Simply reporting measures of central tendency or measures of variability will not tell the whole story. Using the following information, what else does a psychologist need to know or think about when interpreting this information?
A school psychologist decided to separate some classes by gender to see if learning improved. She looked at student scores on the final exam and obtained the following information: Students in boy-girl classrooms obtained an average of 71.4 on their final exams with a standard deviation of 10.8 whereas students in single-gendered classrooms obtained an average of 75.9 on their final exams with a standard deviation of 8.2.

Connection Between Theory and Practice
What relationship(s) do you find between grand nursing theories and application to clinical practice? Provide one example that uses a specific grand range theory to support your views.
In this thread we will cover the relationship between grand theory and practice. The majority of individuals that fail to recognize the value of theory to practice make this decision based on the abstractness of grand theories. Grand theories focus on nursing knowledge as a whole, address the nature, focus, and goals for nursing care, and are developed from the insights and observations of the theorist.
What relationship(s) do you find between middle-range nursing theories and evidence-based practice? Provide one example that uses a specific middle-range theory to support your views.
In this thread we will cover the relationship between middle-range theory and evidence-based practice. Middle-range theories are less abstract or more focused in their scope than grand range theories. They provide the nurse with a limited view of nursing compared to the grand theories. Many middle-range theories can be applied directly to practice.
he course outcomes that will be used to guide the learning process are:
• Analyze theories from nursing and relevant fields with respect to their components, relationships among the components, logic if the propositions, comprehensiveness, and utility to advanced nursing. (PO #1)
• Examine instances where theory is used to guide the development of new knowledge and implementation of evidence-based practice. (PO #6)
