Review of the Literature.

Conclusion.

 

Find three relevant research articles which:

Support the importance of your problem,

Discuss previous work on modeling/analysis in the area, and

Cover technical aspects of the methods from class.

Scholarly articles can be found in the Online Library, in databases such as JSTOR or ProQuest. At least three of your articles must be peer-reviewed, full-text articles from scholarly journals

Note: In this assignment, only submit an outline and references in APA format.

You must have short summaries under the headings but do not submit the entire paper. In the Final Paper, you will explore in detail one of the statistical research approaches discussed in the course, applying it in the context of a specific application or methodological study.

This will help you gain a deeper understanding of the topic of your choice and gain experience in translating these ideas into practice.

Note that this paper is not about examining the content of research; it is about examining how the data is analyzed, looking at a statistical technique, and discussing how that technique is used in research studies.

Begin by choosing an application domain, data set, or methodological question of interest to you that incorporates at least one of the statistical methods presented in the course.

You are encouraged to choose research problems relevant to your own research interests and activities related to business, economics, finance, management, social science, health, psychology, or education.
