(Chamberlain College – Spring 2016)
Week 5 TD 1 – Descriptive Statistics
Complete a PICO(T) search on bicycle safety. What does the research say about this issue? Select one of the articles from your search. Identify the descriptive statistics. Is anything missing? To what extent are minorities included in the study (or is that demographic information available?)? How does the descriptive data help you understand the research?
Week 5 TD 2 – Inferential Statistics
Describe the inferential tests that were used (e.g., t-tests and chi-squares). Given the p-values related to the tests, how do you interpret the results? Are statistically significant findings also clinically significant? What are the recommendations, based on this paper? Share some alternate explanations (mediating or intervening variables) for the results of the study.
