Data Analysis for a Research Proposal (worth 5%)
In this assignment, we will continue to build upon the foundations laid by the readings and coursework up to this point. Consider the following problem: Astronauts on extended missions, such as those who may go to Mars, may have increased anxiety levels that can be very problematic in enclosed areas or in space suits. You wish to determine which method of anxiety reduction is best without affecting safety or astronaut performance/health. The three options are: medication, meditation practice, or both.
Based upon this information, write Section III of a research proposal (as outlined in Chapter 5 of the book) to include the data needed, how the data would be collected methodology, and treatment(s). Be sure to use a correlational, quasi-experimental, or experimental design as outlined in the readings. Table 7.1 is helpful in insuring that you adequately describe your design.
The assignment should be at least two (2) pages (size 12 font, double spaced) not including references, title pages, figures, or tables.
Use standard file type (.doc or .docx). Save your assignment using a naming convention that includes your first and last name and the activity number (or description). Do not add punctuation or special characters.
