oDefine statistical inference and include and explain at least one original inferential statistical calculation.
oUse StatCrunch to check the calculation and show the steps in your presentation.
oExplain how inferential statistical analysis increases understanding of the data.
·Null Hypothesis Testing
oExplain the purpose of null hypothesis testing and provide examples of null hypotheses that may be tested with the data set.
oExplain the logic of hypothesis testing and the role of the null hypothesis.
·Implications for Future Research
oDifferentiate between descriptive and inferential statistics and how they support the human services research process.
oProvide an example of a study that is a logical follow-up to your data set that yields useful descriptive data.
oProvide an example of a study that is a logical follow-up to your data set that yields useful inferential statistics.
oProvide an example of a null hypothesis inspired by your data set that adds to the human services community’s knowledge.
