Initial Post Instructions

Describe a hypothesis test study that would help your work or conclusions in some way. Describe what variable would be tested and what would be your guess of the value of that variable. Then include how the result, if the null were rejected or not, might change your conclusions or actions in some way.


Every research today starts with a simple idea or an observation. Boswell and Cannon (2020) term this observation or idea as a hypothesis. They state that it predicts whether or not a relationship exists between variables in a given population. Most importantly, they state that a complete hypothesis should contain all components of a PICOT: study population, predictor variable, outcome variables, and comparison of interest (Boswell & Cannon, 2020). Hypotheses occur in one of two forms. They can be null or alternative. Null hypotheses, also referred to as statistical hypotheses, predict no correlation or association between the variables in a study. An alternative hypothesis makes a claim that is contradictory to the null hypothesis (Boswell & Cannon, 2020). …Click link below to purchase full tutorial at $5
