Specifically, the following critical elements in parenthesis must be addressed:
(Introduction) to the problem:
Provide a concise (description of the scenario) that you will be analyzing. The following questions might help you describe the scenario:
What is the type of organization identified in the scenario? What is the organization’s history and problem identified in the scenario?
II. Create an (analysis plan) to guide your analysis and decision making: In this section you will review the data set to inform the statistical method that will be used. To inform your responses in this section, calculate the central tendency of the dependent variable, develop a histogram of the gift amount and develop scatterplots for the gift amount for each independent variable.
A. Identify any quantifiable (factors) that may be affecting the performance of operational processes.
B. Develop a single sentence problem statement that addresses the given (problem in the scenario) and contains quantifiable measures.
C. Propose a (strategy) that addresses the problem of the organization in the given case study.
III. Identify (statistical methods) to collect data:
A. Identify the appropriate (statistical methods) that you will use to perform your analysis. What are your statistical assumptions concerning the data that led you to selecting the methods? In other words, why did you select this method for statistical analysis?
B. (Justify) why you chose these methods to analyze the data. Be sure to include how these methods will help predict the use of the data in driving decisions using cited evidence.
IV. (Data-Driven Decisions) to determine the appropriate decision for the identified problem:
A. Outline the (process) needed to utilize your statistical analysis to reach a decision regarding the given problem.
B. Explain how (data mining) is used to develop a solution to the case. In your response, consider the concepts of metadata.
C. Explain if the problem is a (structured or unstructured problem).
D. Assess how the (variables) have potential for answering the problem.
V. (Recommend operational improvements) to stakeholders after you have completed the calculations:
A. Demonstrate a (data-driven calculation) that addresses the given problem statement.
B. (Summarize) results of the analysis plan. In your response, be sure to explain the validity of the model solution.
