Which of the concepts in these chapters was the most difficult for you? In 5-7 sentences, explain what you think you understand and ask 2-3 questions about things you know you don 't understand. Standard error of the mean

I read the section on standard error of the mean (SEM) three times and unfortunately, this concept is difficult for me to understand. I do understand that the standard error of the mean is the standard deviation of a sampling distribution of means. I understand how to calculate the SEM (simply divide the standard deviation of the sample by the square root of the sample size minus one). I understand that SEM is not the same as standard deviation. I also recognize that if the sample size is increased, the standard error of the*…show more content…*

What is the 68-95-99.7 rule for normal distribution and how is it relevant?

2. What is the purpose of SEM and when is it applied?

While researching this concept, my understanding is that SEM is used to measure the accuracy with which a sample represents a population, is this interpretation correct?

3. Are we required to calculate the SEM in our own research?

Inference Techniques

The textbook gives a great breakdown of each inference technique and provides detailed explanation of when it is acceptable to use a given technique. I understand the concepts, analysis of variance (ANOVA) and analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) in particular. I have seen both of these terms mentioned in numerous research articles but I never understood why researchers applied the technique to their study.

## Revised Shyness Scale

812 Words | 4 PagesAfter testing the reliability, the α for all 12 items of the scale was revealed to be .82 which indicates good reliability. To investigate the reliability of the scale further it was broken into 3 subscales; social, stranger and assertiveness. In relation to the three subscales social items had an α of .5, which means that this subscale is not reliable. In the table ‘Item-total statistics’ there is a column labelled ‘corrected Item-Total correlation’ This contains the correlations between each item and the total score for the subscale. If any of the items have less than .3 of a value, it means that this item does not correlate very well with the scale overall.

The results that I got back from the Jung Typology test can and will help me with a large amount of questions that I currently have about my career choice. While taking the Jung Typology test I learned that the test itself asked a great deal of personal questions about myself. By asking such an array of personal questions the test gets to know more about the test takers personality and therefore

She does try to fill me in on what they are working on and has so far seemed comfortable with what the class is doing. We have also been working on building Ashley’s vocabulary. In order to add new vocabulary in context, I have been reading Ashley high interest books with challenging vocabulary.

## Nt1310 Unit 1 Reflection Paper

516 Words | 3 PagesIn unit one we covered a lot of information that was new to me such as the introduction to the various layers of an OSI model and the different standards an ways networks can communicate such as Ethernets and ATM. I still have a fairly high level of confusion with these new-to-me topics but as it looks like we will be examining each layer in the subsequent units I believe my understanding will improve. I will address the questions presented on the learning journal assignment page directly as this has been the preference in my previous instructors. If you do not prefer this method in the future, let me know and I will just directly incorporate them in my write up. The Learning Journal Task we were assigned in the learning guide follows the questions.

## Nt1320 Unit 4

418 Words | 2 PagesDuring the interval two patients were censored (2+ and 3+) so that at the end of the interval four patients were still at risk. Since the interval ends with the death of one of those, the chance of surviving the interval is estimated as 3/4. Also notice that at the start of the next interval (4 through 10 years), only three patients were at risk due to the death at the end of the interval. The actual curve plotted from this computation is shown in Fig. 2.3.

## Summary Of Opening Skinner's Box By Lauren Slater

743 Words | 3 PagesIn the book “Opening Skinner’s Box”, Lauren Slater discusses many complicated ideas relating to certain experiments of recent times. In every chapter, she focuses on one specific experiment and poses many controversial thoughts. One of the chapters I found most interesting was the second chapter titled “Obscura”. In it she walks readers through the experiments of Stanley Milgram and questions the purpose, results, usefulness, and morality of the experiments. To begin, the purpose of the experiments seem to be off to me.

## Pocahontas And The Powhatan Dilemma Analysis

517 Words | 3 PagesNow we have all heard about the story of Pocahontas, unfortunately many of the stories we were told growing up are not completely true. Camilla Townsend, the author of “Pocahontas and the Powhatan Dilemma”, intends to inform its readers about the evolution of the many lies written and told by the Englishmen regarding their relationships with the Native America peoples that many of us have heard about today. However, Townsend has ineffectively given her readers information about the whole truth to the stories she has written about the many relationships of the English and Native Americans. Firstly, although Townsend claims to have done her research on the topic by reading all the documents written from this time period and beyond, she leaves

## Personal Narrative: Becoming A Forensic Pathologist

1031 Words | 5 PagesLike a stalker, I researched Forensic Pathologists online, I found a Pathologist online, and told him about my passion and how I wanted to become a Forensic Pathologist and asked him for guidance in my journey. He sent me a pdf file of a list of things I needed to know about the different kinds of pathology, the level of education and the importance of a Pathologist. His document also mentioned that most Pathologist were old Caucasian men because of the many years it takes, most women decides to do something else. This statement motivated me more and I made up my mind that medicine was not a choice but a must. I not only wanted to help the dead victims, to be their ears, eyes and mouth and to save lives but I wanted to encourage other females to never give up on their

## Hoyle And Gamow Analysis

1495 Words | 6 PagesOver our time as students, The Scientific Method was the basis of each and every science class we had taken. This Scientific Method was a set list of steps one must take in order to do any scientific experiment, no matter what the experiment may be or do. Though this is the usual way that scientific discoveries are published, this is not the usual way that science in general is done. In this case, when trying to discover the origins of the elements and find an explanation for how the creation of larger elements is possible, Fred Hoyle and George Gamow are both trying to prove that their respective theories of the universe, Steady-State and the Big Bang, are correct; however, they do not use the linear form of the Scientific Method, but rather

## My Reflection On My Relationship

1519 Words | 7 PagesBy reflecting on my relational resume and using it in the context of my previous relationships I discovered many things about myself and the ways that I act in relationships. For the most part, in my reflection I’m able to see what qualities caused the relationships to de-escalate and fail; this is because I’m so far out of these relationships and not blinded by the bias of liking that I’m able to see the problems that occurred instead of ignoring them. For this analysis, I’ve decided to focus on and analyze my recent long, and serious relationship of 4 years in regards to principles in the textbook such as attraction, affection, style of love, and attachment styles. First, I’ll cover attraction; attraction is defined as “a motivational state

## Is3350 Unit 3 Individual Assignment

480 Words | 2 PagesWere you involved in a single project or a series of smaller projects, or were you working in the role of a general assistant? The task of reviewing papers to collect in - vitro biotransformation rate data initially required myself to become acquainted with pharmacokinetics (PK), in vitro - in vivo biotransformation (IVIVE), physiologically based pharmacokinetics (PBPK), some mathematical equations used in the model s, and much more. I was assigned a starter exercise of reading some papers and imputing data into an Excel spreadsheet. This was to become familiar with the grand scheme project of working either from bottom up (from in vitro to liver clearance using IVIVE models then from intrinsic clearance to in vivo models using PBPK) or top down (vice versa) to estimate drug liver clearance. I was later assigned my project where I had search for literature for pharmaceuticals provided to me by collaborators in the Neth erlands at Utrecht University.

## Ethical Issues During End Of Life Care

388 Words | 2 PagesThere were several classes I attended that significantly impacted my views about death, dying, life, and living. However, for me I found it quite difficult to choose just one to highlight since they all seemed to make an impact on my thoughts and ideas in one-way or another. Nonetheless there were three classes that stood out a little bit more then the rest such as the Shifrin event, the class about bullying, and when the guest speaker came to discuss ethical issues during end of life care. From each of these classes I was able to take away some pertinent information about death, dying, life, and living. I found the lecture about ethical issues during end of life care very informative.

## My Writing Assignment

1659 Words | 7 PagesI started asking for help from my professor Kitty Burroughs and she explained where I went wrong. She wrote a handout called “Sentence Boundaries and Errors” to help people like me with these issues. This handout has all kinds of information on how to see where someone went wrong and how to fix it.(Burroughs). After reading and learning from her handout, I would go back to my essays and begin to see more of my own errors. I revised my third essay that went from 28 errors to only 13.
