This introduction to the research problem and questions raised by the HSB dataset should help make the assignments meaningful, and it should provide a guide and some examples for your own research.

Interpretation Questions

D1.1.Compare the terms active independent variable and attribute independent variable. What are the similarities and differences?

D1.2.What kind of independent variable (active or attribute) is necessary to infer cause? Can one always infer cause from this type of independent variable? If so, why? If not, when can one infer cause and when might causal inferences be more questionable?

D1.3.What is the difference between the independent variable and the dependent variable?

D1.4.Compare and contrast associational, difference, and descriptive types of research questions.

D1.5.Write a research question and a corresponding hypothesis regarding variables of interest to you but not in the HSB dataset. Is it an associational, difference, or descriptive question?

D1.6. Using one or more of the following HSB variables, religion, mosaic pattern test, and visualization score

(a.)Write an associational question.

(b.)Write a difference question.

(c.)Write a descriptive question.

Part 2
Integrate Faith & Learning using 500 words
integrate the scriptures in all assignments, including the discussion board. Biblical integration is not just tagging bible verses in your work. Instead, it applies the scriptures to the concepts or discussions for the week.

We have this requirement because, as you know, we are a Christian institution, and we show our biblical worldview in all we do. Additionally, one of our learning outcomes is biblical integration, and we apply scriptures to meet our learning outcome.

We want to bring to your attention two resources listed below that you could find helpful for biblical integration.

Journal of Biblical Integration in Business (JBIB)

Christian Business Academy Review (CBAR)

Both journals are listed in Cabell’s Directory of Publishing Opportunities in Management and indexed by EBSCO host Business Source International, the Christian Periodical Index, and Google Scholar.
