1. The sampling method I used to collect my data was convenience sampling. I posted my survey on Facebook and asked those who was in college to please filled it out. Then when I was around people I knew were college students I asked them to respond to my survey.
2. Question 1, 2 and 5 were qualitative data because the responds were nonnumeric. This question were nominal level of measurement because cannot be ranked or ordered either you respond yes or no.
Question 3 was quantitative data and discrete because it was a numeric response and can only have a whole number and not a number in between. Has a ratio level of measurement because it has true zero point.
Question 4 was quantitative data and continuous because it was a numeric response and the data can take on any value in a given interval. Has a ratio level of measurement because it has true zero point.
3. Result 3: Question 3 asked students are you on a sport team in addition to being a college student. I used a bar graph to show relative frequencies of student who were on a sport team or not.
Result 4: Question 5 asked if student generally workout during the semester? I used a pie chart to show the wedge size of its relative frequency. 64.71% of the student does not work out more during the semester, while 35.29 do.
Result 5: Question 4 I asked students how many hours a week they generally workout? I used a bar graph to show relative frequencies of how many hours students worked out.
Result 6: I combine question 3 and question 4, I used the bar graph to show relative frequencies of how many hours student workout, with how many credit hours they are enrolled in.
4. The mean hours of work out for the college student in my sample were 3.88 hours a week and 2.64 as it standard deviation. This shows students average work out hours during the week 3.88 and 2.64 standard deviation away from the means.
5.
a. The mean number of hour’s college student workout during a week is less than 3 hours.
b. The null hypothesis states the mean is equal to 3 hours a week. The alternative hypothesis states the mean is less than 3 hours.
c. This was a lefttailed hypothesis test.
d. The sample size is 34 the sample mean is 3.88 and the standard deviation is 2.64.
e. The calculated test statistic is 1.94
f. The standard score corresponds to a cumulative area from the left of 0.0262, this is a small pvalue it is less than 0.05 this gives me reason to reject the null hypothesis.
g. The null hypothesis is rejected because the same pvalue provides strong evidence against it.
In writing my survey I choose a topic I really was interested in. As a student it is hard to balance my time for school work and work out time. I want to found out what was the average hours workout time during a week for other students. I just thought of question in my survey that may effort a student reason for working out. I choose to place my survey on Facebook and I received a lot of responds and I also printing a copy of my survey and when every I was around group of people I had few answer my survey that way. In collecting the data have to be very proactivity and creative.
Analyzing the data was not so hard because as long as I follow all the steps for the project that made it not so difficult. I went to the steps of the hypothesis and I already know that my null hypotheses would have been rejected because survey shows that my sample of the student I surveyed average workout hours were more than 3 hours a week. If I was to do the survey over, I do the same step. This survey help me realize we as college student also workout less because it has not requirement to complete our degree like it is to finish high school.
