Assignment Overview

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.

Case Assignment

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?

  1. First, determine whether these research questions are descriptive, correlational, or causal. Explain.
  2. Next, identify the research variables embedded within each research question—specifying the independent variable(s) and the dependent variable(s).
  3. Specify if each research variable is a discrete variable OR a continuous variable.
    • Then specify the level of measure: Nominal, Ordinal, Interval, or Ratio
  4. Finally, formulate the corresponding null and alternative research hypotheses for each research question.

Assignment Expectations

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