This part of the assignment is not exactly the same as writing a proper paper. It will have a lot of things in common with paper writing, but the format is a little less restrictive. In short, this is not going to be written to the specifics of a proper research paper. Instead, what you will be doing is explaining the data. So, let me explain what I will be looking for and what you will be graded on. (The bullet points here are to cover the different things that you will be graded on. This is still a paper of sorts, so DO NOT submit a bunch of bullet points. Think of your research like a story. Tell me the tale of what you found and what it means.)
1. Did you explain you research topic? What was it that you were looking into, and why you felt that it was important. This is not a one or 2 sentence answer. You need to be clear and thorough in your response.
o Not acceptable: I was looking into whether course format impacts gpa, because this semester was hard and I wanted to see if others felt that way.
o Acceptable: Covid has highlighted a number of challenges facing students. As a result, more students are being forced into taking courses in a format other than they might normally take. Therefore, I wanted to look into how course format might impact gpa. Is it something that affects everyone equally, or are there other factors that contribute to how course format might impact grades?
2. What data did you collect? Here, you will be explaining all of your findings. You will describe what you did and what you found. You need to say what the data means. Tell the reader how to interpret the data. This is more than just presenting the numbers. They can see the numbers in your output logs. Describe how and why the data is important. It is important to note that the main thing here is the EXPLANATION.
o Not Acceptable: 72% of those surveyed were women.
o Not Acceptable: I gave a survey and they answered questions.
o Acceptable: Of the grades reported, the grades were higher on average for face-to-face classes (3.2 for f2f; 2.8 of online). This suggests that people were having a more difficult time with online class format. However, the data remains a little unclear because those surveyed also rated the number of challenges faced this semester to be higher than those in other semesters (4.2 for this semester; 2.1 for last Fall). There were also differences that reported among groups. The youngest adults (18-19) reported much higher grades in online classes (3.1) than young adults (23-25) reported (2.9) and older adults (28-32) reported (2.6). This implies that the youngest adults might be having an easier time in online classes because of their familiarity with technology. This was reinforced by…
THE DATA IS ON THE ATTACHED EXCEL FILE!!!
3. How does your data relate to your research question? The above portion is telling us what the data means, but you also need to make sure that you are making it clear how this informs your research topic. How is your data revealing interesting details of the topic.
4. Is the interpretation of your data valid? For this, I am looking to see if the claims that you are making about your data are valid given the data. If you asked people if they drink milk, then claim everyone likes milk more than orange juice, you will fail this part. You can’t claim something that isn’t measured. So, make sure that your descriptions of your data are accurate.
5. Is the data valid? Here, I am looking to see if your method of measuring the data captures what you need to. That is, does the data actually do the work that you are trying to get it to do. This is different from the part above. Your data may be valid, but your interpretation may be wrong.
6. Did you use the appropriate statistics? When reviewing the logs, I will be looking to see if you put the data in the correct format. Did you use a median in place of a mean? Are you reporting the proper percentages? Etc. ( I WILL COMPLETE THIS PORTION)
There are other things that I will be looking for, but these are the major sources of points. This project is your chance to show many of the things that you learned this semester. The SPSS logs are your record of the work, and the paper you write here is you demonstrating what stats means beyond just the numbers. Remember, descriptive stats is about organizing and describing your data. That is precisely what this assignment is all about.
What will you be submitting:
· 2+ page paper describing all of your results.
· SPSS log with all of the analyses that you ran on your data (Already completed this bullet. I do NOT need this portion. I will attach the data collected for you in a separate file)
This project submission is open to the entire class. You will see what everyone has posted, so you can see some of the great studies that are around. Please keep this in mind as you write your “paper.” You are writing this not just for me, but for everyone in the class, so you need to explain your research as if you were talking to someone that had no idea what you were doing or why. And, you need to be thorough in your descriptions so that you make them understand why you analyzed it the way you did, why the data means what you claim it does, etc. Imagine that you are talking to a random stranger. Make sure you put effort into the detail. Understand that a lot of time, we know what we mean (in our head), but we don’t always put that into writing. For this, it needs to be in writing. You are being graded on what you write. Not what you data could say. Not what you meant to say. It needs to be very clear. If it isn’t clear and direct in your paper, then it isn’t there. So please take your time to explain things thoroughly.
