income causes one to have high S.A.T. scores? Is this evidence that high S.A.T.

scores are a cause of high income? Or, does this tell you something else? If something

else, what? In the course of your response, explain why correlation alone is rarely

sufficient to demonstrate cause.

Guided Response: Review several of your classmates posts. Respond substantively to

two peers. Do you agree or disagree with their interpretation of correlation and cause?

Week 4 DQ 2 Regression

Explain the relationship between correlation and regression. What do the two

approaches have in common, and how are they different? In what types of research

might one approach be preferred over the other? Explain and justify your response. Be

sure that your discussion refers to both predictor and criterion variables as well as their

role in the regression equation.

Guided Response: Review several of your classmates posts. Respond substantively to

two peers. Do you agree with their analysis of correlation and regression? What might

strengthen their argument?

Week 5 DQ 1 Chi-Square Goodness-of-Fit Test

Describe the chi-square goodness-of-fit test. Provide a detailed explanation of what this

test measures, and how it is similar to and different from the independent t-test. How do

you know when to use one analysis over the other? Provide a real-world example.

Guided response: Review your classmates posts and respond to at least two of them.

Compare the real-world example identified by two of your classmates with the one you

selected and respond substantively. Do you agree or disagree with their analysis of

when to use one test over the other?

INDEPENDENCE

Week 5 DQ 2 Chi-Square Test of Independence

Describe the chi-square test of independence. Give an example of a question that could

be answered using this test. If you were to assemble a contingency table, what would be

included in your rows and columns? Pick a cell of this contingency table and explain

what the value in the cell would represent (you do not need to give the value, just

explain what it would represent)? What hypothesis would be tested? What do you think

Guided Response: Assess two of your classmates responses. Is the example

appropriate for a chi-square test? Why or why not? Are the variables and their

categories clear? Provide any further comments on the contingency table and the

meaning of the values in the cells.

Focus of the Final Paper

For your Final Paper you will conduct a research study critique. Utilize the instructorapproved topic that you selected in Week One of the course. Identify three to five

quantitative research studies from peer-reviewed sources which were published within

the last ten years that investigate this topic. Describe the statistical approaches (i.e.,

identify the variables and their type) used in each study and the interpretation of the

results. Finally, present other statistical approaches that could have been used and,

when appropriate, suggest alternative interpretations of the results. This process will

allow you to apply the concepts learned in the course in the interpretation of actual

scientific research.

The three to five quantitative research studies that have been conducted on your chosen

topic must:

1. Have a clearly stated research hypothesis.

2. Utilize inferential statistical tests as part of the research study.

3. Present the results of the statistical analysis.

4. Interpret the results of the statistical analysis.

5. Discuss the implications of the results of the study.

1. Introduction

2. Methods

3. Results

4. Discussion

Introduction

This section will provide a general introduction and review relevant literature to the topic

being studied. The research studies being critiqued will also be introduced in this

section. In the Introduction, the research hypothesis associated with each study should

also be clearly defined.

Methods

In this section, the research method and statistical approaches for each of the studies

being critiqued will be presented. This section should include a discussion of all

statistical tests conducted and other relevant information, such as the

sample size, and any assumptions noted on the part of the researcher. In this section,

the student should describe of all of these factors, and suggest alternatives when they

are appropriate.

Results

In this section, the results of the statistical tests performed in each of these studies

should be presented and critiqued. It is appropriate in this section, to discuss limitations

or to critique the interpretation of the results provided in each study.

Discussion

This section will compare the efficacy of the research studies that are presented on the

topic chosen by the student. The strengths and weaknesses of each study should be

mentioned in this section. Based on these studies, suggest future research directions.

Additional forms of statistical analysis should be included as part of the suggested future

research.
