Steps to Complete Week 3 Lab
Part 1:
Step 1: Your instructor will provide you with a scholarly article.
The article will contain at least one graph and/or table. Summarize the
article. Again, here is the scholarly article that MUST be used– file:///Users/katiejohnson/Downloads/Lab3Article.pdf
Part 2:
Title your paper: “Review of [Name of Article]”
State the Author:
Summarize the article in one paragraph:
Post a screen shot of a frequency table and/or graph from the article.
Frequency Distribution OR Graph
Step 4: Answer the following questions about your table or graph.
What type of study is used in the article (quantitative or qualitative)? Explain how you came to that conclusion.
What type of graph or table did you choose for your
lab (bar graph, histogram, stem & leaf plot, etc.)? What
characteristics make it this type (you should bring in material that you
learned in the course)?
Describe the data displayed in your frequency
distribution or graph (consider class size, class width, total
frequency, list of frequencies, class consistency, explanatory
variables, response variables, shapes of distributions, etc.)
Draw a conclusion about the data from the graph or frequency distribution in context of the article.
How else might this data have been displayed? Discuss pros and cons of 2 other presentation options, such as tables or different graphical displays. Why don’t you think those two graphs were not used in this article?
Give the full APA reference of the article you are using for this lab.
Step 5: Be sure your name is on the Word document, save it, and then submit it under “Assignments” and “Week 3: Lab”.
