Module 1 Assignment 3: Research Design Questions

Suppose you are a researcher who wants to evaluate which type of course-delivery format (online, blended, or face-to-face) leads to the best performance in a psychological statistics class. In a paper of about 500 words, identify the following:

  • What is your research question? (Please remember to focus your study on the evaluation of the various types of course delivery for statistics courses.)

  • What is your hypothesis (both null and alternate)?

  • Is this a qualitative or quantitative design (based on type of variable collected) and why?

  • What would be an example of a variable for this study of course delivery formats that could be measured on a nominal scale? Ordinal scale? Interval scale? Ratio scale?

  • Once you have collected your data on the effectiveness of the various types of course delivery for a statistics course, would you use inferential or descriptive statistics and why?

  • Create a sample frequency distribution for one of the variables. Choose either a simple or grouped frequency distribution and explain your choice.

In responding to above questions, follow below grading criteria. In addition to citing the online course and the text, you are also required to cite a minimum of two scholarly sources. Your paper should be double-spaced, in 12-point Times New Roman font, and with normal 1-inch margins; written in APA style; and free of typographical and grammatical errors.
