**Data**[WU1] ** Analysis Project**

**Introduction **

Please briefly describe the objective of this study. What’s the point? Why is it worth studying? What are you hoping to accomplish? Write this in 3-4 sentences as a business objective for the study.

**Purpose**

The[WU2] primary purpose of this study was to determine if there is a significant relationship between<insert independent variable> and <insert dependent variable>. The independent variable was <insert independent variable> and the dependent variable was <insert dependent variable>.

The[WU3] secondary purpose of this study was to determine if there is a significant difference in the average <average what> between <insert variables>.

**Research Question and Hypotheses**

This study sought to answer the following research questions:

*Research Question 1*: What is the relationship between between<insert independent variable> and <insert dependent variable>.

*Research Question 2:* Is there a difference in average <average what> between <insert variables>.

I sought to answer the research questions by testing the following null hypotheses:

*Null Hypothesis for R1:* There is no significant relationship between <insert independent variable> and <insert dependent variable>

*Alternative Hypothesis for R1:* There is a significant relationship between <insert independent variable> and <insert dependent variable>

*Null Hypothesis for R2:* There is no significant difference between the average <average what> in <insert variables>.

*Alternative Hypothesis for R2:* There is a significant difference between the average <average what> in <insert variables>.

**Data Analysis**

**Descriptive Statistics**

The data were analyzed using the Microsoft Excel software. Descriptive statistics were generated.

The data was collected on (insert date). During this time, the researcher collected data from ( ). The sample consisted of (#) participants. The variables included in the data were (describe each variable and how they were measured i.e., *operationalized meaning mean, standard deviation, minimum, maximum for each variables.* *Write this in paragraph form for every variable you are including in the study only, if you are not including the variable in the study no need to write about it.* *Write this like: “There were 18 males in the study, with an average height of 62 inches, minimum height of 52 inches, maximum height of 70 inches, and a standard devistion of 3. and maximum of *).

**Inferential Statistics**

**Regression Analysis**

In order to test the relationship between *<insert independent variable> and <insert dependent variable>*, a regression analysis was conducted. The results indicate there is/is not a significant relationship between *<insert independent variable> and <insert dependent variable>*, *significance F* = (see Table 1). Figure 1 illustrates the increase and decrease in *<insert independent variable> *dependent upon the *<insert dependent variable>*, revealing there is/is no correlation between *<insert independent variable> and <insert dependent variable>*.

**Two-Sample Hypothesis Test**

In order to test for a significant difference in the average of *<insert dependent variable>* between *<insert independent variable 1> and < insert independent variable 2>*, a two sample t-test was conducted. The results indicate there is/is not a significant difference in the average* <insert dependent variable>* between *<insert independent variable 1> and < insert independent variable 2>.*, *P* = .930 (see Table 2).

**Conclusions (remove the box and type in a paragraph)**

The results indicate that the null hypothesis that (place null here!) was/was not rejected.

The conclusions section should have three things: (a) a summary of the results [without numbers]; (b) recommendations for stakeholders [note: [WU3] Please do NOT use the term *stakeholders.* Please determine WHO the stakeholders are and refer to them specifically: teachers, administrators, organizational leaders, etc.]; and (c) recommendations for future research [Recommendations for future research often include using different populations (e.g., by gender, age, ethnicity, location, etc.), a larger and more diverse sample size, or introducing other variables]. Be sure to use *logic* when recommending future research. What would be the next logical research step? What else would organizational leaders want to know about their employees, performance, etc.?

[WU1]Any place you see a highlight is something you should address. Remove all highlights and all of my comments before submitting so you send in a nice clean paper. Stick to my format presented here only. Failure to remove my comments will result in your paper not being graded.

[WU2]This purpose statement will address the regression analysis

[WU3]This purpose statement will address the T-Test. Remember, you may have to create groups (indicate what is large vs. small and then split the groups) in order to run a two sample t-test.
