Assessment Instructions
What do you need to do for this assessment?
You will have to produce a statistical report from a collection of given datasets. You will receive a data set and scenario(s). Using your analysis of the data you will have to make a written recommendation.
You will have to work in Excel for many of the tasks, but you will then need to transfer data into a Microsoft Word document for your final report.  
You will have approximately 3 weeks to complete the report and you will have to update your tutor with your progress on a weekly basis.

For this assessment you should make use of the following formative activities that you have already completed. These activities have been designed to support this summative assessment:

• Cycle 3: The Use of MS Excel for Statistical Data Analysis

Please note:
This is an individual assessment so you should not work with any other student.

Before you submit this assessment, you will have an opportunity to update your tutor on your progress and receive advice.

Your investigation should be presented in two main sections:
1: You should include a full numerical summary of the data in the study. You should include an explanation of the factors, types and any lurking variables which may be present in the study and any future research. You should highlight any possible errors in measurement, data anomalies or outliers and describe their effect on your conclusions. You should describe any correlation between the variables, if present.
Whatever your recommendations are – they must be clearly supported by your calculations using the supplied study data
2: Your task is to analyse the study data and present your recommendations
You should summarize any findings in the form of supported recommendations. The clarity of these recommendations and their reasons are paramount. Therefore, you should not use any statistical ‘jargon’ in your recommendations or in your justification for your recommendations.

Theory and/or task resources required for the assessment:
1: You will have to demonstrate skills in finding the measures of location and spread and creating charts. You will also need to compare scores on different datasets.

2: You will have to demonstrate skills in creating scatter graphs, finding correlation and regression coefficients, and interpreting these results.

3: You will have to demonstrate skills in random sampling, constructing grouped frequency tables, graphing data sets, and calculating confidence intervals.

4: You will have to demonstrate skills in the use of Microsoft Excel for data analysis.

5: You will have to make a reasoned written recommendation based on your analysis of the data.
