The design of this book owes much to M. David Merrill, Ph.D., who in the 70a€™s was a professor at Brigham Young University. At the time, he was researching concepts for designing curriculum. He developed a method of designing instructional materials that used the principles of Rule a€“ Example - Practice. The term a€œrulea€ covered such items as a mathematical rule, a classification paradigm, a descriptive category, or other information that gives the students a a€œrulea€ for understanding the main concept being taught. The term a€œexamplea€ covered the criterion showing how the rule worked. The term a€œpracticea€ gave the student a way to perform an exercise, that is, in practicing with other variations of the example to gain experience in using the rule. For Merrilla€™s principles to be effective, the example must match the practice and the governing rule. RESEARCH a THE ANALYSIS OF RESEARCH HYPOTHESES has been designed employing Merrilla€™s theories. The a€œrulea€ is described and defined in the portion of each unit of instruction labeled a€œPURPOSE:a€ The a€œexamplea€ and matching a€œpracticea€ are described in the portion labeled a€œOBJECTIVES:a€ The body of the unit describes the rule in more detail giving examples as needed. Finally, there is an a€œassignmenta€ which requires the student to put the rule into practice. The two volumes provide a basis for doing a research study which graduate students can use as a model for their thesis or dissertation. Volume 1 covers basic principles and processes for doing a research study and Volume 2 covers the five major procedures for testing research data: the z-test, the t-test, the Pearson correlation test, the Spearman correlation test and the Chi Square test. Note: a€˜Chia€™ is pronounced a€œKaia€; the a€˜Chi-Squarea€™ symbol is: ?2The tally sheet allows you to make a single vertical mark or stroke for each score. ... One problem in using tally sheets is that you have to be very careful to ensure all data are tallied. ... Figure 30: A frequency table using class interval data.
