Project #56620 - Research/ statistics

  1. Ethical issues in Research( 5 points)
  2. Read about both the Humphrey and Milgram study.  I have included some links, however you can learn about these studies however you wish.
  3. Then redesign either the Humphrey or Milgram study to accomplish the same research purpose but to avoid the ethical issues.

  10. Please describe your re-design (include which study)

  11.  What did you change and why? 

  12. Is your study equally Valid to the Original Study?  Explain.

     

 

  1. Design a survey to give at a local Senior Center to demonstrate the need for a Silver Sneakers program in your county. (13 points) Info on Silver Sneakers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80dcEsxXUmA

     

    Include:

    a. Informed Consent (separate page—be sure to include the basic elements discussed in class lecture and sample)

    b. Title

    c. Instructions (always labeled)

    d. Relevant Demographics

    e. Relevant questions to assess the need for Silver Sneakers in your community

    f. a contingency question

    g. one matrix question with four sections.(Remember a theme)

     

     Minimum number of questions: 10. 

     

    3. Levels of Measurement. Name and define the different levels of measurement.  Then for each level of measurement give one example from the spreadsheet data provided.(4 POINTS)

 

4. Class material and concepts.

 

For each term

 

a. Define the term

 

b. Apply to the following research scenario. 

 

 

 

SCENARIO: You are conducting research at a local Nursing home with 20 seniors over a period of 6 months.  You are assessing the change in the seniors’ depression level based on their participation in a Person Centered care program.  (22 points)

 

SAMPLE of PERSON CENTERED CARE:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GRKZk66MKxk

 

 

 

 

 

    1. What is a Mean and what data would you use it for in this study?

       

    2. What is Validity?  And how would you ensure this study was Valid?

       

    3. What is the Dependent variable?

       

    4. What is the Independent variable?

       

    5. What is a Standard Deviation and how might you use it in this study.

       

    6. What does a T test do?  And what would you use it for in this study?

       

    7. What does a Z test do?  And how might you use it in this study?

       

    8. What is a .001 level of Significance? 

 

 

 

    1. What is a snowball sampling method?  How would you use it in this study?

 

 

 

    1. What is Reliability?  And how would you ensure it in this study?

 

 

 

    1. What type of Sampling method would you suggest for 20 seniors.  And Why?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. Design a Solomon 4 group experiment to show the effect of participating in a Silver Sneakers Program for 6 months on mobility. (15 points)

 

 

 

     a. Identify your research question (Hint: take it from the assignment above)

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Group Selection:

    Use the Participants from the data sheet. You must use all participants(12!)

    For all groups, match for type of living arrangement and use a ratio selection for gender. Identify specific participants by name, gender and type of living arrangement. You must use and label all participants. (For Example: Ellen,(f),apartment.)

     

    Some hints: To use a ratio selection for gender find the ratio of men-women for the entire group(12) and then have the same ratio in each group (so if  you had 100 men and 20 women in a study-the ratio would be 100/20, which is reduced to 10/2 which is reduced to 5/1-so for each group you would have 5 men to 1 woman)

     

    To match for type of living arrangement. All groups need to look the same. (For example if you had 40 participants living at home, each group would have 10 participants living at home—equally splitting the entire group among the 4 groups.)

  1. Identify your IV:______________________ and DV:___________________________

     

     

    e. Outline and describe your process for conducting this Solomon 4 group experiment. Be sure to draw a chart. Explain the process from participant selection through data analysis.
