  • MATH ASSIGNMENT: Mr. Hong was a teacher at South City San Francisco Elementary School for Science Level 8 of 25 students…

    $25.00

    Assignment #1 (One-tailed-t test)

    Mr. Hong was a teacher at South City San Francisco Elementary School for Science Level 8 of 25 students.  After he received the SAT 10 scores from last year in January this year, he wanted to make a comparison with all Level 8 Students in South City San Francisco to see if his class scored significantly different from all level 8 students.  He found out that the average score of all level 8 students on the Science test was 224.0 out of 300 questions.  Accordingly, Mr. Pele’s class raw scores are as follow:  120, 230, 240, 150, 280, 290, 300, 280, 240, 150, 160, 170, 180, 200, 250, 230, 260, 250, 280, 255, 260, 220, 250, 255, 280.   (Use your Graph Pad software to calculate all your statistics)

    1. What is the Mean score for Mr. Hong’s class?
    2. What is the Standard Deviation?
    3. Formulate your null hypothesis (nondirectional) (Three nulls)
    4. Formulate alternative hypothesis (directional (Three alternatives)
    5. Follow the seven major steps for testing the Null hypothesis and describe Each accordingly.
    6. Present your inferential statistics in Tables using APA format (Don’t forget to report all of the necessary statistics exactly the way in which the tables are shown, based on Mr. Hong’s class data.
    7. Don’t forget to use df= n-1 instead of regular n for calculation of t value.
    8. Report your Results in Apa Style and Format.

    Assignment #2: (Comparing the two means of two Independent groups using Two-tailed-t test.

    Given the test scores of Mr. Hong’s wife, Sarai, who taught 24, level 8 students at Puna Elem. School. Mr. Hong wanted to see if the average score on Sarai’s class was significantly different than his. The bottom line was, he truly wanted to see if his class performed better than or worse than his wife.  Sarai’s level 8 raw scores are as follow: (122, 230, 242, 152, 280, 290, 280, 245, 152, 160, 165, 175, 190, 245, 230, 270, 255, 260, 220, 250, 255, 278, 220, 225).  Use Graph Pad software to do all of your calculations.

    1. Calculate Sarai’’s class Mean
    2. Calculate the standard deviation
    3. Formulate the null hypothesis
    4. Formulate the alternative hypothesis
    5. Follow the seven major steps for testing the Null hypothesis and describe Each accordingly.
    6. Present your inferential statistics in tables using APA format (Don’t forget to report all of the necessary statistics exactly the way in which the table are shown, using the couple’s class results.
    7. Don’t forget to use df= n-2 since you are comparing two separate Independent Groups, using the Two-tailed Independent t test.
    8. Report your Results in APA Style and format. (This assignment is worth 90 points).
  • LASA 2—Authentic Assessment standardized report (PPT)

    Prepare a PowerPoint presentation and speaker’s notes that include:

    • A summary of the discussion with the administrator.
    • Describe the assessment (criterion-referenced, norm-referenced, a combination, etc.).
    • Identify the purpose of the test.
    • Complete your own analysis of the report data using statistical analysis techniques (frequency distributions, measure of central tendency, measures of variability, standard scores, stanines, etc.) in your analysis.
    • Based on your analysis, identify one or two classroom or grade improvement goals and actions or steps to be taken during the next year.
    • Based on the goal(s) identified, include the description, purpose, and timing of a formative assessment that will be used to determine progress toward the goal.

  • Standardized Education Vs. The Individual

    $15.00

    Your essay will pursue one main argument concerning a particular relationship between standardized education and the individual, using two of the three sources previously discussed, namely “The Banking Concept of Education,” “The Achievement of Desire,” and An Education, to support your claims.

    Standardized education means different things to different people, and individuals like Richard Rodriguez, Jenny,  you, and I may hold views on and attitudes toward standardized education (as opposed to education in general) that have little in common.  This is why from the outset of the essay, you want to establish or describe a  relationship between standardized education and the individual–real or hypothetical–in a way that enables you to bring forth an argument.

    You may, for example, describe the relationship between standardized education and the individual as one that is structured by an uneven access to authority, with the former having the power to dictate the terms and methods of learning, and the latter having little to no power to challenge the former.  How does such a relationship influence individual learners who may or may not respond well to authority or structure ?

    Alternatively, you may describe the relationship between standardized education and the individual as one that is modeled after/for existing personal and social relations that are thought to be productive, orderly, and beneficial to most people.  But within such a relationship, how might individuals who are not part of (or do not identify themselves with) the majority feel toward a system of learning that is for the majority? Basically, you can establish or describe the relationship between standardized education and the individual anyway you want, as long as you can build an argument on top of it and support it with good reasoning and concrete examples from the two sources and your own personal experience.
