Building upon Residency Project 3, this project assignment first requires you to consider the methodology you might use in collecting data for your study. Specifically, you must address the operationalization of the variables for your study.

1. First, using the independent and dependent variables/sub-variables you identified in Residency Project 3, identify the data type of each variable/sub-variable and summarize this information in a table as shown:

Construct Variable/Sub-Variable Variable/ Sub-Variable Type      Data Type         Example:

Student Satisfaction  Instructor Ranking  Dependent  Ordinal

• Insert this table into a Residency Project 4 PowerPoint Presentation (no more than 1 slide).

2. Assume that a survey questionnaire is the most appropriate instrument for collecting data on these independent and dependent variables/sub-variables. For each variable/sub-variable you have identified ...

• Create a 2-3 question set that would be used in a survey instrument (see Example Survey Questions) to collect the data needed to accurately measure each independent and dependent variable/sub-variable. For each set of questions, carefully consider whether the wording of each question will ensure that you will obtain the same results when administering the survey more than once (reliability) and whether the set of questions are measuring what they are intended to (validity).
• Add these question sets to the Residency Project 4 PowerPoint Presentation (no more than 2 slides).

4. When you have completed the questions, write short answers (i.e., 2-3 sentences) for each of the following questions about validity and reliability:

• Do the questions fit the variables/sub-variables being studied?
• Do the options provide appropriate measures of the variables/sub-variables?
• Can the options skew the responses?
• Does the instrument accurately measure the variables/sub-variables?
• Will the instrument yield the same results if used again under the same circumstances?
• Add these short answers that address the 5 bulleted questions to the Residency Project 4 PowerPoint Presentation (No more than 1 slide).

Methodology - Quantitative Data Analysis

Using Table 1 from Creswell (2002), determine the Statistic Test / Test Statistic for Hypothesis Testing for each of your Hypotheses specified in Residency Project 3.

• Add no more than 2 slides to the Residency Project 4 PowerPoint Presentation that explains how you determined which Statistic Test / Test Statistic for hypothesis testing was appropriate for your study.

Be prepared to present your Residency Project 4 PowerPoint presentation (6 slides maximum)
