This week's lab highlights the use of graphics, distributions, and tables to summarize and interpret data.
You should follow the directions below to find an academic article from the Chamberlain library and then use that to describe the graphs and tables included. Further, you will describe other ways that the same data could be presented.
The deliverable is a Word document with your answers to the questions posed below based on the article you find.
Internet access to read articles

Step 3: In the Advanced Search (Figure 2 below) type a one or two word description of an area of interest. For example, you could type "gluten" or "high blood pressure". In addition, you will want to check the box for "full text", check the box for "peer reviewed", and use the Publication Date dropdown box to select "Last 12 months". In the lower right box for "languages", be sure to click on "English". Then click the green button "Search".

Step 4: Select one of the articles found through the search and be sure that a frequency distribution is shown somewhere in the article. If possible, use "full text - PDF" option to glance through it. A frequency distribution will have numeric classes such as 0-9, 10-19, 20-29 and so on. It will not have classes such as female and male. Be sure the classes are numeric. The frequency may be presented as a table or a graph; either is fine.
Step 5: Begin your lab by copying and pasting or posting a screen shot of your frequency distribution at the top of your Word document. Then type answers to the following questions underneath the picture of your frequency distribution:
What search term(s) did you use and why did you decide to use that search term? Include how many articles were found and the full APA citation of the article you are using for this lab.
What data are shown in the frequency distribution and why might it be of interest? Include the size of the classes, noting if they are of a consistent size or not. Also include a conclusion that could be made from the frequency distribution. (1 to 2 paragraphs)
How else might these data have been displayed? Discuss pros and cons of 2 other presentation options, such as tables or different graphical displays (1 to 2 paragraphs)
