Do you know the Difference?
Students new to research often find some of the terms and concepts confusing as some of the terms may be used interchangeably in different areas of research, such as data and statistics. However, when reviewing scholarly research, it is important to understand the differences between some key terms.
For this discussion, I want you to take on the role of the instructor and explain the difference between the following terms: data, statistics, descriptive statistic, inferential statistic, statistical methods, and describe/identify an example of each that you find in a single research article from the SPC article databases
Post a working link and/or URL to your article (do not forget citations and references). Check out this Permalinks Tutorial to help you find a “Permalink” or “Persistent link” for your article so that you can post a direct link to the article. I recommend that you keep the tutorial for future reference (note, these links are what you should use for retrieval information in your APA formatted Reference entry when there is not a doi present).
You may wish go back and visit one of the early topics in the book, Empirical Research, as well as this week’s required reading. Outside reading is also recommended. I want to “hear” that you have a good understanding of these terms and the differences between them as you prepare to complete the next part of your Article Analysis
