BACKGROUND
Give some background on the question you are studying. Include anything interesting about your group discussion for this project.

SOURCE OF DATA
Describe the source of your data. Describe why you chose this source and whether you had any difficulties with gathering the data. Describe why you consider this data source to give dependable and relevant data for your study. If you will be conducting a survey, include a copy of the survey, describe how you will choose your sample.

TYPE OF ANALYSIS
Describe the type of analysis you will use to analyze your data. This might include Scatter Plot and Regression Analysis, or Chi-Square test for Independence of two characteristics.

This will continue with the data collection, analysis and conclusions.

Title: Does studying more hours means higher exam grades?

Objective: The objective is to conclude whether there is a relationship between hours spent studying and exam grades. Specifically, among students in Fall 2017 MAT1372 D556 at City Tech, is there positive correlation between the amount of hours spent studying for the first and second exams and the test grades?
The two variables being compared are amount of hours spent studying for the first and second exams, and the first and second exam grades. The population from which the data will be drawn from is the students of our class, Fall 2017 MAT1372 D556.

Background: There are students who study and get the grades they deserve. There are also students who don’t study, but always get good grades (in general). There are also students who don’t study at all and gets low or failing grades. And there are students who study every single second they get, yet they don’t get the high grades they expected to earn. So how does the amount of hours spent studying affect test grades? Is there a positive correlation? Or is there no relationship?

Source of Data: Data will be collected through a survey.┬áStudents will be given a survey where they will anonymously answer what grades they received for the first and second exams (without corrections), how many hours they spent studying for the first and second exams, and how many hours they spent studying for the class per week. The sample is the students of our class. Data collected from this source is relevant because we want to see if the amount of hours spent studying for the first and second exams affected the students’ exam grades. For the students who always attend the class, it was easy to gather the data. As for the students who dropped the class or barely attend class, it was difficult to gather data from them.

Type of Analysis: A scatter plot and regression analysis will be used to analyze the data. Correlation will also be used to analyze the data.
