FIT1006 ASSIGNMENT 2: DATA ANALYSIS
Purpose In Assignment 1, we collected a dataset within the class. This task involves
analysing that dataset.
Assessed Unit Learning Outcomes:
1. Perform and justify the use of appropriate descriptive and inferential
statistical analyses such as standard deviation, t-tests, and Pearson's
correlation coefficients
2. Communicate the results of statistical analysis effectively and accurately
3. Create graphics and tables for effective communication of the results of
data analysis
4. Analyse the factors that make statistics reliable, credible and trustworthy
Your task You will write a written report of up to 2000 words, which will cover matters
including:
• Visualising the data in question.
• Hypothesis testing.
• Critically assessing the investigation that you have conducted.
Value 45% of your total marks for the unit
Word Limit 2000 words (excluding references and charts)
Due Date Friday 05th of May 2023, 11:55 pm
Submission • Via Moodle Assignment Submission.

Assessment
Criteria
The assessment criteria is as given in Annex A.
Late Penalties • If you are late, then you lose 5% of the available marks for the assignment
for each calendar day (or part of calendar day) you are late.
• If you are 7 or more days late, then you will obtain a mark of zero for this
assignment. It is possible to obtain an extension to this assignment
deadline by way of the special consideration procedure, but only if you
have extenuating circumstances.

A. Introduction
In Assignment 1, we collected a dataset within the class. This task involves analysing that
dataset. You will write a written report of up to 2000 words, which will cover matters
including:
1. Visualising the data in question.
2. Hypothesis testing.
3. Critically assessing the investigation that you have conducted.
This assignment is worth 45% of the overall mark for FIT1006.
B. When is my assessment due?
Your assessment is due on Friday the 5th of May 2023 at 11:55pm. If you are late, then
you lose 5% of the available marks for the assignment for each calendar day (or part of
calendar day) you are late. If you are 7 or more days late, then you will obtain a mark of
zero for this assignment. It is possible to obtain an extension to this assignment deadline
by way of the special consideration procedure, but only if you have extenuating
circumstances.
C. What am I required to do?
You are required to identify an issue or question related to the data and conduct an
statistical investigation. For this investigation you should prepare a written report of up
to 2000 words (excluding references and images). This report should be in three parts:
A. Data visualisation and Descriptive Statistics. You should identify a topic of
concern and perform descriptive analysis using (i) appropriate summary
statistics and (ii) visualisations of the data using appropriate charts. Your written
text should explain these statistics and visualisations, including how they relate
B. Hypothesis testing. You should specify (i) at least one hypothesis in respect of
your topic of concern (ii) at least one null hypothesis and (iii) conduct an
evaluation of the said hypothesis using inferential statistics (including how the
test was chosen, whether any data was excluded, and any other design decisions
that you took). You must use the dataset we have collected, and you may use
additional datasets that you can find.
C. Critical Assessment. You should write a critical reflection as part of your report.
This will discuss the strengths and limitations of your statistical study, and how
you might build upon it in the future.
For this assignment, we will give you a individual dataset, which you must use. This
will be the data collected by the class, however you will be given only a random subset
ZipFile on Moodle, and use the file associated with your student ID.
Important: A marking rubric is provided in Annex A. Please consider this carefully, as
it is a guide to how you will be assessed and the weighting for each criterion.
D. What support will I be given with this assignment?
This is an important assignment and we will provide support to assist with this. In
particular, we will provide:
• Online material where you will be supported in learning the course.
Page 3 of 6
• Tutorials to develop your understanding of implementing the relevant statistical
methods.
• Individual consultations to review a draft of your assignment (15 minute
appointments: bring a draft, a calendar will be published on Moodle).
1. Does the word count include diagrams and references.
The word count excludes references and diagrams. However, you are encouraged to
present a focussed and clear report. 25% of the marks are awarded for quality of
communication.
2. If I write a report that is less than 2000 words, will I receive a lower mark?
No. You are encouraged to write in a concise and focussed manner. 2000 words is a limit,
not a target.
3. What is the difference between a ‘topic of concern’ and a hypothesis?
A topic of concern is a wider area of investigation, whilst a hypothesis is directly testable
following an inferential statistical method (e.g. a t-test or an ANOVA).
4. Must I obtain a statistically significant result?
No. The idea is that you conduct an effective investigation, rather than obtain a particular
result. You are marked on completing the process correctly and how clearly you
communicate the outcome, as well as you critical reflection on the process and conduct of
the experiment.
5. May I reuse material from Assignment 1 in this written report?
You may not resubmit text from your written commentary in Assignment 1 for this
assignment. Nor may you reuse any material from any other course.
6. What happens if I write a report that is longer than 2000 words
If an assignment is overlength, then your marker has the right to stop reading (and
marking) at 2000 words. Furthermore, it is likely you will be penalised in Criterion 4
(which relates to quality of communication).
7. May I use Generative AI?
Chat GPT is not going to help you with this assignment, but I have not expressly banned
it.
