As indicated at the start of this third module, we are going to focus our attention on the formulation and testing of a research hypotheses—as detailed below.

**Use the following research questions to complete the assignment:**

RQ1: Does Dr. W's "Math Wiz Program" increase high school students' mathematics scores on the state graduation exam?

RQ2: Is there a relationship between gender and academic achievement in college level mathematics?

RQ3: What percentage of military flight students are female?

- First, determine whether these research questions are descriptive, correlational, or causal. Explain.
- Next, identify the research variables embedded within each research question—specifying the independent variable(s) and the dependent variable(s).
- Specify if each research variable is a discrete variable OR a continuous variable.
- Then specify the level of measure: Nominal, Ordinal, Interval, or Ratio

- Finally, formulate the corresponding
*null*and*alternative*research hypotheses for each research question.

*Before submitting your work for my review, be sure that your work meets each of the following expectations: *

- Are your research questions causal types of questions?
- Do you accurately and clearly identify the independent and dependent research variables in each research question?
- Do you accurately and clearly specify the type of data
- Do you accurately and clearly formulate a null and alternative hypotheses for each research question?
- Does your work reflect graduate level writing?
- Is your essay 3-5 pages in length?
