The dean has already collected data on four variables: 1) sex, 2) grade point average (GPA), 3) GRE score, and 4) graduate degree completion frequency. Your job is to develop a proposed analysis to assist the dean to make an informed decision regarding the future use of the GRE.
Discuss the assumptions of each test. No data, calculations, or actual statistical results are required to be presented. Provide information that shows your understanding of the different types of analyses, as well as possible outcomes of the analyses. In addition, you have to include in your discussion the possible conclusions based on the possible results: rejecting the null and not rejecting the null.
Corresponding null and alternative hypotheses.
Type of statistical analysis to be employed to determine the significance.
Assumptions of each test.
Explanations of potential outcomes identifying both non-significant and significant relationships as related to both null and alternative hypotheses. Note that no data, calculations, or results are needed.
Recommendations based on non-significant and significant findings.
The four types of research questions are:
A relationship research question involving GPA and GRE scores.
A relationship research question involving sex, GPA, and GRE scores.
An effect research question involving sex and GRE scores.
An effect research question involving sex, GRE score, and degree completion frequency.
Finally, complete your analysis plan with a written discussion of your potential outcomes and recommendations for the dean based on your findings.
In addition to the Knowledge Argument, Jackson utilizes the Modal Argument and the “What is it Like” Argument (already discussed above) to further prove his conclusion. For the Modal Argument, Jackson relies on the principle that “no amount of physical information about another logically entails that he or she is conscious or feels anything at all” (Jackson). Physicalists and qualia believers alike can agree that there is a possibility of a world identical to ours in every physical respect but different in that the organisms that occupy this identical world have no mental capacity or life at all. As there is something about us that gives us mental capacity that they lack, physicalism must be false because there is more to us than the purely physical. Although the Modal Argument and the What it is Like Argument are substantial, the depth of Jackson’s argument against physicalism primarily relies on the Knowledge Argument. In order to prevent confusion, Jackson clarifies three things regarding the Knowledge Argument and Mary. First, the argument does not claim that you cannot imagine what it is like to see red. Thus, the argument does not rely on the position that Mary cannot imagine what it is like to see red, but that Mary cannot truly know what it is like to see red until she has seen red. She can imagine endlessly, but the knowledge is not there. Jackson claims that “imagination is a faculty that those who lack knowledge need to fall back on” (Jackson). Second, Jackson argues that Mary’s learning of the experience of seeing the color red did not rely on logical inferences. After leaving the black and white room and seeing the color red, Mary does not claim that she could have had knowledge of seeing the color red without leaving the room if she could have used more logical inferences while in the room. Third, Jackson reiterates that Mary lacked information about the experience of others. Jackson refers to the lack of information as a problem for physicalists because Mary realizes her conception of others’ mental life has been “impoverished” through her existence. Although she knew the physical facts the entire time, she did not have all the information regarding their experiences. Therefore, physicalism is compromised even further. There are some philosophers who do not necessarily align with Jackson’s perspective. David Lewis has the strongest objection to Jackson’s qualia position. Lewis shapes his objection to Jackson using the Ability Hypothesis and the Hypothesis of Phenomenal Information. Lewis argues that Mary leaves the black and white roo>GET ANSWER
