Background: Kirk (2016) designed his text to help understand the four steps involved in working with data. Kirk (2016) discusses the following working with data steps: Data acquisition, data examination, data transformation, and data exploration. Each step is important and the individual steps depend on each other. As a researcher, you cannot jump from data acquisition to data exploration without completing the process of the previous steps.
Assignment: Write a research paper that contains the following:
- Discuss data acquisition
- Discuss data examination
- Discuss data transformation,
- Discuss data exploration
- Compare and contrast two of the steps
Your research paper should be at least 3 pages (800 words), double-spaced, have at least 4 APA references, and typed in an easy-to-read font in MS Word (other word processors are fine to use but save it in MS Word format). Your cover page should contain the following: Title, Student’s name, University’s name, Course name, Course number, Professor’s name, and Date.
Submit your assignment on or before the due date.
