Introduction: Problem, Significance, & Purpose Statement of the problem, significance, purpose, questions/hypotheses, or definitions of constructs and variables are omitted or inappropriate. Although a research issue is identified, the statement is too broad or the description fails to establish the importance of the problem area. The research purpose, questions, hypotheses, or definitions of constructs and variables are poorly formed, ambiguous, or not logically connected to the description of the problem. Connections to the literature are unclear or debatable. Identifies a relevant research issue. Research questions are succinctly stated, connected to the research issue, and supported by the literature. Constructs and variables have been identified and described. Connections are established with the literature. Presents a significant research problem related to the field of public health. Articulates clear, reasonable research questions given the purpose, design, and methods of the proposed study. All constructs and variables have been appropriately defined. Propositions are clearly supported from the research and theoretical literature. All elements are mutually supportive. Page 1 of 3

Appropriate and important limitations and assumptions have been clearly stated. Methods: Context, Population, & Sampling The context, population, or sample is not identified or described. The sampling strategy is inappropriate for the research questions. The description of the context, population, or sampling strategy is confusing, lacks relevance to the purpose, is incomplete, or fails to identify specific quantitative or qualitative details. The context, population, and sampling strategy is adequately identified and described. The size of the population, sample, and comparison groups is identified. The description of the context and population is meaningful, including both quantitative and qualitative description.

HLTH 511 R ESEARCH P ROJECT I NSTRUCTIONS The purpose of the research project is to develop and/or improve your ability to design research. If you have a particular research interest then this course might serve as an opportunity to begin developing ideas for that research. If you do not have a particular research interest, you will choose another topic and either locate some existing data or create your own data. The main objectives of this assignment are related to developing your ability to correctly integrate and present the components of research; not actually conduct research. This does not have to be an elaborate project. However, at a minimum, your project should be of a length similar to the attached Arm Span Project document. Your project will be evaluated using the attached Research Project Grading Rubric, so you should refer to it for specific guidelines. Note: Research Project components should build on all previous research components and include any revisions suggested by the instructor. Important: To earn a grade, you must submit an SPSS .sav file containing the raw data used for the report. The variables must be named logically in order so that the instructor is able to replicate the analyses described in the report. Proposal Create a research proposal for your project which includes the following: o Proposed Topic o Proposed Title o Proposed Research Question (Restrict to one question) o Proposed Data Source (this can be real or fabricated data) and variables.: Independent variable Dependent variable o Proposed Statistical Methods Place your name and the course number in the header of your assignment and submit by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Sunday of Module/Week 4. Introduction Submit a draft (not a rough draft) of the introduction. Follow the guidelines in the AMA Manual of Style and the Arm Span Project. Be sure to include the type of study you propose to conduct or simulate. Include your name and course number in the header. Submit by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Sunday of Module/Week 5. Methods Following the guidelines in the AMA Manual of Style and the Arm Span Project, submit the methods section of your project by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Sunday of Module/Week 6. Include your name and course number in the header. Note: This assignment should build on the previous research component and include any revisions suggested by the instructor. Page 1 of 2

HLTH 511 Results Following the guidelines in the AMA Manual of Style and the Arm Span Project, submit your results section of the project by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Sunday of Module/Week 7. Include your name and course number in the header. Note: This assignment should build on the previous research component and include any revisions suggested by your instructor. Final submission For your final submission, integrate feedback from all previous project assignments. You should include a Discussion section at the end of the project. Follow the guidelines in the AMA Manual of Style and the Arm Span Project. All work should be properly cited and/or abbreviated. Submit by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Friday of Module/Week 8. Note: This assignment should build on all previous research components and include any revisions suggested by the instructor. Page 2 of 2

The Suitability of Arm Span as a Substitute Measurement for Height HLTH 501 David M. Barton 1
Background image of page 01
Abstract Many anthropometric equations rely on individual height. Accurate height is not obtainable when various skeletal abnormalities exist. Arm span is proposed as a possible substitute for height. Thirteen subjects’ arm span and height were measured. The Pearson R for arm span and height was 0.96 (p<0.05). Regression analysis was used to build and equation predicting height from arm span (Height = 0.8655 x Arm Span + 9.3368). Results of this study show that arm span and height are strongly correlated and arm span can be used as a reliable predictor of height. Introduction In many medical, physiological, and human performance measurements the height of human subjects is used as a predictive and/or classification variable. Equations predicting Body Mass Index, pulmonary function, caloric expenditure, and body fat percentage are just a few of the many equations using height as a predictive variable. 1 However, spinal curvature conditions such as kyphosis, scoliosis, lordosis, and kyphoscoliosis make it difficult to determine the correct height of the individual and thereby necessitating the need to identify a substitute anthropometric measurement. 2 The need for an anthropometric measurement to serve as a substitute for height has long been recognized. One possible substitute measurement is arm span, that is – the distance from the left middle finger tip to the right middle fingertip of outstretched arms parallel to the ground. This relationship is notably shown in the drawing Vitruvian Man by Leanardo da Vinci (See Figure 1.). Figure 1. Vitruvian Man by Leonard da Vinci. 2
