## Study Notes

### Research Report Structure

• The Results section should focus on presenting the findings of the study, without interpreting or discussing them.

### Descriptive Statistics

• The Descriptive statistics subsection should consider statistical measures such as mean, median, mode, range, and standard deviation.

### Discussion Section

• The Discussion section should interpret the results, relate them to the literature, and explain their significance.

### Limitations Subsection

• Researchers should address the limitations of their study, including potential sources of error, biases, and areas for future improvement.

### Implications Subsection

• The Implications subsection should focus on the practical applications and implications of the findings.

### Conclusion and Synthesis

• The Conclusion and Synthesis section should summarize the main findings, reiterate the research question, and provide a final thought or recommendation.

### Summary Section

• The purpose of the Summary section is to provide a concise overview of the entire study, including the research question, methodology, main findings, and implications.

### Statistical Analysis

• The null hypothesis signifies that there is no significant difference or relationship between variables.

### Linear Regression

• Linear regression predicts continuous or quantitative data.

### Chi-Square Test

• The purpose of the Chi-Square Test is to determine whether there is a significant association between two categorical variables.

### Inferential Statistics

• The main purpose of the Inferential Statistics section is to make inferences about a population based on a sample of data.

### One-Way ANOVA

• One-Way ANOVA compares the means of three or more groups to determine if there are significant differences between them.

### Balance Principle

• The Balance principle in reporting ensures that the presentation of results is balanced, unbiased, and free from selective reporting.

### Hypothesis Testing

• The significance level is commonly set at 0.05, which means that there is a 5% probability of rejecting a true null hypothesis.
