Excelsior College Data Analysis Discussion

Question Description

I’m working on a law writing question and need guidance to help me learn.

In this conversation, we’ll explore the data from our weekly surveys. Your instructor will provide you with the Excel worksheet which contains the data from the surveys completed in this course. The worksheet will also contain data for Dayton in particular.

What will you do with the data? Throughout the course, you have examined many different statistical analyses and their purpose and function. Be sure to visit your lifeline to determine the correct test and to refresh your memory on how to run statistical analyses in Excel.


Describe the statistical test you chose to run on the data. Why is the test appropriate from the data you chose to manipulate?

State the hypotheses for the test you are running on the data (alternative/research hypothesis and null hypothesis).

Provide the output table for your results. Were they significant? What does your test tell us about the data and why might it be useful?
