Project #57824 - statistics/Ethical issues in Research()

My Budget for this is $125-135

Hi I posted this project before, but it was not correct; I need someone with experience in statistics and that can hand right the problems and show all work. I have received feedback from my instructor and what is needed; I will also provide the formulas that must be used. 

 

 

Ethical issues in Research()

 

Read about both the Humphrey and Milgram study. I have included some links, however you can learn about these studies however you wish.

Then redesign either the Humphrey or Milgram study to accomplish the same research purpose but to avoid the ethical issues.

Re-design

 

  1. Please describe your re-design (include which study)
  2. What did you change and why?
  3. Is your study equally Valid to the Original Study? Explain.

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)

    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.)

Group1____________________________________________________________________

Group 2____________________________________________________________________

Group 3____________________________________________________________________

This is the feedback

 

Please write out the stats by hand...using the formulas used in this class. I cannot accept this exam until it is completed as assigned. I have given you feedback on every question. Here is the current feedback but understand I cannot give you a grade until it meets the requirements

 

`1. 5 points

 

 2. 0/13 Need to have an informed consent, need a ten item survey....here is the question:

3.2/4 points Missing examples of ordinal and interval data

 

4. 2/22

 

 a.nothing about satisfaction rating in problem

 

b. give specific example

 

 c. nothing about satisfaction level.....need to define dv

 

d.need to define iv

 

e.??? nothing about satisfaction in the problem

 

f.T test does not compare two terms.....see lectures..

 

g. Z test has nothing to do with a mean.....see lectures...

 

h. explain.001 See lectures, your definition does not make sense

 

i.need example of snowball sampling for this problem

 

j. this application is not about a mental exam...

 

 k Why snowball for 20 seniors(not necessarily men)

 

5. I do not understand at all what you did here. Please go back and read the instructions and answer each question

 

a. I asked for the REsearch question.For Design a Solomon 4 group experiment to show the effect of participating in a Silver Sneakers Program for 6 months on mobility---i did not ask for HYPoTHESIS

 

b.b. 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.) ---this is missing...unsure what 2.2. and 2.3 are all about.... Need to use the DATA from the data sheet And this question was about a Solomon 4 group—

 

3.1???WHAT...this is not from this exam??

 You are missing your answers to these questions

c. Describe your intervention or treatment:

d. 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.

 f..How would you analyze your data? What statistics would you use and why?

 

6.SEE the exam... "ALL questions from here to end of exam must be written out by hand. Always show full formula before solving and then solve step by step. Please SHOW ALL OF YOUR WORK!!

 

 6. Measures of Central Tendency.

a. Please name, define and find the measures of central tendency for number of Silver Sneaker sessions for women. (6 POINTS) SHOW ALL WORK. Include Solving the equation step by step if there is an equation you are also missing the definitions, median is incorrect....

 7. need to show all work,

8. incorrect answer for % that falls between the mean and -1sd, you gave percent between -1 and +1 sd Show how you found % for this data between -1sd and mean...

9. Remember we only learned T test not t test. You need to show all of your work NO EXCEL!

 

 

10 again, use or class material, we did not study z-test We only studied Z test.....you understand the difference...a lower case letter compares an individual score whereas the capital Z compares groups...

 

 

 

These are the formuals that must be used

 

It is important to know how to calculate the Standard Deviation, as it is used in other calculations.

 

Formula:
The formula for standard deviation is:

 

where:

S= Standard Deviation

 = Sum of

X = individual score

M = mean or 

 

 

 

ind the Critical score, you need to determine the Degrees of Freedom. Degrees of freedom adjusts for sample size differences. For the T-test, degrees of freedom is:

 

dF= n1 + n2 - 2

 

n is the sample size. The numbers next to each n indicates either sample 1 and sample 2.

 

Formula:
The formula for T-test is:

Z-test

 

Last week we learned about the T-test, which compared the means of two groups. Now we will learn about the Z-test, which compares proportions or percents of each group. Here is the z-test formula:

 

 

 

  • P1 = Proportion of group one
  • P2 = Proportion of group 2
  • p = proportion of group 1 + proportion of group 2
  • q = 1 - p
