Please note that this is just a preview of a school assignment posted on our website by one of our clients. If you need assistance with this question too, please click on the Submit Your Instructions at the bottom of the page to get started.

For this assignment you can assume that Likert-type scales represent an interval scale of measurement. Your responses to these questions should use complete sentences and should be in your own words. Feel free to delete the text under each question and enter you answers directly in this file
(be sure to include your name in the title of the file).
1. What is the research question your study seeks to answer?
A good research question must be specific so that it can be answered with a research project. For example, “what causes depression?” is too broad and could not be answered in a
study. “Is sunlight exposure related to depression?” would be a good research question because it is specific enough to be answered in a study. For this course, your research question should focus on the relationship between only two variables related to psychology or the behavioral sciences.
Be careful with the language you use in your research question. Terms like “effects”,
“impacts”, “leads to”, etc. would all imply a causal relationship, which would only be
appropriate if your study employs an experimental design. If your study is nonexperimental,
your research question should instead use terms like “relationship”, “correlation”, “is related
to”, “predicts”, “is associated with” etc.
2. What is the research hypothesis for your study?
A research hypothesis indicates the specific predicted relationship between the variables in a study. If you are investigating a correlation, indicate the predicted strength and direction of the relationship. If you are performing an experiment indicate the expected causal relationship.
3. What are the variables you will explore in your research question?
A variable is any measurable event, situation, behavior, or individual characteristic that varies (has at least two values). In your study you will be looking at a relationship (either causal
or correlational, depending on your research design) between two variables. You should indicate which variable would be considered the independent variable and which would be considered the dependent variable. If your study is an experiment, the independent variable is the variable that you will be manipulating, and the dependent variable is the variable that will be measured. If your study is nonexperimental, determining which variable is the independent and dependent is sometimes ambiguous. However, the independent variable is generally the variable that you think may cause or predict the dependent variable What are the operational definitions for each of your variables?
If your variable is quantitative (represented numerically) the operational definition will be
how you plan to measure the variable. This may be through self-report survey questions,
observations of behavior, physiological recordings, etc. If your variable is nominal (categorical),
your operational definition should clearly define each category.
5. What research methods will your proposed study employ?
Indicate whether your proposed study would be generally considered an experiment or a
nonexperiment. If your proposed study is nonexperimental, indicate the specific type of
research method that you are using (naturalistic observation, systematic observation, case
study, archival research, survey research, etc.). If you proposed study is an experiment, indicate
what specific experimental design you plan to use (posttest only, pretest-posttest, etc.) and
identify the experimental and control group(s). You should also explain the sampling method
you will use to select your participants (simple random sampling, convenience sampling, etc.)
and explain why this sampling method is appropriate for your proposed study.
6. What inferential test would be most appropriate for analyzing data in your proposed study?
First, you should identify the most appropriate measurement scale for each variable in your
study (nominal, ordinal, interval, ratio). Then, using the flow chart provided below, identify the
most appropriate statistical test for your proposed study. Be aware that, in the flow chart,
interval and ratio scales are interchangeable and are both simply called “scale”.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
