Week 4 Exercises

...Week Four Exercises The assigned exercises for week four of Business Research (BUS642) at Ashford University are as follows: Terms in Review, 1-4, on page 204 and answering questions 1-3 over the case study: Ramada Demonstrates its Personal Best. Terms in Review, #1-4, p 204 1. Compare the advantages and disadvantages of the survey to those of observation. Each method has its own set of advantages. Surveys allow the researcher to use the largest possible sample sizes while at the same time making the data quantifiable and easily sorted. Survey results are more reliable than personal observations and therefore are less biased when the survey questions are worded and asked correctly. Surveys are time consuming for both the participant and the researcher. It may be difficult to find a time that is convenient for both parties. Surveys also seek to answer specific questions whereas observation may be taken to mean any number of things and the data may be used in a random and haphazard manner. By using observation, the researcher is able to carry out research without interfering with the subject’s daily life and activities. Observation is also able to be carried out in an unobtrusive manner that allows the researcher to gather the needed information without having to ask a lengthy series of questions. Observation is quicker and less expensive than conducting research. Observation is conducted in the subject’s natural environment allowing for a true representation of action......

In this, computers are used in gathering, storing, analysis and the merging of biological data. Bioinformatics is not a research area by itself but lies between biological sciences and computational sciences. The main goal of bioinformatics is to review the value of biological information that is hidden in the large amount of data come up a clear picture of the basic biology of organisms. There are several fields that have been revolutionized by the technology used in bioinformatics (Ouzounis & Christos, 2012). These fields include human health, the environment, agriculture, energy and biotechnology. This science of bioinformatics is also called computational biology and has found a lot of use in increasing the quality of life. Bioinformatics developed due to the great need to internalize the DNA which is the code of life. Growth in the field of bioinformatics has been facilitated by development of many DNA sequencing projects. The basic biology of life is controlled by the basic molecule of life called DNA. The DNA acts as the blue print for genes which code for proteins. The proteins coded......

...Short Answers 1-7 1. How do modules help you to reuse code in a program? A. It reduces the duplication of code within a program by reusing the module that was written once. 2. Name and describe the two parts that a module definition has in most languages. A. Header and a body, header indicates starting point, and the body is a list of statements. 3. When a module is executing, what happens when the end of the module is reached? A. It’s executed and returned back to the point in main program where it was sidetracked from. 4. What is a local variable? What statement is able to access a local variable? A. A variable declared inside a local module, only statement within a module 5. In most languages, where does a local variable’s scope begin and end? A. Begins at the variables declaration within a module and ends at the end of the module in which the variable is declared. 6. What is the difference between passing an argument by value and passing it by reference? A. By value only a copy of the argument’s value is passed. By reference its passed into a special modification parameter. 7. Why do global variables make a program difficult to debug? A. Because global is used throughout all modules and hard to track.

Module 4 Exercise 36

...the GI with PMR treatment on patients’ mobility level. Should the null hypothesis be rejected for the difference between the two groups in change in mobility scores over 12 weeks? Provide a rationale for your answer.” The null hypothesis is that the mean mobility scores for both groups are the same, since the p-value 0.005 < 0.05 the null hypothesis can be rejected. Therefore the mean difficulty with mobility score for both groups must be different. “3. The researchers stated that the participants in the intervention group reported a reduction in mobility difficulty at week 12. Was this result statistically significant, and if so at what probability?” Yes, the result was statistically significant at probability p < 0.001. “4. If the researchers had set the level of significance or α= 0.01, would the results of p = 0.001 still be statistically significant? Provide a rationale for your answer.” Yes, the results will still be statistically significant because 0.001 < 0.01 “5. If F(3, 60) = 4.13, p = 0.04, and α = 0.01, is the result statistically significant? Provide a rationale for your answer. Would the null hypothesis be accepted or rejected?” In this case the result would not be considered statistically significant because 0.04 > 0.01 “6. Can ANOVA be used to test proposed relationships or predicted correlations between variables in a single group? Provide a rationale for your answer.” No, ANOVA cannot be used to test proposed relationship or......
