Purpose of the Assignment: The purpose of this team assignment is to demonstrate your understanding of statistical tests, application of the correct statistical test to answer a research question, interpretation of the statistical results in common English language, and application of the findings to nursing practice, research, and education.
Detailed Description of the Assignment: The final Unit 5 assignment requires statistical analysis and interpretation of a data set weve been using since Unit 1. Included in the paper will be the application of the findings to nursing practice, research, and education. Youve been working on the statistical tests and the interpretation across the weekly activities. Each Units activities have built upon this final assignment. Now it is time to pull our analyses and interpretations together in a report format. Please follow the rubric criteria at the bottom of this page for your final assignment.
*Closely read and follow the detailed instructions on the grading rubric at the bottom of this page. The charts and tables you will need in the paper are fully described on the rubric.
1. Is the variable “Years of Experience” normally distributed? Is there a linear relationship between the variable’s years of experience and household income?
2. Is there a statistically significant difference between the pretest mean cholesterol levels (PretestChol) of the control and intervention groups?
