Walden University Multiple Regression Analysis

For this Assignment, you will continue your practice as a critical consumer of research. You will critically evaluate a scholarly article related to multiple regression.

To prepare for this Assignment:

Use the Course Guide and Assignment Help found in this week’s

  • Learning Resources
  • and search for a quantitative article that includes multiple regression testing. Also, you can use as guide the Research Design Alignment Table located in this week’s Learning Resources.

    For this Assignment:

    Write a 3- to 5-paragraphs critique of the article (2 to 3 pages). In your critique, include responses to the following:

  • Why did the authors use multiple regression?
  • Do you think it’s the most appropriate choice? Why or why not?

    Did the authors display the data?

    Do the results stand alone? Why or why not?

    Did the authors report effect size? If yes, is this meaningful?

  • Use proper APA format, citations, and referencing.
  • Week 9: Multiple Regression
  • Last week you explored the predictive nature of bivariate, simple linear regression. As you found out, and its name implies, bivariate regression only uses one predictor variable. As social scientists, we frequently have questions that require the use of multiple predictor variables. Moreover, we often want to include control variables (i.e., workforce experience, knowledge, education, etc.) in our model. Multiple regression allows the researcher to build on bivariate regression by including all of the important predictor and control variables in the same model. This, in turn, assists in reducing error and provides a better explanation of the complex social world.

  • In this week, you will examine multiple regression. In your examination, you will construct research questions, evaluate research design, and analyze results related to multiple regression.
  • Learning Objectives
  • Students will:

    Construct research questions

    Evaluate research design through research questions

    Analyze multiple regression

    Analyze measures multiple regression

    Evaluate significance of multiple regression

    Analyze results for multiple regression testing

    Analyze assumptions of correlation and bivariate regression (assessed in Week 10)

  • Analyze implications for social change (assessed in Week 10)
  • Evaluate research related to correlation and bivariate regression
