PSY 315 Inferential Research and Statistics Project Part 2 Missed Appointments
Analyze the data from Part 1 using Microsoft^{®} Excel^{®} software.
Write a 700 to 875word paper that includes the following information:
·Describe what method you are using to compare groups.
·Copy and paste the output into a Microsoft^{®} Word document, and also answer the following questions:
o What is the significance level of the comparison?
o What was the alpha level you identified in Week 3?
o What was the means and variance for each variable?
o What was the test statistic?
o What was the critical value for both the one and twotailed test?
o Was your test onetailed or twotailed?
o Were you able to reject the null hypothesis? In other words, did you prove there was a difference?
·Talk about what these results mean in everyday language and in context to your chosen scenario.
·Make a recommendation based on the findings.
Format your paper according to APA guidelines.
