Data Interpretation
201LON Data Interpretation
End-of-module Coursework: Research Report

Your task:
Write a report on a research topic of your choice. The report must analyse original data that you gathered from your own survey.  The survey can be designed and conducted in groups, but the data analysis and report writing is an individual task where collaboration will be considered as academic impropriety.
Parts of the data analysis will be either actually done or demonstrated in seminars to verify the originality of your work.
Word count: 1,500 – 2,000 words in core text excluding tables and diagrams.

Conditions:
1.     You must make use of all the following data types in your analysis.
a.     Categorical
b.    Numerical: Discrete
c.     Numerical: Continuous
2.     Your data analysis must test hypotheses and include:
a.     Describing a group (or several groups)
b.    Inference about one group
c.     Comparing two (or more) groups
d.    Analysing the relationship between two groups
Aim at using all four tasks for combinations of numerical and categorical data.
3.     Organise and visualise your data and results clearly, using tables and figures as appropriate.
4.     Explain your findings clearly.
5.     Draw conclusions from your findings. This may include recommendations where appropriate, depending on your topic.
6.     All statistical workings (Excel or SPSS output) must be shown in the appendix and in class. Failure to do either will trigger a viva voce.

Report Structure:
1.     Introduction
a.     Explain the use of your survey, justify why it is interesting to do.
b.    State your overall research question(s) / objective(s).
c.     State and shortly justify your hypotheses (min. four)
Note: There is no literature review required in this coursework. In later research reports, your literature review would come here, after your introduction, and provide the basis for your hypotheses.
2.     Data and Research Methods
a.     Explain the metrics of your survey – sampling method, sample size, etc.
b.    Limitations (either here or under 4.)
3.     Findings
a.     Test your hypotheses and provide your findings here.
b.    Summarise your findings in a professional way. Lengthy tables should be appended.
4.     Conclusion and Recommendations
Front matters include:
a.     Title page
b.    Table of contents, automatically created with your word processor’s index function
c.     Lists of tables and figures, automatically created with your word processor’s index function
End matters include:
a.     List of references (Harvard style)
b.    Appendix

       Justification of topic
       Relevance of research questions / objectives 
       Relevance of hypotheses
       Accuracy of hypotheses
       Justification of hypotheses
       Accuracy and explanation of research methods
       Awareness of limitations

Final Recommendation Report – Instructions • 200 pts.
Review the examples in Chapter 17 for the format, structure, and style for your formal
recommendation report. Include appropriate visuals (3+) that are properly captioned and crossreferenced
in your report, and academic resources (5+), with APA format in-text citations and
references. The report should be a minimum of 7-10 pages long.
Option 1 – Legal or Ethical Dilemmas. Typically, this formal report 1) defines the dilemma, 2)
identifies possible courses of action, 3) recommends one course of action, and 4) describes possible
steps for implementing that course of action. Select one of the situations below and write a formal
report that addresses the four areas outlined above.
Situation One: The lead accountant at Topper Glass has discovered that James Pederson, the Vice
President for Sales and Marketing, borrowed $15,000 from company funds to pay off personal legal
fees. He did repay the money without interest one month later, but the loan was unauthorized.
Other employees at the company have heard about the loan; they demand that the President take
action, even though Pederson is a top employee and the President’s close friend. What should the
President do? In a formal recommendation report, describe an optimal solution for the president.
Situation Two: Playtime Toys has manufactured stuffed animals in Raleigh, Wisconsin for 23 years.
Over 30% of the small town’s resident’s work at Playtime Toys. Unfortunately, the company’s
profits have declined because they can’t match the prices of toys manufactured overseas. The CEO
identifies high-wage union workers and an outdated manufacturing process as the culprits. She
feels compelled to build a new manufacturing plant in Mexico just to remain competitive, but she
knows that laying off her workers will impact the local economy. What should she do? In a formal
recommendation report, describe an optimal solution for the CEO.
Option 2 – Feasibility Report. Select one of the following situations, research options for
addressing it, and present those options in an informational and analytical report so they can make
an informed decision.
• Reduce employee health care costs
• Get rid of mice in a large factory
• Improve security in your small office building
• Find ways to increase community volunteering among employees
• Introduce a complicated new technology to your workplace
Read the grading rubric on pages two and three before beginning the assignment.
