Edward Rooker ILRST 210 11:15-12:05 First Article Evaluation Full Citation Jim Albert, Patricia Williamson. (2001). Using model/data simulations to detect streakiness. The American Statistician, 55 (1), 41-50. Retrieved September 20, 2007, from ABI/INFORM Global database. (Document ID: 68156604). Primary Goal of Study To prove the statistical existence of “streakiness” in baseball hitting and basketball shooting data. Group Evaluated The article looks at Mark McQuire’s home run statistics from 1995-1999 and Javier Lopez’s hitting statistics in the 1998 season. Also, the study looks at the shots made by a college basketball player shooting 100 consecutive shots after 20 different practices. Who is Excluded From Study The study did not look at anyone who was not a member of a collegiate or professional sports club. Also, the study only focused on 2 sports, baseball and basketball. Altogether the study only looked at 3 athletes. Although, the study is very limited in the number of “participants” (only 3 athletes), the number of cases for each person studied is large, either looking at a large number of at-bats over years or in a season, or a large number of shots over a series of 20 practices. How did they collect the data? The data collected for Mark McGuire and Javier Lopez were statistics collected from other journal articles and studies conducted to look at the streakiness of these two athletes performance.

    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.
