Assignment 4

 Thesis Statement for the Integrative Literature Review

In this assignment, you will create the thesis statement for your Final Assignment. The thesis is the statement of your perspectives on the literature. It should also include the rationale and relevant empirical and theoretical background supporting your perspectives. The primary objective of this assignment is to outline specific areas of inquiry you intend to answer in the course of the Integrative Literature Review. Although they may change during the course of the review, articulating these areas of inquiry early will help provide focus and direction for your research.

Begin by introducing the areas of inquiry to be included in your Integrative Literature Review. Explain your perspective on the literature and include how you arrived at this viewpoint, how the literature you have chosen to include supports this viewpoint, and why this perspective is relevant to the field of psychology.

Based on your introduction, briefly discuss the literature you have chosen by integrating concepts developed from your four different content domains. Be sure to utilize at least one peer-reviewed source per domain. Construct clear and concise arguments using evidence-based psychological concepts and theories to support your perspectives regarding the literature. 

To conclude your assignment, identify any overarching implications shown in the studies and describe how these influenced your perspectives on the literature.

SPA103 week 4 discussion 2

 ¡A Presentar en Español!

Prepare: To prepare for this activity, review the vocabulary and grammar explanations from Capítulo 4. Continue to practice conjugating verbs in the present tense, to ask and answer questions, and to familiarize yourself with the vocabulary by completing several of the assigned practice activities in MySpanishLab.

Reflect: What makes your city unique? What kinds of things do you and your friends enjoy doing on the weekends? Can you convey what you think will happen in the future? When was the last time that you wrote a postcard? What picture would make a perfect postcard for your city or town?

Write: Choose one of the following activities to use for your initial response. Activity #1: In Capítulo 4 of your primary text, explore activity 4-20 Qué Será, Será… (p. 148). Use the ir + a + infinitive construction to predict the future for yourself, your friends, your family, famous people, and so forth.

Write five predictions of what will occur in the future for five different subjects (e.g., your children, the president of the United States, you, etc.). Consult page 148 for a model. Activity #2: In Capítulo 4 of your primary text, explore activity 4-38 Una Tarjeta Postal (A Postcard) (p. 159). Write a postcard highlighting different things in your city or town. See if you can convince your classmates to visit!

Use the following questions to organize your ideas. Write at least five complete sentences. Consult the model on page 159 of your primary text if needed. ¿Qué lugares hay en tu pueblo o ciudad? ¿Por qué son importantes o interesantes? Normalmente, ¿qué haces allí? ¿Adónde vas los fines de semana? ¿Qué te gusta de tu pueblo o de tu ciudad? Activity #3: In Capítulo 4 of your primary text, explore activity 4-22 En Tu Opinión (p. 150). Complete the following sentences about volunteer work. Be sure to follow up with additional details to give the reader a clear description of your opinion. Refer to the model on page 150. Yo (no) soy un/a consejero/a perfecto/a porque… Dos trabajos voluntarios que me gustan son … Hay muchas residencias de ancianos en los Estados Unidos porque… Yo apoyo al candidato __________ porque . . . Cuando repartes comidas, puedes . . .

Respond to Peers: Read through your classmates’ posts. Choose two different posts, and ask one question to each classmate, in Spanish, to elicit more information (Due by Day 5). Also, respond to one of the questions posed by your classmates in response to your initial post (Due by Day 5).

Note: You will have a minimum of four posts, in Spanish, in this forum: Your initial post (Due by Day 3) A question posed to classmate 1 (Due by Day 5) A question posed to classmate 2 (Due by Day 5) An answer to a question posed by a classmate in response to your initial post (Due by Day 7)

Tips for success: Post your initial response by Day 3. If you post late, you may not have a question from a classmate to respond to in order to fulfill that portion of the prompt. As you interact with peers, please look for posts that don’t have questions from classmates first. That way, we can ensure that everyone has an opportunity to practice both asking and answering questions.

Problem 1)


A skeptical paranormal researcher claims that the proportion of Americans that have seen a UFO is less than 1 in every one thousand. State the null hypothesis and the alternative hypothesis for a test of significance.


Problem 2)


At one school, the average amount of time that tenth-graders spend watching television each week is 18.4 hours. The principal introduces a campaign to encourage the students to watch less television. One year later, the principal wants to perform a hypothesis test to determine whether the average amount of time spent watching television per week has decreased. Formulate the null and alternative hypotheses for the study described.


Problem 3)


A two-tailed test is conducted at the 5% significance level. What is the P-value required to reject the null hypothesis?


Problem 4)


A two-tailed test is conducted at the 5% significance level. What is the right tail percentile required to reject the null hypothesis?


Problem 5)


What is the difference between an Type I and a Type II error? Provide an example of both.

Problem 1)


Steven collected data from 20 college students on their emotional responses to classical music. Students listened to two 30-second segments from “The Collection from the Best of Classical Music.” After listening to a segment, the students rated it on a scale from 1 to 10, with 1 indicating that it “made them very sad” to 10 indicating that it “made them very happy.” Steve computes the total scores from each student and created a variable called “hapsad.” Steve then conducts a one-sample t-test on the data, knowing that there is an established mean for the publication of others that have taken this test of 6. The following is the scores:


5.0 5.0


10.0 3.0


13.0 13.0


7.0 5.0


5.0 15.0


14.0 18.0


8.0 12.0


10.0 7.0


3.0 15.0


4.0 3.0

 Conduct a one-sample t-test. What is the t-test score? What is the mean? Was the test significant? If it was significant at what P-value level was it significant? What is your null and alternative hypothesis? Given the results did you reject or fail to reject the null and why? (Use instructions on page 349 of your textbook, under Hypothesis Tests with the t Distribution to conduct SPSS or Excel analysis). Problem 2) Billie wishes to test the hypothesis that overweight individuals tend to eat faster than normal-weight individuals. To test this hypothesis, she has two assistants sit in a McDonald’s restaurant and identify individuals who order the Big Mac special for lunch. The Big Mackers as they become known are then classified by the assistants as overweight, normal weight, or neither overweight nor normal weight. The assistants identify 10 overweight and 10 normal weight Big Mackers. The assistants record the amount of time it takes them to eat the Big Mac special. 1.0 585.01.0 540.01.0 660.01.0 571.01.0 584.01.0 653.01.0 574.01.0 569.01.0 619.01.0 535.02.0 697.02.0 782.02.0 587.02.0 675.02.0 635.02.0 672.02.0 606.02.0 789.02.0 806.0 600.0 Compute an independent-samples t-test on these data. Report the t-value and the p values. Were the results significant? (Do the same thing you did for the t-test above, only this time when you go to compare means, click on independent samples t-test. When you enter group variable into grouping variable area, it will ask you to define the variables. Click define groups and place the number 1 into 1 and the number 2 into 2). What is the difference between the mean of the two groups? What is the difference in the standard deviation? What is the null and alternative hypothesis? Do the data results lead you to reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis? What do the results tell you? Problem 3) Lilly collects data on a sample of 40 high school students to evaluate whether the proportion of female high school students who take advanced math courses in high school varies depending upon whether they have been raised primarily by their father or by both their mother and their father. Two variables are found below in the data file: math (0 = no advanced math and 1 = some advanced math) and Parent (1= primarily father and 2 = father and mother). Parent Math1.0 0.01.0 0.01.0 0.01.0 0.01.0 0.01.0 0.01.0 0.01.0 0.01.0 0.01.0 0.01.0 0.01.0 0.01.0 0.01.0 0.01.0 0.01.0 0.01.0 0.01.0 0.01.0 0.01.0 0.02.0 0.02.0 1.02.0 1.02.0 1.02.0 1.02.0 1.02.0 1.02.0 1.02.0 1.02.0 1.02.0 0.02.0 0.02.0 0.02.0 0.02.0 0.02.0 0.02.0 0.02.0 0.02.0 0.02.0 0.0 Conduct a crosstabs analysis to examine the proportion of female high school students who take advanced math courses is different for different levels of the parent variable. What percent female students took advanced math class What percent of female students did not take advanced math class when females were raised by just their father? What are the Chi-square results? What are the expected and the observed results that were found? Are they results of the Chi-Square significant? What do the results mean? What were your null and alternative hypotheses? Did the results lead you to reject or fail to reject the null and why? Problem Four) This problem will introduce the learner into a technique called Analysis of Variance. For this course we will only conduct a simple One-Way ANOVA and touch briefly on the important elements of this technique. The One-Way ANOVA is an extension of the independent –t test that can only look at two independent sample means. We can use the One-Way ANOVA to look at three or more independent sample means. Use the following data to conduct a One-Way ANOVA: Scores Group1 12 13 12 23 24 24 35 36 3 Notice the group (grouping) variable, which is the independent variable or factor is made up of three different groups. The scores are the dependent variable. Use the instructions for conduction an ANOVA on page 366 of the text for SPSS or Excel. What is the F-score; Are the results significant, and if so, at what level (P-value)? If the results are significant to the following: Click analyze, then click Compare Means, and then select one-way ANOVA like you did previously. Now click Post Hoc. In this area check Tukey. If there is a significant result, we really do not know where it is. Is it between group 1 and 2, 1 and 3, or 2 and 3? Post hoc tests let us isolate where the level of significance was. So if the results come back significant, conduct the post hoc test as I mentioned above and explain where the results were significant. What do the results obtained from the test mean?
