Scientific Research & Investigation
Researchers often go through several stages of data analysis and often conduct many different statistical tests to examine the data. For this discussion, find a journal article and analyze the results section of the article. Your article may use any type of research method, but it should not be a review article. Answer the following questions in your analysis.
What were the independent and dependent variables in the study? Note that independent and dependent variables would only need to be identified in experimental designs.
Summarize the statistical measures the authors used and what the findings were.
Were the results statistically significant? Explain your answer.
Do the results support the hypothesis? Explain your answer.
What future directions might the research take given the findings?
