# FIN10002 assignment question

**PRESENTATION **

Presentation is an important feature of a business report. The guide to presentation that follows includes an Executive summary, Introduction, Analysis and Appendices.

Your assignment should be submitted as a single WORD document through the Assessment window on Blackboard.

**YOUR ASSIGNMENT should be presented as follows **

## INTRODUCTION

This should contain information about what we expect to read in the project. THIS

SHOULD TAKE ABOUT HALF A PAGE.

### ANALYSIS

- DESCRIPTIVE STATISTICS

There are 6 variables in your data sets when you ignore the customer ID. For each of these 6 variables you will need to provide an appropriate graph, a frequency tabulation and, in the case of only Interval/Ratio variables, you will need a summary statistics table. What is appropriate depends on the level of measurement (Nominal, Ordinal or Interval/Ratio). You must also (*very important*) provide descriptions related to the information contained in each carefully labeled and numbered graph/table (e.g. Table 1 shows …; Figure 1 shows….).

Do not include any information that you will not include in your descriptions (e.g. kurtosis). Take one variable at a time. THIS SHOULD TAKE ABOUT TWO PAGES.

- CONFIDENCE INTERVAL

“We are 95% confident that………….”

Do not show the method of calculating a confidence interval but place this in Appendix 2.

THIS WILL TAKE HALF A PAGE OR LESS.

- HYPOTHESIS TESTING

Do not write H0 H1 etc. Only your result such as “a hypothesis test was performed in order to determine whether………” Also report the test statistic value (e.g. t=3.10), p-value (e.g. p=.002), degrees of freedom(df=…). THIS WILL TAKE HALF A PAGE OR LESS.

- REGRESSION

Give your scatter plot with the line of best fit on the graph. Describe the strength of the relationship between the variables using R and R square.

Interpret the slope and intercept coefficients and the hypothesis test. Also provide hypothesis test results for the Rho test (result (e.g. t=1.60, p=.063, df=…) . THIS WILL

TAKE ABOUT ONE PAGE.

- CONCLUSIONS AND LIMITATIONS

All the information from the above four sections should be presented here in a concise format. Make sure not to give tables or graphs here. THIS WILL TAKE HALF A PAGE.

(not to be included in the page count)__EXECUTIVE SUMMARY__

**This is your 1 ^{st} page** and not to be included in the page count. Executive summary should be a combined form of Introduction and Conclusions.

Report only the highlights of the findings

Entice an Executive to read on

Essentially a lively summary of the main conclusions

No longer than one page. Since not counted in the page count, must be on a separate page from the rest of the report.

(not to be included in the page count)__APPENDIX__

**Must contain **

__your selection of random numbers and related random data.__

Any additional calculations

Your EXCEL tables for confidence intervals, hypothesis testing and regression.

Graphs must be in the Main body of the report, along with relevant tables and discussion. __Graphs kept only in the appendix will not score any marks.__

Indications given above about the page lengths are only a guideline. You will not be penalized for changing these, as long as you remain within the 5-page limit.
