IRP project

Help me study for my Statistics class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.

1 Draft IRP

Summary:

In the Independent Research Project (IRP), students conduct an analysis project using SAS primarily and Excel as needed to analyze real-world data.

  • In the first assignment (IRP Research Question and Data Set), you identified the data set you wanted to use, developed a research question, and identified a statistical question that could be answered analytically.
  • In this assignment, you will create and submit a business memo (template attached) that clearly communicates your analysis of the data set you identified in the previous assignment. When you submit this draft of your IRP, you will get feedback from your classmates and your instructor. You should use this feedback to improve your IRP.
  • In later assignments (IRP Memorandum, IRP Presentation, Presentation Questions Reply), you will submit the final version of your IRP, create and submit a PowerPoint presentation that summarizes your IRP, present your analysis via a recorded video presentation, and answer questions about your presentation.

2 IRP Presentation

Upload your IRP PowerPoint presentation to this assignment.

You only have four minutes, so be concise and careful with your language.

Use the PowerPoint Narration tool for your slides, even if you present face to face, it is good practice.

3 IRP Memorandum

In this Independent Research Project (IRP), students provide a business decision recommendation using SAS primarily and Excel as needed to obtain real world data. The student will create and submit a business report that clearly communicates a recommendation based on their analysis of the data set that includes an analysis of different courses of action using weighted factors. The students will also create a Power Point presentation that summarizes their IRP and present their analysis live, via video-teleconference or as a recorded video presentation. The student will also answer questions about their presentation.
