Finding a Research Study with Inferential Statistics

Some of your business courses will require that you find a quantitative research study that uses inferential statistics. Use Google Scholar or Academic Search Premier for your searching (business databases aren't going to be helpful for this assignment).

Make sure you access Google Scholar through the Library to see our journal holdings, and limit your results in Academic Search Premier to peer-viewed. Access both databases by clicking the Article Databases button on the Library homepage.

You'll want to add any of the following terms to your search: p-values or p values, "confidence interval" or "inferential statistics" 

Review this video by my colleague, Lizzy Tegeler, for a similar economics assignment (start the video at 57 seconds).
