please add from the last assignment (week 7). 

Discussion: Social Change Implications of Research Scenario
For some, research may seem like an obscure term that evokes images of scientists in lab coats who produce data written for and consumed by other scientists. However, research can have far-reaching implications for individuals, groups, and society at large, extending far beyond the confines of a lab or the pages of an academic journal. One example of such research is a seminal study on the bystander effect. Researchers, Darley and Latan (1968), became interested in the behaviors of bystanders after a woman in New York City was murdered and, of the 38 bystanders who looked on from their apartment windows, none called the police for help. Therefore, they conducted an experimental study on the behaviors of participants (bystanders) in response to a victim in a fictious emergency and found that participants who thought they were alone with the victim intervened more quickly than participants who thought there were other bystanders present. Darley and Latan concluded that diffused responsibility explained the findings, that is, bystanders feel less responsible for intervening when in the presence of others because they assume someone else will intervene. Since their initial study, the bystander effect has been studied extensively and has informed bullying and sexual harassment training programs, making schools and workplaces safer for students and employees.

In this Discussion, you will think about how the potential findings from the inferential quantitative research study you proposed in previous weeks might have positive implications for social change.

To Prepare
Reflect on the inferential quantitative research scenario you discussed in previous weeks.
Identify areas you need to build on and refine, and think about the social change implications of this potential inferential research study.
Alignment of scenario elements is important. See the Examples of Aligned and Misaligned Scenarios document, which can be downloaded from the Week 8 Learning Resources area of the classroom.
Discussion posts are pass/fail but have minimum criteria to pass. See the Discussion Rubric to ensure you understand the pass/fail criteria.
By Day 3
This week is only about the quantitative scenario. Repost, or build on or refine as needed, your quantitative scenario using the following headings and according to the italicized instructions given for each element:

Program of Study: Identify your specific program of study and, if applicable, your concentration area.

Social Problem: Briefly describe the social problem or phenomenon of interest. Typically, this can be done in 3 or fewer sentences.

Quantitative Research Problem: Complete the following sentence: The scholarly community does not know

Quantitative Research Purpose: Typically, this is a 1-sentence statement addressed by completing the following sentence: The purpose of this quantitative study is

Quantitative Research Question: Typically, this is a 1-sentence question unless you have more than one research question.

Theory or Conceptual Framework: Identify a specific psychological or sociological theory or specific aspects of a conceptual framework that guides the scenario. Briefly describe how the specific theory or conceptual framework guides your research question and will aid in interpretation of results.

Quantitative Research Design: Identify a specific quantitative research design. Do not use broad terms, such as survey design, cohort design, longitudinal design, causal-comparative design, cross-sectional design, and so on. Briefly describe how the selected design fits your scenario.

Quantitative Sampling Strategy: Be specific.

Quantitative Data Collection Method: Be specific.

Variables: Briefly describe each of your variables to include their range of measured values, level of measurement (nominal, ordinal, interval, or ratio), and identification as either an independent or dependent variable.

Statistical Analysis: Describe and defend a specific statistical procedure you would use to answer the research question.

Social Change: Briefly describe positive social change implications of potential findings.

Note: Use proper APA format. If helpful, support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources.
