A quantitative research study requires a numerical measure on the dependent variable. A quantitative measure is based on a scale. For example, say you are interested in measuring creativity of students. Search the internet, Google Scholar, journal articles, and/or the library to find an instrument that best matches your topic. For example, if your topic was creativity, you may want to try key terms such as; creativity measure, creativity scale, creativity instrument, etc. Read about the instrument and make sure it is a good fit.
Then using the what you learned in the course, write a research question and testable null hypothesis that may be considered for your study. Include the following information in your post: (Research Question, Null hypothesis, Independent variable, Dependent variable, Quantitative Instrument, Participants, Statistical test, the reason for conducting the study and how it would glorify our Lord Jesus Christ).
Research Question: Do high school students who participate in a First Robotic Lego League club tend to be better at creative problem solving than students who do not participate in a Robotic Lego League club?
Null Hypothesis: There is no difference in creative problem-solving scores of high school students who participate in a First Robotic Lego League club and those who do not participate in a First Robotic Lego League club.
Independent variable: First Robotic Lego League club participation
Dependent variable: Creative problem solving scores
Instrument (Scale): Creativity?and Problem-Solving Aptitude Test
Participants: Middle school students in the Fairfax Country School System
Statistical Test: Independent Samples t-test
Why would you like to conduct this study? I am a science teacher in Fairfax County. Over the last few years I have sponsored the First Robotic Lego League club at my school. When interacting with my club students, I have observed that they are willing to spend hours to solve a problems related to their robotics challenge. This hands-on science experience appears to build confidence, grow their knowledge about science, and appears to develop creative problem solving. Some of my students solutions have amazed me. For example, one of the robotic competitions challenges required that the robot etc
How would your study glorify our Lord Jesus Christ (include scripture)? In the beginning God created, thus God is creative. The bible states in Genesis 1:27 (NIV), So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. I believe that God made us after His own image and place in us all the attribute of creativity. Creativity is etc
