Unit 4 Writing Assignment
Instructions Assignments submitted through this link will be checked using SafeAssign by Blackboard. Your work will not be used for any purpose other than

preventing plagiarism in the University. Ownership of the intellectual property contained in your written work will not be transferred to any third party. Please

submit your paper as a Word Document. If you have the 2010 version of Word, please save your paper in a previous version (Word 97-2003 document) as Safe Assign may not

accept the most recent version.

The requirements for this assignment are to:
Create a thesis statement with three reasons that underlie your thesis.
Write a 5 paragraph essay that encompasses and explains your thesis statement, and your three supporting reasons.
Begin to think about how this paper will be transformed into your final paper.
Students:  Be sure to read the criteria, by which your paper/project will be evaluated, before you write, and again after you write.  Refer to the rubric document

in Course Information.
For this assignment you will choose one of the applied ethics topics that we will be covering in this course (sexual ethics, abortion, capital punishment, war &

terrorism, and animal rights), and begin to write the framework for your final paper.  The framework will consist of 5 paragraphs; an introduction, three body

paragraphs, and a final paragraph.
Paragraph 1:  In the first paragraph you should provide a brief introduction to the issue that allows the reader to understand the topic and where you will be

going with the discussion.  The first paragraph should contain a one sentence thesis statement.  A thesis statement should contain your moral contention and three

reasons why you hold that view. For examples of what is expected, please see the Thesis Statement Guide above in Readings and Resources. Your thesis should resemble

example number 3 or 4 in the guide. The thesis statement is a very important aspect of this assignment and will constitute a good portion of the grade.
Paragraphs 2, 3, and 4:  Here you will explain the three reasons why you hold the ethical or moral opinion that you do. These paragraphs should encompass the body

of your essay, and will contain one reason per paragraph. Each paragraph should start by stating the reason that you will discuss and then explain that reason in

further detail using any sources, data, or examples that are pertinent to backing up your opinion with facts.
Paragraph 5:  Conclude your essay by very briefly reviewing the three reasons that you have used to demonstrate the strength of your opinion and why they show the

issue is ethically significant. Your final paragraph should also contain a paraphrased restatement of your thesis.
This assignment is the first part of a three part process that will lead to a completed final essay in unit 8. The second element of this assignment will come in

units 5, 6, and 7 and will require you to analyze your ethical question using three of the ethical theories we have discussed in the course, and choose which system

you believe works best to back up your initial thesis statement from unit 4. Please go ahead and read the instructions for the Final Paper before starting this

project. The third element will be completing the final paper in unit 8. The Final Paper will be five to seven pages, so please keep that in mind when developing your

topic. You must choose a topic that you can cover adequately within the required page length. After you choose a topic, go to the unit that corresponds to your topic

choice and begin to use the resources in those weeks to gather information for your paper.

The Unit 1 thesis statement paper must be 375 to 500 words in length (excluding title and reference pages), double spaced, and formatted according to APA style,

using Times new Roman type and size 12 Font. You must use at least two scholarly resources to support your claims. Cite your sources within the text of your paper and

on the reference page. For information regarding APA, please visit this tutorial from the American Psychological Association or refer to the Post University APA Style

Guide.

Change Prejudice or Stereotyping

Change Prejudice or Stereotyping

Assignment: Can You Use Persuasion or Social Influence to Change Prejudice or Stereotyping?

Given all you know about how to change people at this point in the course, can you apply your knowledge to tackle one of the most important and difficult problems

in society? The goal of this final Application Assignment is for you to think of creative new ways to use social influence and persuasion processes to change the

negative attitudes, beliefs, and behavior that that underlie intergroup conflict.
To prepare for this assignment:
•    Review Chapters 4, 5, 9 and 11 in the course text, and think about the various ways that people are motivated to change their behaviors, attitudes, beliefs,

etc.
•    Then think about ways of using a foot-in-the-door and door-in-the-face strategy to facilitate positive behavior toward a disliked group.
•    Consider what behavior you would like to encourage and the steps necessary to initiate change.
•    Now consider how you might use cognitive dissonance to change negative attitudes towards a stigmatized group. Then think about using the induced compliance

and/or justification of effort procedure strategies to motive change.
•    Lastly, create and describe a persuasive message to promote appreciation of multicultural diversity. Think about the audience, the use of central route to

persuasion, and three strong arguments you could use to promote appreciation of diversity.

The assignment (1 page): APA style format, No Plagiarism and must be cited with
references and according course rubric. Thank you

(1)Create and describe a foot-in-the-door or door-in-the-face strategy that can facilitate a positive behavior toward a disliked group. After you identify the

group and the target behavior, explain whom you would try to change and what steps would be necessary to initiate commitment or reciprocity processes. Do you think

this would lead to long-term change? Why or why not?
(2)Use cognitive dissonance to change negative attitudes towards a stigmatized group. First identify and briefly describe the stigmatized group and the negative

attitudes that your audience holds toward them. Then, using either an induced compliance or justification of effort procedure, explain how you would get your target

audience to commit a discrepant act that would cause dissonance. Then explain how you would provide the means to reduce dissonance by changing their attitudes toward

the stigmatized group.
(3)Create and describe a persuasive message designed to promote the appreciation of multicultural diversity. Identify the audience and, in order to use the central

route to persuasion, explain how you would motivate them and provide the ability to process your message. Identify three strong arguments you would use to persuade

them to appreciate multicultural diversity. Finally, assuming some people in the audience may not be motivated or have the ability to process the arguments, describe a

positive source cue that you would include to influence these audience members through the peripheral route.
Support your Application Assignment with specific references to all resources used in its preparation.

multivariate statistical analysis

multivariate statistical analysis

Questions 5, 7, 10, 11, 12 13 14

1.    Define multivariate statistical analysis.
Multivariate analysis refers to a set of methods that simultaneously analyze the relationship between related variables. A series of multivariate analysis performed

separately for each feature can lead to erroneous interpretations given to the correlation or interdependence of these variables is ignored.

2.    What is the variate in multivariate?  What is an example of a variate in multiple regression and in factor analysis?
“The variate is a mathematical way in which a set of variables can be represented with one equation. Variates are formed as a linear combination of variables, each

contributing to the overall meaning of the variate based upon an empirically derived weight” (p.583), According to Janet Hus, President of Sanrio Consumer tend to

purchase products that provide emotional connection. A sample of variate is nostalgia products. Nostalgia products can be measured in multiples variables in order to

determine if variables are related to reduce the number of factors that represent that variate.

3.    What is the distinction between dependence methods and interdependence methods?
Dependence methods assume that the variables analyzed are divided into two groups: the dependent variables and independent variables. The aim is to determine whether

the set of independent variables affecting all variables dependent and how. Interdependence methods do not distinguish between dependent and independent variables and

the objective is to identify which variables are related, how they are and why

4.    What is the GLM?  How can multiple regression and n-way ANOVA be described as GLM approaches?
The general linear model (GLM) is a variant of multivariate dependence techniques. GLM is used to model based on the effect of the fluctuations of the average

dependent variable process and the relation to the different variables “Fluctuations can come in the form of group means that differ from the overall mean as in ANOVA

or in the form of a significant slope coefficient as in regression”.(Zikmund, 2013, p.586)

5.    What are the steps in interpreting a multiple regression analysis result?  Can the same steps be used to interpret a univariate ANOVA model?

6.    A researcher dismisses a regression result because the model R2 was under 0.70.  Do you think this was necessarily wise?  Explain.
After examining R2 no cutoffs values exists. If the researcher was more interested in predicting than explain then the absolute value is important; however given that

this case does not specify the purpose of the researcher is not possibletodetermine whether or not to discard the results of the regression

7.    Return to the simple example of regression results for the toy company presented in the chapter.   Since the data come equally from Europe and Canada, does

this represent a potential source of variation that is not accounted for in the researcher’s model?  How could the researcher examine whether or not sales may be

dependent upon country?

Multiple regressions can be done by using independent variables and

a dummy variablecan be used to represent Canada

and Europe by using 0 and 1 respectively variable.

8.    What is a factor loading?
A factor loading indicate the strength of the correlated factors and is used to identify factors that explain a variety of results in different tests. For example,

intelligence research found that people who get a high score on a test of verbal ability also performs well on tests requiring verbal skills

9.    How does factor analysis allow for data reduction?

Factor analysis allow for data reduction by reducing the number of variables and detecting the relationship between variables to classify them.  Therefore, factor

analysis is applied as a data reduction or structure detection method

10.    How is the number of factors decided in most EFA programs?

11.    What is multi-dimensional scaling?  When might a researcher use this technique?

12.    What is cluster analysis?  When might a researcher use this technique?

13.    Name at least two multivariate techniques that can be useful in constructing perceptual maps.

14.    A researcher uses multiple regression to predict a client’s sales volume based on gross domestic product, personal income, disposable personal income,

unemployment, and the consumer price index. What problems might be anticipated with this multiple regression model?

Distributive Justice

Distributive Justice

Paper instructions:
The goal of the Session Long Project is to identify and evaluate the ethical principles used in resolving ethical dilemmas, and to apply the principles to specific

ethical issues that may have professional, sociological, economic, legal or political implications.

Often times a patient needs a lot of resources prior to being discharged from the hospital. Some organizations use discharge planners or case managers to aid in

acquiring these resources. The topic of this SLP is about Jenna, a young woman who could not be discharged home until the issue of resources to care for her was

resolved. This story demonstrates that resource allocation decision making is inherently complex, a process that is dynamic, multidimensional, and iterative. After

reading the article, “The relational nature of case manager resource allocation decision making: An illustrated case” by Fraser, Estabrooks, and Strang and doing

additional research, please respond to the questions listed below:

1.Provide a brief summary of Jenna’s case. What was her medical condition? What was her prognosis? Why was it important for her to go home? Did she get to go home?

If so, how did that impact her recovery?
2.What were the resources that Jenna needed to go home? What barriers did her case manager encounter in acquiring these resources?
3.Discuss the theory of relational ethics as it applies to this case. What is it? How does it impact the allocation of resources?  Think about your own discipline

of study, how does this theory apply to acquiring scare resources? Provide an example.
4.Based on what you have read about this case and resource allocation, do you agree with the statement “that resource allocation decision making is inherently

complex, a process that is dynamic, multidimensional, and iterative”? Why or why not? What are your views on the fairness of the process? Was it done in a fair manner

in this case? Did Jenna get preferential treatment because of her case manager? If there was no one advocating for her, what do you think the outcome would have been?

1.You will be expected to provide a scholarly basis for your response.
2.Your opinions must be justified with evidence from the literature.
3.References should be cited properly in the text of your essay (either in parentheses or as footnotes), as well as at the end.
4.Several (3-5) scholarly references should be cited for this assignment.
5.Please limit your response to 3 pages maximum, not including title and reference pages.
6.Be sure to apply critical thinking skills to your assignment write-up.
