Statistics and Lies

“There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.” – Mark Twain.

A mid-twentieth century book: Lessons on How to Lie with Statistics still holds true. 2020 was a year filled with lies and obfuscation which spread like wildfire on social media. What is real? What is fake?

Module 1 Discussion Week 1 ResourcesWithout learning to think statistically, we’ll never know when people are bending the truth (2020)3 Ways to Lie with Statistics (2021)How To Lie With Statistics (2020)Griggs: Chaos, butterflies, and numbers that lie (2021)

Week 1 Discussion Post

Based on the resources provided or your research, share how studying statistics, data analysis, and decision-making can provide a foundation for detecting lies or poorly supported “facts.” Consider a career/professional application rather than a personal one. (Research Support Required)

This post should be 2 paragraphs in length (150-200 words). Since you are engaging in research, be sure to cite in the body of the post and add a reference list in APA format. NOTE: failure to use research with accompanying in-text citations to support content will result in reduced scoring “Level 2-Developing” on the grading rubric.

WEEK 1 INTERACTIVE RESPONSES TO CLASSMATES

1st Interactive Response:

·         Analyze one student’s application and compare/contrast it to your post.

2nd Interactive Response:

·         Analyze another student’s coverage of lies or poorly supported “facts” and compare/contrast it to your post.

Each reply should be one paragraph in length (or about 75 words) and must be substantive. Do not simply say “I agree” or “That is great”; specify why and be detailed in your explanation. You may use research in your responses, but it is not required.

Bias, Statistics and News

You have seen poll results and heard about statistics reported in the news. And there have been instances when two different groups cover the same statistics/data with different results or interpretations. Is one group lying?

Based on the resources provided and internet research, find an example of two different sources promoting opposite points of view when reporting on the same statistics. Analyze how the arguments are laid out. Approach it scientifically rather than allowing bias to guide your interpretation. Provide hyperlinks to both sources. (Research Support Required)

This post should be 2 paragraphs in length (150-200 words). Since you are engaging in research, be sure to cite in the body of the post and add a reference list in APA format. NOTE: failure to use research with accompanying in-text citations to support content will result in reduced scoring “Level 2-Developing” on the grading rubric.

WEEK 2 INTERACTIVE RESPONSES TO CLASSMATES1st Interactive Response:

·         Analyze one student’s analysis and point out perceived bias that you see in the post.

2nd Interactive Response:

·         Analyze another student’s coverage and share how your bias makes you more prone to believe one point of view over another.

Each reply should be one paragraph in length (or about 75 words) and must be substantive. Do not simply say “I agree” or “That is great”; specify why and be detailed in your explanation. You may use research in your responses, but it is not required.

In your own words, respond to the discussion and comments of classmates. Grades will be based on effectual, concise, and interactive feedback. The excessive use of quotes will directly impact performance since this indicates a lack of comprehension and shows that you may not have mastered the concepts.

Why a discussion post and reply each week? Planning and time management are invaluable skills for business professionals who juggle jobs, personal lives, and other endeavors. Coming to terms with balancing priorities in an academic setting is a transferable skill to the workplace. Making optimum decisions about scheduling can help you excel along the career path.

I need a response or feedback on the below Answer:

Question: Throughout your program, you have engaged with a variety of leadership theories, models, and concepts. As you embark on implementing your capstone, which theory, model, or concept has been the most helpful, and why? Did this change from your initial brainstorming or outline?

Answer: Throughout this Leadership program I’ve used a few theories, models and concepts. Moving forward with this capstone I have used the transformational theory and situational theory. Transformational Theory of leadership, also called “the management theory,” studies leadership as a system of rewards and penalties. It views effective leadership as results-focused and hierarchical. Transactional leaders prioritize order and structure over creativity (2021). With this theory I will be see how the bridge program help students to transition into the Organizational Program which ultimately will be very helpful to determine how much the program transform the lives of the students, because they don’t have the original 60 credit hours. The Situational theory of leadership does not relate to a certain type of leader or claim that any one style is best (2021). Instead, situational theory argues that the best kind of leader is one who is able to adapt his or her style based on the situation. They may respond to a situation by commanding, coaching, persuading, participating, delegating or however they think is necessary (2010). Situational leaders are defined by their flexibility, so this will in return help instructors and professors in the program adapt to the students learning style which based on how they learn. Nothing has change from my initial brainstorming from the beginning.

Data measurement is an important aspect of data analytics. Identifying trends in key attributes of data is a fundamental measurement for various aspects in business data and an important skill for business professionals. In this scenario, you are a business consultant trainee assigned to work with your first client, a superstore. The superstore is looking to see if there are specific trends that could be identified to help them improve their operations and sales and grow their business. You will report to your company’s vice president of operations. Periodically, you will be expected to apply your training and submit a deliverable to the vice president.

The superstore has provided you with a data set, Superstore Excel Workbook, that contains data about orders over a span of three to four years. They have asked you to calculate measures of central tendency of their data using the mean, mode, and median for the following attributes: sales, quantity, discount, and profit. This will provide you with a snapshot of the data to begin your analysis. As a business consultant, you need to be able to look at data and understand what it presents for analysis.

You will first explain the data and its attributes in a short report. Once you have created a table and calculated the central tendency, you will produce visual representations for the superstore to effectively and efficiently gain helpful insights into their data and its attributes. To accomplish this task, you will create charts to present the descriptive analysis you performed. You will continue to delve further into your analysis for this superstore throughout the course.

Prompt

For this assignment, calculate the central tendency of the superstore data set using the mean, median, and mode. You will also create multiple charts to present the descriptive analysis you performed.

  1. Explain the data and its key attributes.
  2. Create a table to represent the central tendency: mean, median, and mode for each attribute.
  3. Create multiple charts to represent the key attributes of the data.

Guidelines for Submission

  • Superstore Excel Workbook: Submit the Excel workbook. This should include two worksheets: Descriptive_Stats and Basic_Charts.
  • Short report: Submit a Word document using double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins. This assignment should be 1 to 2 pages in length. If references are included, they should be cited in APA format. Consult the Shapiro Library APA Style Guide for more information on citations.
