Assignment Name: Unit 1 Individual Project
Deliverable Length: 3 pages
Details: In each of the assignments in this course, you will be dealing with the following scenario: American Intellectual Union (AIU) has assembled a team of researchers in the United States and around the world to study job satisfaction. Congratulations, you have been selected to participate in this massive global undertaking.
The study will require that you examine data, analyze the results, and share the results with groups of other researchers. Job satisfaction is important to companies large and small, and understanding it provides managers with insights into human behavior that can be used to strengthen the company's botXXXXX XXXXXne.

The data set for the study is a sample of a survey conducted on the population of the American Intellectual Union (AIU). It is available via the following link: Excel 2007 DataSet with DataSet Key which contains the following nine sections of data that will be used throughout our course:

◦Gender
◦Age
◦Department
◦Position
◦Tenure
◦Overall Job Satisfaction
◦Intrinsic Job Satisfaction—Satisfaction with the actual performance of the job
◦Extrinsic Job Satisfaction—external to the job, for example, office location, your work colleagues, your own office (cubicle/hard walled office, etc),
◦Benefits—Health insurance, pension plan, vacation, sick days, etc.
In the first assignment you are to complete the following:

•You will need to examine two of the nine sections of data:
◦one section of qualitative data (choose either Gender or Position)
◦one section of quantitative data (choose either Intrinsic or Extrinsic)
•Each section should include all data points listed in the column for the variable. The requirements include:
1.Identify the data you selected.
2.Explain why the data was selected.
3.Explain what was learned by examining these sets of data.
4.Your analysis should include using Microsoft Excel to obtain information about the data through the use of three measures of central tendency (mean, median, mode).
5.Your analysis should also include the use of two measures of variability (standard deviation and variance). Some measures are appropriate for qualitative data, and some are appropriate for quantitative data.
6.If a measure is not applicable, then explain why.
7.You will have to also provide one chart/graph for each of the results of the two processed sections of data (2 total), such as a pie or bar chart or a histogram. (A table is not a chart/graph.) Ensure that you label the chart/graph clearly.
8.You will then need to discuss what you additionally learned from the results of this process.
9.Explain why charts/graphs are important in conveying information in a visual format and why standard deviation and variation are important.
You will need to combine all of the items above into one comprehensive report. This report must be completed in Microsoft Word and should contain:

You have some good examples of data collection in the real world. Just be sure you have two specific studies from the library, for example if you are looking at observation you want to find an example of an article in the library that uses the observation technique. Each example of data collection should come from a different source. When you look at the pros/cons be sure to cite your text as well, what do they have to say about the methods?

Unit 1 - Accessible Statistics - MAIN POST

Kenyana R Fletcher

American InterContinental University

Introduction

This week is the study of the process methods of how we collect data

Body

The process that is used to collect data on what television shows are most watched is done by a company called Nielsen. They take the rankings of shows such as series and networks to see where shows, sports all rank for the week ending March 24th to see who out ranked the other. Every week WWE RAW always out beat all Monday airings worldwide because people love to watch wrestling.

The Pros- The way Nielsen collects data its more of a controlled type of data because they hand out devices to certain households and they have to watch certain shows they might not otherwise watch. It's a good way to show people there is more to watch on TV then just the same old series when newer ones offer so much viewing today's' audiences.

The Cons- Is its unfair to rate only what they want to rate and it seems to be a bit biased on how American and worldwide people view programming. Its like being on spied on what I watch and when. Though I watch WWE RAW or Smackdown weekly they can't control or collect data on what I watch unless they are somehow collecting it directly from television networks what channels are being tuned into the most. American Idol uses the call or text votes to reveal how many possible viewers they had. But that a default system because way more people actually watch the show that don't call or text or vote online. They just want to see who will win so some data collection is false since it can't get true results

 

Voting by call in or texting votes, As in the cons this method is hardly accurate since some viewers may elect not to do anything except simply watch all these programs merely to review the outcome. Shows like The Voice, American Idol, So You Think You Can Dance or the X Factor and America's Got Talent, all have a common practice the contestants require our votes to avoid the process of elimination . If enough votes from the viewers save them they go onto to be finalist the top ten always goes on tour.

The data they collect can be errors and maybe the votes were not properly counted so the wrong people wind up being booted this week. Shows that the Nielsen was collecting feedback networks can pull shows based on lack of viewers. Again that is wrong because those people without those boxes to rate the shows do watch them so the data sent to the networks are false and some new shows get pulled when they were actively being watched.

Conclusion

I don't think the Nielsen is the only way networks find out how successful a program is because they know this type of data would hurt their industry. Shows being watched have to be retrieved so other way such as how does the WWE know who watches their programs or how is it possible every week they get more views than all cable channels combined? That's what leads me to believe that there has to be a way networks control some form of data collecting of their own.

You have a great start by looking at some studies involving data collection methods. Be careful with to include TWO different studies that must come from the AIU library. You want to enter the full text data base and find two articles that describe data collection. What methods do they use? then you want to look at the pros/cons of these methods and remember you must cite the text when you talk about pros/cons. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------BUSN311 Unit 1 Discussion Board ---------------------------------------------------------------------------MAIN POST : Learning about the pros and cons of data collection methods will make you tougher on survey results you receive as a manager. Some methods of data collection work better in some cases and other forms are biased. The goal of statistics is to collect impartial data and to provide data analysis that does not have a pre-determined outcome. When you hear about surveys in the news, you will probably be extremely critical of their methods rather than just taking the results at face value. We cannot get away from analysis and surveys. We do them at work, at school, and often via the internet for fun. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------2 Interactive Responses The support and insightful critique that you give your classmate speaks to your leadership qualities and your ability to contribute to a general body of knowledge. You'll be called upon to provide an informed perspective again and again throughout your entire career. Take this opportunity to form best practice feedback habits and build a comprehensive feedback technique. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------BUSN311 Unit 1 Discussion Board - Possible / Earned Points---------------------------------------------------------------------------MAIN POST---------------------------------------------------------------------------Description of Data Collection Method #1 - (cite the article AIU full-text database) --10/15****This must come from the AIU library Textbook research- (requires citation) pros and cons of the data collection method #1-- 7/10****you must use the text for your pros/cons Description of Data Collection Method #2 - (cite the article AIU full-text database) --5/15****This must be cited from a different source Textbook research- (requires citation) pros and cons of the data collection method #2 -7/10****same here be sure to use our text!---------------------------------------------------------------------------INTERACTIVE REPLIES---------------------------------------------------------------------------Response #1 with citation --7/12**** Response #2: with citation --8/13**** Don't forget when you post your replies to others you must meet the requirements presented in the prompt: Interactive Reply 1: Select one student's post. Consider the four other data collection methods learned this week. Explain why each method would or would not be appropriate for the two studies discussed. (Cite and reference the textbook since you are applying knowledge you learned from the text) Interactive Reply 2: Read through other interactive replies and select one to critique. Is the analysis of the data collection methods provided based on sound logic? Explain why or why not. (Cite and reference the textbook) This means you MUST cite the text book in both of your replies to others and answer the questions presented for both replies to earn full credit. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Grade for Unit 1 Discussion Board - 44 / 75 --------------------------------------------------------------------------- She gave me a F on my DB

I can not be sure, of course, but it is very difficult to answer a question without all the information I need. But, yes, that may be why. The template is very different from what wrote I think. I think the template is very helpful to have and use!

You did a good job finding the mean of this data, remember you MUST also find the median mode and standard deviation as well as create two graphs (either a pie or bar graph) Please be sure to answer all aspects of the assignment. It is helpful after you have completed your project to go back and reread the assignment. Make sure that each and every question in the project outline. You can also download the grading rubrics to ensure that you have completed each portion by re reading over the rubric and making sure each aspect is covered in your project. Sometimes just getting started is the most difficult part of any project: small or large. Of all the projects you've successfully completed thus far in life, you've just completed another. Congrats on completing your first statistics project!---------------------------------------------------------------------------BUSN 311 Unit 1 Individual Project ---------------------------------------------------------------------------In the world statistical analysis we need to make sure that the reader knows what data we are working with so that we are all on the same page. Normally we do not present the results of all of the data that we have, but choose to report of specific sections that have meaning to a project or that will be interesting to the audience. A computer program does most of the work in a data analysis. Before computers and calculators, experts had to be competent in mathematics in order to work with these numbers. Today, the most important aspects that business people take away from statistics will be the applications. What do the results means and how can I use them to affect the bottom line or make something better?---------------------------------------------------------------------------MICROSOFT EXCEL DATA ANALYSIS---------------------------------------------------------------------------The two types of data used in statistics are quantitative data and qualitative data. To determine the type of data for a statistical study or experiment one must examine the individual observation: Quantitative Data occurs if each individual observation measures an amount or count. The words scale or score often indicate quantitative data. Qualitative Data occurs if each individual observation represents a class or category. The word rank often indicates qualitative data. While excel will calculate descriptive statistics for each type of data it is important to realize that that not all statistics are appropriate for all situations. This is where a human is necessary to think critically and present only statistics that have practical meaning for each type of data. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------------------------------------What do the results mean?
