WITHIN GROUPS 5257.407 35 150.497 TOTAL 6012.400 39 RQ: Does marital status (IV) affect the number of hours an individual works per week (DV)? Ho: There is no difference in marital status and number of hours worked per week. Ha: At least one mean is different than the others. Research Design: A quasi-experimental research design would be the best fit for this research question. In a quasi-experimental design the researcher is interested in the independent variable that cannot be randomly assigned. In this case, the independent variable is “marital status,” a variable that cannot be randomly assigned. (Handley, Lyles, etc., 2018).

    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.
