NORTHCENTRAL UNIVERSITYASSIGNMENT COVER SHEETChad, Hello. Each score for each question receives a grade based upon the scoring system shown below. Added together they yield the total score for the question (80% and above is passing for each question). You had 1 question -question 3. Your score is 74. See my grading summary for question 3 below in the grading tables belowand review my many detailed comments inside your exam.One major concern was that variables in your design (number of variables and which one is the dependent variable) change at different points. Understanding of some key aspects of research design as it relates to your study, are not accurate. There were other concerns that are also discussed in my detailed feedback below, inside the exam. With some help from a research design specialist and a little more research concerning a specific related theory, I believe you can pass this question. Please let me know of any questions. Sincerely,Dr. Karl Lloyd 412-773-0527
