Review the critical elements that must be addressed in the final project. Use this worksheet to
create Milestone Three. A hypothesis is a position about research outcomes. In this assignment,
you will describe two hypotheses associated with your research scenario.
Points to consider:
A researcher acts like the coach of a sports team. In a pregame meeting, a coach describes the
possible scenarios associated with outcomes of a game. “If we win, it means we go to the
playoffs; if we lose it means our season is over.” The coach’s specificity helps ensure everyone
is clear on what the team is up against and what is at stake.
Before doing an analysis, researchers do something similar. They acknowledge potential
outcomes of the upcoming analysis. “We can find either: (a) variation in the data reflects chance,
or (b) variation in the data is due to a systematic law.”
Researchers call position (a) null hypothesis (symbolized H0). Researchers call position (b)
alternative hypothesis (symbolized Ha). A researcher customizes the hypotheses to a study,
using symbols and information about the specific study.
1. Indicate your research hypotheses (null and alternative), incorporating the appropriate
symbols. [To answer this question, you need, in part, to look at the research scenario.]
2. State what the hypotheses mean. [Some overlap may exist with your answer to # 1. These
are related rather than mutually exclusive questions.]

In this milestone, you will submit the Milestone Three Worksheet.
Address the following:
1. Indicate the null hypothesis and the alternative hypothesis.
2. State your understanding of what the hypotheses mean.
Specifically, the following critical element must be addressed:
B. Identify the null hypothesis and alternative hypothesis using appropriate statistical symbols and language based on what you are comparing.
