*** You will reply to 2 classmates’ threads. At least 1 paragraph in length. They must be on the same page, but LABELED WHO’s is WHOSE. The first paragraph should be labeled (David Freij) and the other one should be labeled (Brittany Johnson) ****** When responding, explain one potential systematic error that might occur in the collection of data for the presented variables. How did you come to this conclusion based on the information provided?
A. Research question: What is the effectiveness of using a therapeutic animal for individuals with disabilities?
B. Variable one is method of therapy, variable two is effectiveness of therapy
C. Variable one, method of therapy, is a qualitative variable because it involves using either a therapeutic animal or an alternative method of therapy as methods of therapy. This is a variable categorizable by name, and not rank able by any order. It is also not a numerical variable so it cannot be a discrete or continuous variable. Because of this, method of therapy is a qualitative variable with a nominal level of measurement. Variable two, the effectiveness of therapy, is a quantitative variable because it measures outcomes of therapy that can be numerically scaled. Effectiveness of therapy is measured in a way where the zero point signifies neither an increase nor decrease of values in a scaled set of several possible measurable variables. These can include variables such as daily stress levels or levels of healthy sleep. These variables can be measured at any specific value between any possible values. Additionally, if somebody reports a 15% reduction in daily stress levels and a 15% increase in levels of healthy sleep, when compared to somebody with a 30% reduction in daily stress levels and 30% increase in levels of healthy sleep, the second values do not actually show double the effectiveness of therapy. Many of these variables can only show values that are relative to the individual. Because of this, ratios do not matter, and effectiveness of therapy is a continuous variable with an interval level of measurement
D. Example data points
Variable one, Variable two
Therapy alone, 30% increase in effectiveness of therapy
Therapy alone, 10% decrease in effectiveness of therapy
Therapy alone, 4% increase in effectiveness of therapy
Therapy alone, 3% decrease in effectiveness of therapy
Therapy alone, 10% increase in effectiveness of therapy
Therapy + therapeutic animal, 10% increase in effectiveness of therapy
Therapy + therapeutic animal, 25% increase in effectiveness of therapy
Therapy + therapeutic animal, 5% decrease in effectiveness of therapy
Therapy + therapeutic animal, 2% decrease in effectiveness of therapy
Therapy + therapeutic animal, 30% increase in effectiveness of therapy
How does family influence the value and expectation we create and carry?
The variables involved here would be the influence and the expectation or outcome. The influence could be considered to be within a set standard of “minimal, moderate, or substantial”. and the outcomes might be measured within the same means. This could be a way to interpret the information.
Because there are no numerical expectations to come, the data here would be considered qualitive. This could also mean that the data is ordinal because “minimal is less than “moderate”. I am going to say that the variables are discrete because they are not numerical outcomes that have infinite number of outcomes. The outcomes would have to fall within the “minimal, moderate, or substantial”.
I am unsure on how to add the data values for this, so this is something I will have to come back to and add. ? ( I am NOT good with statistics AT ALL, and I am working my way through this and learning this all as I go)
