For this assignment you are to compute inferential statistics (i.e., hypothesis testing) on your two variables and discuss your findings. You need to include your calculation or write-up of your inferential statistics in the paper using a table and a brief discussion. If you calculated your statistics using Excel include both the spreadsheet showing your data along with your statistical calculations. If you do your statistics by hand you must discuss/show/include the actual values used in the calculation in the paper.
Calculate an inferential statistics (hypothesis) test using the research question and two variables your learning team developed for the Week 2 Business Research Project Part 1 assignment. Include:
- The research question
- Mock data for the independent and dependent variables
Determine the appropriate statistical tool to test the hypothesis based on the research question.
Conduct a hypothesis test with a 95% confidence level (remember this is different than calculating a 95% confidence interval), using the statistical tool.
Write an interpretation of no more than 350-words of the results and provide your findings. Were you able to reject or not reject the null hypothesis. What is your conclusion based on rejecting or not rejecting the null hypothesis with respect to your research question? Remember to include a short discussion of what statistics you computed and the statistical results. Include a table showing your statistical output.
Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
Submit both the spreadsheet and the paper to the Assignment Files tab.
