Assignment: testing hypotheses for means

This week you have explored three different approaches to t tests. By this point, you know that each test has assumptions about the data and type of research questions it can answer. For this Assignment, you will be provided with three scenarios. As you read the scenarios, be sure and think about aligning the appropriate t test with the question. Consider whether the data are independent samples and if two samples are being compared.

To prepare for this Assignment:

• Review the Learning Resources and the media programs related to t tests.
• For additional support, review the Skill Builder: Research Design and Statistical Design and the Skill Builder: Hypothesis Testing for Independent Samples t-test, which you can find by navigating back to your Blackboard Course Home Page. From there, locate the Skill Builder link in the left navigation pane.
• Also, review the t test scenarios found in this week’s Learning Resources and consider the three different approaches of t tests:
• Independent sample t test
• Paired sample t test
• One sample t test
• Based on each of the three research scenarios provided, open the High School Longitudinal Study dataset or the Afrobarometer dataset from this week’s Learning Resources using SPSS software, then choose and run the appropriate t test.
• Once you perform your t test analyses, review Chapter 11 of the Wagner text to understand how to copy and paste your output into your Word document.

For this Assignment:

Write a 3-paragraph analysis of your t test results for each research scenario and include the SPSS syntax and output.  If you are using the Afrobarometer Dataset, report the mean of Q1 (Age). If you are using the HS Long Survey Dataset, report the mean of X1SES. Do not forget to evaluate if the t test assumptions are met, justify the selection of type of t test, and report the effect size. Based on your results, provide an explanation of what the implications of social change might be.

Use proper APA format, citations, and referencing for your analysis, research questions, and output.

Response paper (straw man argument)

response paper on the nationalism section will ask you to make a straw man argument. This paper is akin to the debate paper in the sense that you need to present more than one view on nationalism.The purpose of the straw man paper is to learn to make an argument that you oppose in order to demonstrate what you think is right. In the first half of the paper, you will make one argument about nationalism and then, in the second half, you will tear this “straw man” down and argue against all of the points that you made in the first half of the paper. You must use two of the texts from the nationalism section to build evidence in this paper but you can select which ones you think are useful.

This is a short paper, only 2 pages long. However, you have to be concise.
You will have to read the attached files in order to write the paper. You’ll have to refer to the readings as you build the argument. They’re short readings.

In this final project, you will prepare a powerpoint presentation on the premise that transportation vehicle with the information below. Using the URL below and the three (3) very useful resource urls (CAMEO, MARPLOT, and ALOHA), make a plan of how you will handle this problem. All 3 systems are free to be downloaded from EPA at https://www.epa.gov/cameo and can easily be learned in a day. This presentation should be no less than 10-15 pages in length. Please think the entire process through. Some pointers: where is your command and control located, do not forget about planning police, fire, and paramedics, and I would like to see screen shots of your use of the three secret resources in the syllabus.

SCENARIO:

You are the ONLY person on the road. You drive up on a diesel truck on its side with smoke bellowing from underneath it laying against a large hill of sand. You see a DOT placard with the number of 1403 on the rear and side of the truck. The fire is not too bad and you have a class A fire extinguisher in your car with you that you can easily put the fire out with. The driver is smoking and not saying anything but to PLEASE save his truck. There is a ditch with water about 4 feet deep and he has 5 gallon buckets on the truck which is perfect for putting out a fire. There is a grey gravel like substance on the ground and catches fire as well. The fires are not too large for a one person extinguishing. What do you do? In 10-15 slides minimum, and the use of the 3 urls (CAMEO, MARPLOT, and ALOHA) and the one below, give all the information you can find on this situation. Your ERG is PARAMOUNT and the url below is another ERG type help site. Give all steps you would take. Also, THIS IS AN INDIVIDUAL ASSIGNMENT- DO NOT HAVE HELP WITH THIS FROM CLASSMATES!! ANY INFORMATION USED, NO MATTER HOW SMALL MUST, MUST. MUST BE CITED WITH AUTHOR, DATE, PAGE NUMBER AS DIRECTED BY 6th EDITION APA FORMAT.
