RMS I Spring 2022 Final Exam

To investigate the association between extraversion and musical preference, Peter Rentfrow and Sam Gosling (2003) asked a set of undergraduate students about their favorite types of music, using a self-report questionnaire they called the STOMP (short test of music preferences). They also measured the same students’ personality traits using a self-report measure that assessed people’s extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, and other traits.

Calculate the correlation coefficient and conduct hypothesis testing to determine whether the correlation is statistically significant.

1. Identify the populations, comparison distribution and assumptions: We are sampling from a population of undergraduate students. Our comparison distribution is a distribution of correlations. Assuming the distribution is approximately normal, which statement is true about the remaining assumption?

a. The sample was randomly selected; therefore, it meets the assumption.

b. The sample was randomly selected; therefore, it does not meet the assumption.

c. The sample was not randomly selected; therefore, it meets the assumption.

d. The sample was not randomly selected; therefore, it does not meet the assumption.

2. State the Null and Research Hypotheses

i. What is the null hypothesis?

a. H0: r = 0

b. H0: r = 1

c. H0: r < 1

d. H0: r ≠ 0

ii. What is the research hypothesis?

a. H0: r = 0

b. H0: r = 1

c. H0: r < 1

d. H0: r ≠ 0

3. Determine the characteristics of the comparison distribution: r distribution with N-2 degrees of freedom

i. MX =

ii. MY =

iii. SSX =

iv. SSY =

v. SDX =

vi. SDY =

4. Calculate the test statistic:

i. r =

ii. How would you interpret the correlation coefficient?

a. large, or strong, positive

b. medium, or moderate positive

c. small, or weak, positive

d. large, or strong negative

5. Make a decision based on critical value for the r distribution for 1-tailed test with an alpha level of 0.05.

a. Fail to reject the null hypothesis because the sample correlation coefficient is greater than the critical value.

b. Fail to reject the null hypothesis because the sample correlation coefficient is less than the critical value.

c. Reject the null hypothesis because the sample correlation coefficient is greater than the critical value.

d. Reject the null hypothesis because the sample correlation coefficient is less than the critical value.

6. The population correlation coefficient r = .24, what type of error was committed?

a. Type I error because we rejected a true null hypothesis.

b. Type I error because we failed to reject a false null hypothesis.

c. Type II error because we failed to reject a false null hypothesis.

d. Type II error because we rejected a true null hypothesis.

7. If this were a distribution of means, at what size would this sample need for the central limit theorem to apply?

a. 15

b. 20

c. 25

d. 30

Q&A

GUIDES FOR FAMILIES

Students will create a guide for families and parents who have a family member with a developmental disability.  This is not a literature review, but should be a professional guide (with references) that can be given to a family who has a young child with a disability.  The guide should “walk” the family through the process of early intervention, inclusion education, and transition into adulthood.  Additionally, the guide should give descriptions, definitions, and resources for all family members as the member with the disability transitions through the life cycle.  Throughout the guide, students must include at least 3 different types of supports or approaches that have been supported by recent literature to be effective when working with individuals with disabilities and their families (examples: individual parent therapy, family support groups, facilitated family activities, individual behavior interventions, sibling support groups, etc.)

 

· Description/Definition of the disability.

· Description, information, and resources about Early Intervention (Part C Services).

·

· You should include: How to get services, what is an IFSP, how to get an IFSP, what kinds of services may be offered, what are the local resources that may be helpful.

· Description, information, and resources about Public School transition and inclusion education (Part B Services).

·

· You should include:: How to get services, what is an IEP, how to get an IEP, what kinds of services may be offered, what are the local resources that may be helpful.

· Description, information, and resources about transition into adulthood (Include information about the ADA here).

·

· You should include: What is a transition plan, when does the process begin, how can I request that it begin, what should be included in the plan, what services in the area may be helpful.

· Description, information, and resources for siblings.

· Description, information, and resources for parents (individually and as couples).

· Description, information, and resources for the entire family unit

·

· Feel free to consider family fun activities and financial assistance in this section.

· APA citations and referencing, resource citations and referencing

      Q&A

      Students will conduct a literature review on either early childhood, inclusion (elementary age), or transitioning issues that individuals with disabilities encounter as they progress into adulthood. Students will include the following:

      Disabilities Act (ADA), RehabilitationAct of 1973. Students will discuss at least 3 issues of that age. One reflection page (at the end of the literature review) including how the information researched and obtained will assist them in their current or future work in the field. Students should provide at least one real-world example and/or case study to exemplify how the information will be utilized.

      A 5- to 7-page paper, not including title page and reference section, is required. Students should select at least 6 articles from peer-reviewed journals (e.g., Journal of Autism and Developmental Disabilities) to be included in the paper (DO NOT include articles found on the internet).
