- Assignments from the E-Text

Prepare answers to the following assignments from the e-text, *Applied Statistics in Business and Economics*, by Doane and Seward:

- Hypothesis Identification Article Analysis

Use the UOP Online Library or the Electronic Reading Reserve (ERR) to locate a peer-reviewed article that reports original research and pertains to a specific, stated hypothesis that was used to validate a research study. Use "major databases (eg - ProQuest)" in the Online Collection, and the key search words "research studies in" to obtain an article. You can select communication, finance, economics, marketing, technology, or other faculty approved topic for the research study.

Prepare a 350-700-word analysis of your selected article. Start by identifying and summarizing the hypothesis described in the article. Then explain whether the hypothesis was rejected or accepted, and what the implications of this finding are for the study.

Be sure to properly cite your article, and be prepared to discuss your analysis in class.

Learning Team One Sample Hypothesis Testing Paper

Using ratio or interval numerical data from one of the data sets available through the Data Sets link on your student website, develop one research question from which you will formulate a research hypothesis.

Prepare a 1,050-1,750-word paper describing the results of a hypothesis test of one population mean or population proportion. Be sure to include the following in your paper:

- Formulate both a numerical and verbal hypothesis statement regarding your research issue.
- Perform the five-step hypothesis test on data pertaining to your selection.
- Describe the results of your test, and explain how the findings from this hypothesis testing can be used to answer your research question.

Be sure to include your raw data tables and the results of the computations of your Z-test or t-test in your paper, using both graphical and tabular methods of displaying data and results

Review the next Learning Team Assignment. You will need to obtain approval from your instructor regarding the business research issue, problem, or opportunity identified by your Learning Team.

Learning Team Two or More Sample Hypothesis Testing Paper

Using numerical data from one of the data sets available through the Data Sets link on your student website page, develop one business research question from which you will formulate a research hypothesis that will test two or more populations.

Prepare a 1,050-1,750-word paper describing the results of a hypothesis test of two populations or more than two populations (ANOVA). Be sure to include the following in your paper:

- Formulate both a numerical and verbal hypothesis statement regarding your research issue.
- Perform the five-step hypothesis test on data pertaining to your selection.
- Describe the results of your test, and explain how the findings from this hypothesis testing can be used to answer your research question.

Be sure to include your raw data tables and the results of your computations in your paper, using both graphical and tabular methods of displaying data and results.
