This week, students will write a comprehensive APA analysis paper (minimum 1,600 – 2,000 words) demonstrating all the knowledge gained in CCJ 3300. Use what has been learned from the READ and ATTEND sections throughout the course (including Unit Five) and utilize at least three scholarly sources to address the items listed below. Use in-text citations and do not self-plagiarize from the previous weeks. If support is needed on how to formulate the APA Analysis paper, refer to the APA Template under the Resource tab or contact the CPS Librarians. Please refer to the grading rubric for guidance. Upon completion, click on the Dropbox tab to submit the paper for grading.
In this comprehensive paper, students will review, integrate, and synthesize all course components into a summary of what has been learned throughout the course. Students may utilize the research proposal submitted in Unit One as an example to explain some of the statistical terms learned over the past few weeks. For example, using the research questions that were proposed, identify the variables in each question. From there, determine whether the variables would yield qualitative or quantitative data. Using the variables, identify the level of measurement for each variable. Once the level of measurement is determined, identify the corresponding measure of central tendency and measure of dispersion that would apply to each level. The goal of this final assignment is to demonstrate the ability to read and interpret scholarly research based upon what has been learned throughout this course.
