Add BaselineCompliance to the row and InterventionCompliance to the column. Click the Statistics button and choose Chi-Square and McNemars. Select eta to report the Effect Size. Click suppress tables. Click OK. Report the frequencies of the events, the Chi-square, and the McNemar’s p level. Report (p =value). Report the p level out three digits. MANN WHITNEY U: Identify the variables InterventionGroups and Using the Analysis Menu, go to Nonparametric Statistics, go to Legacy Dialogs, go to 2 Independent samples. Add InterventionGroups to the Grouping Variable and PatientSatisfaction to the Test Variable. Check Mann Whitney U. Click OK. Report the Medians or Means, the Mann Whitney U statistic, and the p level. Report (U =value, p =value). Report the p level out three digits. WILCOXON Z: Identify the variables BaselineWeight and InterventionWeight. Go to the Analysis Menu, go to Nonparametric Statistics, go to LegacyDialogs, go to 2 Related samples. Add the BaselineWeight and InterventionWeight in the Pair 1 fields. Click OK. Report the Mean or Median weights, standard deviations, Z-statistic, and p Report as (Z =value, p =value). Report the p level out three digits.

Part 2

Write a 1,000-1,250-word data analysis paper outlining the procedures used to analyze the parametric and nonparametric variables in the mock data, the statistics reported, and a conclusion of the results. Include the following in your paper: Discussion of the types of statistical tests used and why they have been chosen. Discussion of the differences between parametric and nonparametric tests. Description of the reported results of the statistical tests above. Summary of the conclusive results of the data analyses. Attach the SPSS outputs from the statistical analysis as an appendix to the paper. Attach the “Comparison Table of the Variable’s Level of Measurement” as an appendix to the paper.

Use the following guidelines to report the test results for your paper: Statistically Significant Difference: When reporting exact p values, state early in the data analysis and results section, the alpha level used for the significance criterion for all tests in the project. Example: An alpha or significance level of < .05 was used for all statistical tests in the project. Then if the p-level is less than this value identified, the result is considered statistically significant. A statistically significant difference was noted between the scores before compared to after the intervention t(24) = 2.37, p = .007. Marginally Significant Difference: If the results are found in the predicted direction but are not statistically significant, indicate that results were marginally Example: Scores indicated a marginally significant preference for the intervention group (M = 3.54, SD = 1.20) compared to the baseline (M= 3.10, SD = .90), t(24) = 1.37, p = .07. Or there was a marginal difference in readmissions before (15) compared to after (10) the intervention ꭓ2(1) = 4.75, p = .06. Nonsignificant Trend: If the p-value is over .10, report results revealed a non-significant trend in the predicted direction. Example: Results indicated a non-significant trend for the intervention group (14) over the baseline (12), ꭓ2(1) = 1.75, p = .26. The results of the inferential analysis are used for decision-making and not hypothesis testing. It is important to look at the real results and establish what criterion is necessary for further implementation of the project’s findings. These conclusions are a start.

Assignment Question

Role of Theoretical Knowledge in Practice at All Levels

Healy (2014) discusses the relationship between discourse and practice by noting that “truth claims” have shaped our notions of practice. Truth claims are assertions that the system holds to be true and shape our understanding of service users’ needs but may not always be true. Address the following: What are some of the truth claims that apply to the groups of people with whom you work with Severe Substance Addiction? How do those truth claims change based on the level at which you practice (micro, mezzo, or macro)? Has this helped or hurt the client group with which you interact?

## Analyze at least 10 requirements from that document using INCOSE’s characteristics for good requirements

Assignment Question

Assignment Details and Requirements: Locate a publicly available requirements document for a system of which you are familiar. I have provided an example requirements document for your optional usage as part of this homework assignment, but I believe it will be more useful and interesting if you locate a requirements document that is related to your employment or field of interest. Analyze at least 10 requirements from that document using INCOSE’s characteristics for good requirements (see 4.3.2.2 SEHv4):

• Individual requirement quality factors (Necessary, Implementation Independent, Unambiguous, Complete, Singular, Achievable, Conforming). Apply these factors to each requirement selected.

• Collective set of requirements quality factors (Complete, Consistent, Bounded). Apply these factors accordingly to the entire group (as a whole) of selected requirements. Use any tool to do this work (e.g., Word, Excel) and show the text of the requirement that you are analyzing and your assessment of the quality factors and any suggestions on how to address inadequacies that you discovered. If the domain is unfamiliar to you, make up a reasonable number of functional / performance / constraint requirements – the goal here is to show your familiarity with the quality factors and how to apply them, not to establish the requirements for an actual system.

## Discussion #3: The Crusades-What content did you learn that was new to you or that surprised you? How did you feel about what you learned about?

Assignment Question

Discussion #3: The Crusades.This week was all about the Crusades and how they were such an important series of events religiously, economically, and politically. While learning about the Crusades, many of you acquired new skills in understanding, organizing, and evaluating historical evidence, as well as structuring a DBQ Essay.

For the discussion this week, you will be examining the process you took as you embarked on this challenging assignment – please provide the following in 3 well-developed paragraphs (one for each prompt): In one well-developed paragraph: discuss the process you underwent when writing the Crusades DBQ Essay – you don’t have to address each of these questions, but you may consider addressing the following: Was this process new to you? What challenges did you encounter when writing the essay – perhaps structuring your argument or analyzing the documents? In one well-developed paragraph: What content did you learn that was new to you or that surprised you? How did you feel about what you learned about? In one well-developed paragraph: What skills did you develop from doing this assignment that will help you in your future studies? Then, thoughtfully and respectfully respond to two of your classmates’ posts in at least three well-developed sentences each.

## Create a detailed “findings” section that documents at least two of the domain worksheets you produced for the Data Analysis. Finally, you will write a “discussion” section that summarizes your findings and establishes their significance.

Assignment Question

Create a detailed “findings” section that documents at least two of the domain worksheets you produced for the Data Analysis. Finally, you will write a “discussion” section that summarizes your findings and establishes their significance. There is no word or page requirement for this assignment. I would just like you to be as thorough as possible and include as much detail as you can. Implementing word or page requirements doesn’t work well with this assignment because much of that will depend on the quotes that are shared, which are going to vary widely.

Following are directions for how to complete each requirement: Data Sources For this requirement, you need to briefly describe the data sources that you used. It would probably be easiest to create a table with the required information but you can format it however you want. For the interview transcriptions you used, please use the pseudonym assigned to the interviewee and include any of the relevant demographic characteristics that you draw on in your findings and discussion. For example, you should try to include things like social class, gender, and age if you use that information to frame your findings. Include the same information for all of the interviewees, regardless of whether or not you specifically use that information to describe them. For example, even if you only reference the ages of four of the interviewees in your findings, please include the ages of all of the interviewees that are included in your analysis overall. Findings For the findings section, you will need to summarize what you learned during the Data Analysis process. You should use the domain and theme worksheets you produced as the basis for this summary. I would like you to summarize your two most important/significant findings. There are different ways you can organize this section, but the most direct approach is to summarize one domain and theme worksheet as one finding. If you use this approach, you would structure each finding summary in the following way: Introduce the finding. Explain it generally, being sure to establish why it’s important and providing any necessary context your reader will need to understand it. Explain how you know. This is where the domain worksheets become important. You want to share specifics from your data analysis to support your claims about the finding and show why it matters. This is where you will share the quotes you selected and it can also be helpful to include counts and proportions. You might, for instance, say “in 6 of the 10 interviews I analyzed, the respondents indicated that…”.

You should try and provide as much support as possible! I won’t penalize you for using too many quotes. Make sure that you provide context for quotes and summarize them. You don’t want to “dump” a bunch of quotes into a paragraph without establishing context for them. You should always provide any relevant information about a person’s class position, gender, race, age, and so on that is necessary for framing their experience. Summarize the finding. Explain its significance and explain what you think your reader should conclude from the data that you presented. You are not required to use this structure and I would like you to use a format that fits with the way you organized your data analysis. Sometimes, for example, it makes more sense to combine multiple domain worksheets to summarize a single finding. Discussion For the discussion section, I’d like you to write at least one paragraph for each of the following requirements: A summary of your findings overall. Summarize each finding and then reflect on how the findings are connected and what they tell us about people’s college experiences overall. Be sure to establish the sociological significance by establishing connections to things like race, class, gender, and so on. Implications of your research. Your findings and summary explained what you learned from the data (from our sample of people) and for this requirement, you want to expand the scope of your analysis and think about what this means overall. You don’t want to make sweeping generalizations because your analysis is only based on a convenience sample of 10 interviews but think about whether there’s evidence of significant changes, what this might mean for people, and whether there are any issues that might need to be addressed via policy. Notes review the following carefully: When you cite your sources and share quotes, never use the source numbers that you assigned. Only use the interviewees’ pseudonyms. Source numbers are meaningless to anyone but you. You shouldn’t include page numbers either because quotes from the sources aren’t anything that your reader would normally look up (I might do that, but I’m also not a “normal” reader of your work). Please “clean up” the quotes that you share. This doesn’t mean that you should edit the grammar or change words for clarity (it would be unethical to do that), only that you should trim quotes so only stuff that is relevant is included. It is fine to trim words from anywhere (beginning, middle, or end) of a quote. If you trim from the middle of a quote, please include ellipses in brackets (like this: […]) to indicate that trimmed words from the middle of a quote. You don’t need to use ellipses if you trim from the beginning or end of a quote. You should generally only trim longer phrases. For instance, if someone said: “You know, I used to get really frustrated… I guess I talked about this earlier, but… you know, having to always ask customers to put on their masks is annoying but now, it’s just like… I’m used to it”, you might edit it in this way: “I used to get really frustrated […] having to always ask customers to put on their masks but now, it’s just like… I’m used to it.” The information that was removed didn’t add any necessary context, nor was it necessary to include it to demonstrate how the interviewee communicated. You do not want to go through the quote and edit out all instances of people doing things like using filler words or even stumbling over words. That sort of thing can be important! It’s perfectly acceptable to paraphrase things people said. You generally want to let the interviewees or observers speak for themselves by sharing the exact language they used but there are cases where people will not have communicated something in a way that is easy to quote and quoting a lot can get excessive. You want the quotes you share to be things that are impactful, so don’t feel like you should just be stringing quotes together.
