STAT 2303: Midterm Project Guidelines DUE 04/04/16 Exploratory Data Analysis o Calculate 2 relevant measures of center and 2 measures of variation for all variables of interest (overall and, also, by the various groups). Interpret the results statistically in detail. Make note of any initial conclusions that you can draw from these summary statistics. o Create relevant statistical graphs/charts to explore the data. Interpret the results. o After the above data exploration, address the requirements of the procedure once again. Do we have cause for concern in terms of the requirements? Why or why not? Explain. o Identify any observations that may be possible outliers in the dataset. o Summarize and interpret all the above findings in writing. Analysis o Perform the statistical procedure(s) you deemed appropriate and report the relevant results. Be sure to include the following for hypothesis tests: List ????0 and ????1 for the test(s) performed Report the relevant test statistic(s) and p-value(s) for the test(s) Make both initial and formal conclusion(s) for the test(s) o Looking at the results from the statistical procedure, determine if we can test for main effects. Explain why we can or cannot do so providing relevant plots. o Explain if additional procedures are necessary/appropriate to address the research question more fully. If so, perform any additional analyses reporting all relevant results and summarizing your conclusions.
