Quantitative Analysis Paper This assignment will be broken into several parts (see below). Using a mock research study with mock data, you will be writing a paper in the manner of a quantitative research study, including the introduction and brief literature review, descriptive statistical analysis, assertion of hypotheses and analysis of assumptions, interpretation of results and formulation of conclusions/discussion. Assignment sections (Parts 1 4) will be submitted at various points throughout the term and will be reviewed, allowing you to make revisions to resubmit for the final assignment (Part 5). Formatting for all components should be in APA 7 style.
PART 1: Introduction & Study Description (Drafted in Practice Activity 1) – Similar to the introduction of quantitative research studies, you will write a draft of the introduction and study description for the practice study described in Practice Activity 4. This will constitute a review of the literature related to the research problem identified in that assignment. This should be about 1200-1500 words in length and should include 10-12 peer reviewed journal references supporting the logical basis for this research inquiry and describe the research study, including the specific variables that will be examined (number and levels of measurement). This assignment should be written in APA 7 format. After receiving feedback on Practice Activity 1, revise and submit as part of the Final Synthesis of the Key Assignment.
PART 2: Descriptive Results (Drafted in Practice Activity 2) – You will analyze sample statistics, including both demographic and descriptive data that will elucidate the nature of the sample used in the mock study. Analyze for outliers. You will construct appropriate APA data tables and representative graphs/charts and then qualitatively describe said data. After receiving feedback on Practice Activity 2, revise and submit as part of the Final Synthesis of the Key Assignment.
PART 3: Statistical Results (Drafted in Practice Activity 4) – After receiving feedback on Practice Activity 4, revise and submit as part of the Final Synthesis of the Key Assignment.
PART 4: Assumptions & Findings (Drafted in Practice Activity 5) – Using the assumptions and statistical inference results of the Practice Activity 4, you will write up the qualitative description based on the obtained data from your analysis. This will include describing the assumptions that you tested associated with the appropriate method, describing the statistical results, and narratively summarizing the findings with conclusions and discussion of limitations/future directions that were outlined in Practice Activity 4. After receiving feedback on Practice Activity 5, revise and submit as part of the Final Synthesis of the Key Assignment.
PART 5: Final Synthesis: You will integrate all previous components into the revised mock research study paper final paper.
