Assignment includes
thoroughly documented elements as provided in the assignment requirements.
Including but, not limited to, a clear understanding and interpretation of
the table results, identification of notable patterns, trends, relationships,
associations, as well the use of academic sources and a summary of the
results wherein a clear understanding is evident. Overall the work reflects
organized thought, dialectic reflection, and higher-order thinking.

Assignment does not
thoroughly document elements as provided in the assignment requirements.
Particular parts including but not limited to, a clear understanding and
interpretation of the table results, identification of notable patterns,
trends, relationships, associations, as well the use of academic sources and
a summary of the results are not well done or do not provide a clear
understanding. The analysis is not well-done, but does contain some
indication of organized thought and higher-order thinking indicative of
doctoral quality writing.

cohesive, logical style. Moreover, the document is well organized. The format
is easy to follow, flows smoothly from one idea to another, and logically
conveys the key ideas. The style remains consistent.

Data Interpretation Practicum
Purpose of the Study
Begin

In this
section, begin by explaining the purpose your analysis. You must include two or
morevariables: all
variables must be interval/ratio level. Please explain what the
data represent and where the data came from. If you intend to run a correlation,you should include a correlation matrix
with 2 or more variables.
If you intend to conduct a regression analysis, you must include (a) a correlation matrix, (b) an ANOVA table, and (c) a
coefficients table.
For correlation,
H10:
There is no significant relationship (between/among) variables X and Y (or
variables X, Y, and Z).
H1A:
There is a significant relationship (between/among) variables X and Y (or
variables X, Y, and Z).
For regression,(Note: ONLY DO ONE ANALYSIS: REGRESSION OR
CORRELATION).
However, if you
choose to examine correlations among 3 or more variables, be sure to include
a Bonferroni correction.
H10:
Variable X cannot be used to predict scores on Variable Y.
H1A:
Variable X can be used to predict scores on Variable Y.
Please remove this table before submitting this assignment.

H10: Null
H1A: Alternative
Findings
Descriptive
Statistics
Begin

In this section, please (a) provide the measures of
central tendency for each variable and (b) present a histogram of each
variable (please correctly label the figure BELOW the figure).

Do not present inferential statistics results in this section. Do notdiscuss statistical significance in this
section. Onlydiscuss means and standard deviations, and any other
appropriate descriptive statistics in this section. You MAY present a
scatterplot to illustrate the relationship between the two variables.

Inferential
Statistics
Begin

In this section, please report the results of your
analysis. Include all appropriate tables. Indicate whether you accept or
reject the NULL hypothesis based on the p value(s). To report the
results of a correlation: The results indicate (a/no) significant
relationship between X and Y.docx#_msocom_1″>[dmd1], r
= .XX, p= .XX. Be sure to calculate r2 and interpret
the amount of variance explained. To report the results of a regression, The
results indicate X (can/cannot) be used to predict Y, R = .XX, p
= .XX. Be sure to calculate R2 and interpret the amount of
variance explained.If you use more than one IV, report the results from the
coefficients table. NOTE: no tables
are necessary for correlation. For
regression, present the ANOVA table and the regression coefficients table.

Conclusions
Begin

In this section, please interpret your results. What
do the results mean for stakeholders? Do NOTrepeat numbers (e.g., p
values.
What recommendations would you give (a) for future research and (b) for
stakeholders? For example, if you did not find significant results, you could
recommend repeating the study with a larger or more representative sample. If
you got significant results, you can recommend repeating the study with other
populations. For stakeholders, how might leaders in your area use this
information?
