Course Project Overview
Overview
In this course project, you will conduct a small research project which involves statistical data analysis using an existing data set or your own data set. The project involves identifying a research topic in environmental sciences and a data set, formulating a statistically testable question and hypothesis, summarizing the data set visually and numerically, performing a hypothesis test, and stating a conclusion. The project will be progressively completed each week as a part of weekly assignments. The weekly deliverables are as follows:
Week 1: Topic selection
In Week 1, you will start planning for the course project, you will select a topic, explore available data related to your topic, formulate potential research questions, and review literature. It is recommended to select a topic which is beneficial to your career and/or future work. You will complete these tasks by using an accompanied project worksheet (Project deliverable 1: Topic selection). The grading criteria are indicated in the project worksheet.
Week 2: Data and research question
In Week 2, you will finalize the research question and select a data set. The selected data set should align with your research question. You will also summarize the data visually and numerically. Refer to “Data and research question” in selecting a data set and formulating a research question. You will complete these tasks by using an accompanied project worksheet (Project deliverable 2: Data and research question). The grading criteria are indicated in the worksheet.
Week 3: Confidence interval
In Week 3, you will calculate the confidence interval of the project data set and interpret the interval in words. You will complete these tasks by using an accompanied project worksheet (Project deliverable 3: Confidence interval). The grading criteria are indicated in the project worksheet.
Week 4: Hypothesis test
In Week 4, you will conduct a hypothesis test using the project data set. It involves stating your research question as a hypothesis in words and using symbols, selecting a significance level and probability distribution, calculating the test statistic and p-value, and stating a conclusion of the study. You will complete these tasks by using an accompanied project worksheet (Project deliverable 4: Hypothesis test). The grading criteria are indicated in the worksheet.
Week 5: Presentation
Presentation: You will create a video to summarize the project and share it with your classmates in the Week 5 discussion. Here are the minimum requirements of the presentation:
One slide as an introduction to the topic
One slide to state your research question. The research question should be stated as a hypothesis in words and using symbols.
One slide to identify a data source for your information. If you use an existing data set, describe how the data were collected. If you use your own data, describe the method you collected the data.
One slide to show and interpret the descriptive statistics and graph of your data set.
One slide to show and interpret the confidence interval
One slide to show the results of the hypothesis test. This slide should contain the significance level, test statistics and p-value.
One slide to conclude your study.
One slide for references in APA format. The references should include the data source if you use an external data set.
You can use Canvas Studio to record your presentation. The expected length of the presentation is 3-5 minutes.
Your presentation will be posted in a discussion in Week 5. Because of this the directions below are on how to record and post your presentation as a discussion.
Record your presentation as a screen capture using Canvas Studio:
Click “Reply” below, then in field where you type your response, click the Canvas Studio Icon Canvas Studio Icon.png

A pop up asking to open Screen Recorder Launcher v2.0 will appear, click “Open” to begin the recording process
Note: If you have previously installed the Screencast-o-matic application, you may need to uninstall it in order to install this application.
When you have finished recording, select “Upload” to upload your video to your Canvas Studio Media Library.
After recording your video, it should appear in the Canvas Studio pop up. Select the video, leave the “Display Media Tabs” checked on, and then click “Embed”.
Be sure to request captions for your video after recording it; you have peers who will benefit from this accessibility:
In the media tabs that appear in your embedded video, click the “Captions Tab”
Under “Captions Request”, select “English” from the dropdown menu, then click “Request”
Canvas Studio will generate the captions in a few minutes. Do not navigate away from this page!
When captioning is completed, click the “Review & Publish” button. Read over the captions to ensure their accuracy (especially if you are using technical terminology), then publish them.
Click “Post Reply” to add your captioned video to the Discussion Board.
When responding to your peers’ videos, please make your response post by clicking “Reply” below their post (as you have done previously); comments attached directly to their videos may not be assessed by your instructor.
The Canvas Studio Guide Links to an external site.has information for Student Users.
To view and manage all of the videos you’ve recorded, go to your Studio Links to an external site.page, click Canvas Login, and then log in using your Unity credentials.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
