Quanitative Research Plan

My topic of choice is on Mental Health disparities among minority groups.

 

The assignment:

•Craft a 7- to 9-page paper that includes the following:

 

◦The levels of measurement that will be important for your study and why.

 

◦How you will ensure content validity, empirical validity, and construct validity for your study. If any of these types of validity do not apply to your plan, provide a rationale.

 

◦How you will ensure reliability for the measurement in your study.

 

◦The strengths and limitations of the measurement instrument you have selected in terms of reliability and validity.

 

◦Which scale is appropriate for you to use for your plan and why.

 

◦A justification of how you know your scale is reliable and valid. If you can’t find reliability and validity for your scale, describe how you would demonstrate that the scale is reliable and valid.

 

◦What test is appropriate for your plan, and whether it is norm or criterion referenced.

 

◦What population is used for the scale and test (see Week 5 Discussion).

 

◦At least 10 references to the literature to support your choices and rationales.

A statistical analyst who works for a large insurance company is in the processof examining several pension plans. Because the length of life of the pension plan holders iscritical to the plans? integrity, the analyst needs to know if the mean age has changed. In the last census (1991), suppose the mean age of retirees is 67.5. To determine whether the meanage has increased, the analyst selects a random sample of 100 retirees and finds that ?x = 68.2.If we assume that the population standard deviation is ? = 3.1, can we conclude with? = .05 that there is evidence to indicate the mean age of retirees has increasedsince 1991? Provide both rejection region and p-value.

This paper is not a “”commentary”” or “”editorial”” style paper, but rather a formal research paper using scientific references as the basis for your topic. Personal experience, while sometimes relevant, should not be included for this assignment unless these experiences are linked to course concepts and the brain. Also, you should avoid using personal pronouns such as “”I”” or “”myself”” in this type of paper. The requirement for the research articles that you select is that they must have appeared in a peer-reviewed (i.e., refereed) scientific journal. (Please contact your instructor to confirm whether a particular journal is peer-reviewed.) You must use two peer-reviewed scientific articles and they must be recent, i.e., have appeared in the literature no earlier than 2006. You might use the online databases from MEDLINE and PSYCH ABSTRACTS as a source of full-text articles from refereed journals. Newspaper or magazine articles should not be used as your major reference, but can be useful if they lead you to the appropriate research article. You should avoid simply repeating the articles in summary form

rather, use them within the text of your paper to illustrate important points. To ensure that you are on the right track, you should discuss with your instructor the topic and the research articles that you have chosen.
