Discussion: Scholar-practitioners must present accurate and precise information, a scholar- practitioner should not be creating data or eliminating data from the research they do. The authors of the research mentioned that in their research they found statistically significant results and proclaim their research a meaningful contribution to literature. The authors wrote in the footnote of the research that they “relax” the alpha level to .10. Frankfort-Nachmias & Leon- Guerrero (2015) described this level as: “ Alpha (α) The level of probability at which the null hypothesis is rejected. It is customary to set alpha at the .05, .01, or .001 level” (p.274). The authors of the research gave an alpha level higher than normal which normal is approximately . 05, .01, or .001. The higher the alpha level the higher the probability to make a Type 1 error. This error means that even if the null hypothesis is correct there would be a probability that it would be denied; in this case, there is a 10% probability that the null hypothesis would be denied even

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
