Evaluating Recent Research
Go to the online library and find a recent (no older than 3 years) article reporting the results of a nursing or health research study in which an ANOVA or Kruskall-Wallis test is used (try using health research and ANOVA or Kruskall-Wallis test as search terms).
Post the reference using APA format at the top of your response and then provide a BRIEF 1 paragraph summary of the study.
Identify the null hypothesis and alternative hypotheses (you will need to write the null in your own words as this is not provided in most research reports).
Address the type of data required and whether assumptions of the test were met.
In order to do this, you will need to state:
What was the Dependent Variable (DV) and at what level was it measured?
What was the Independent Variable (IV) and at what level was it measured?
You will then compare this to the type of data required and whether assumptions of the test were met.
Note any post hoc tests that were mentioned.
