View Full Version : Treatment of Home Aquaria Research Paper

Hey, guys! A lot of you guys helped me out with a survey I conducted a while back for my graduate Elementary Statistics course. I am actually getting my Master's in Elementary Education (currently a 6-8 music teacher). I wanted to do a study based on my hobby, though. Understand that the course is an introduction to basic statistical analysis and research, so please don't be too brutal, but I've linked a copy of my paper and research that I got from you guys. I hope you enjoy it!

Nice paper, what was your finale grade if I might ask?

For some reason I can only get through page 4 and everything after is blurry, unreadable. Do you have any idea why? So far I like it.

@steeler1: I got an A on the paper and in the course. Like I said, it is very elementary statistics... this was my class's first time doing something like this. It was fun, though. I wish I had done it differently, however (as stated in the limitations and suggestions for further research).

@ijankrom: Maybe it didn't load completely? I'm not sure. There may be a way to download it so that you don't have to read it online. I'll check and see what I can do.

edit: Yes. Once you click the link, click "File" and go to "Download." Just read it in your regular PDF reader if it won't load through google docs.

Got to finish the rest of the document, it worked fine from my work for some reason. Nice work. I especially like the results from the survey's. Who would have thought your decisions could be correlated with the pictures on the boxes. You should post this under article forum. :ssmile:

There should be a forum by itself of just polls/surveys. I think that forum would get a lot of views. thumbs2:
You should using the questions in the survey construct a thread for users in this community to answer. Does anyone know if you can have more than one poll in a thread? Curious if William (our admin) could collect information from the databases like, location, age, sex, and post. Curious how many users in AC are from Arizona?

If I wanted to poll users to see who has FW, SW or both, which forum should I use that all users would see, anyone? I don't want to misuse a forum, but clearly this type of poll under beginner freshwater won't work so well. :hmm3grin2orange: I'm going to hit William up on creating a forum specific to polls/surveys. Maybe the mods/admin can construct some really interesting polls/surveys.

It is. :22:

Thank you for your kudos!

Just curious as to what is the the percentage of respondents from the forum and other respondents you found else where?

12-14-2012, 07:50 PM
That was one of my limitations, Cliff. I didn't include a question to differentiate between the two groups. My estimate, though, is that around 80% of the participants were from this forum.

Thanks thumbs2:
