This needn't be a Master's thesis, but is a short statistical study on
real data--not something out of the book. It can be data you gather yourself
or something you find at work or on the web. The analysis must involve
EXCEL tools we have used this semester to answer a real question. So it
should include a test of a hypothesis, not just descriptive statistics.
the report should be 2-3 pages suitable for display and discussion
on the last day of class. The first page will include description of the
question, some detail on how the data was obtained, interpretation of results
and conclusion. Other than scanning them to see they meet those criteria,
I won't scrutinize them before assigning a grade. However, if you are on
a borderline, the quality of this report can make a big difference.
