PLEASE USE THE INFO N THE PP PROVIDED TO WRITE THE CONCLUSION, THANK YOU

Change is a constant in life. Change and growth are the basic tenets of developmental psychology, and several theorists have developed frameworks to explain the various life stages of psychosocial and cognitive development. Although it may seem obvious that a 13-year-old will deal with disasters, crises, or traumas differently than a 40-year-old, these developmental differences can be critically important to accurately assessing the impact on the survivor.

Equally critical to the assessment of the impact of disasters, crises, or traumas is taking into account the survivors’ values and beliefs, social support systems, and the cultures in which they exist. In this Discussion, you will interview a friend or family member who has experienced a disaster, crisis, or trauma to determine his or her psychosocial development, coping style, and support system at the time of the event. Then, based on the interview, you will explain the importance of collecting developmental and ecological information from survivors when assessing the impact of disasters, crises, and traumas.

1.      Two boats, the Prada (Italy) and the Oracle (USA), are competing for a spot in the upcoming America’s Cup race. They race over a part of the course several times. The sample times in minutes for the Prada were: 12.9, 12.5, 11.0, 13.3, 11.2, 11.4, 11.6, 12.3, 14.2, and 11.3.  The sample times in minutes for the Oracle were: 14.1, 14.1, 14.2, 17.4, 15.8, 16.7, 16.1, 13.3, 13.4, 13.6, 10.8, and 19.0. For data analysis, the appropriate test is the t-Test: Two-Sample Assuming Unequal Variances.

The next table shows the results of this independent t-test. At the .05 significance level, can we conclude that there is a difference in their mean times? Explain these results to a person who knows about the t test for a single sample but is unfamiliar with the t test for independent means.

2.      The Willow Run Outlet Mall has two Haggar Outlet Stores, one located on Peach Street and the other on Plum Street. The two stores are laid out differently, but both store managers claim their layout maximizes the amounts customers will purchase on impulse. A sample of ten customers at the Peach Street store revealed they spent the following amounts more than planned: $17.58, $19.73, $12.61, $17.79, $16.22, $15.82, $15.40, $15.86, $11.82, $15.85. A sample of fourteen customers at the Plum Street store revealed they spent the following amounts more than they planned when they entered the store: $18.19, $20.22, $17.38, $17.96, $23.92, $15.87, $16.47, $15.96, $16.79, $16.74, $21.40, $20.57, $19.79, $14.83. For Data Analysis, a t-Test: Two-Sample Assuming Unequal Variances was used.

At the .01 significance level is there a difference in the mean amount purchased on an impulse at the two stores?Explain these results to a person who knows about the t test for a single sample but is unfamiliar with the t test for independent means.

3.      Fry Brothers heating and Air Conditioning, Inc. employs Larry Clark and George Murnen to make service calls to repair furnaces and air conditioning units in homes. Tom Fry, the owner, would like to know whether there is a difference in the mean number of service calls they make per day. Assume the population standard deviation for Larry Clark is 1.05 calls per day and 1.23 calls per day for George Murnen. A random sample of 40 days last year showed that Larry Clark made an average of 4.77 calls per day. For a sample of 50 days George Murnen made an average of 5.02 calls per day. At the .05 significance level, is there a difference in the mean number of calls per day between the two employees? What is the p-value?

In this assignment, you will investigate concepts such as conformity, compliance, and obedience. Each of you has probably seen a story on the news about someone joining a cult, group, or gang. As you watch the news story, you may wonder why that person would conform to the strict requests made by the group, cult, or gang. For example, a cult in 1997 called Heaven’s Gate convinced all 39 members to commit suicide. A group called the Moonies (Unification Church) would convince its members to cut contact with anyone outside of the group (family and friends) and donate all of their money to the church. Why would anyone willingly join one of these groups?

Discuss the following in your paper:Research a group, gang, or cult that you believe uses conformity, compliance, or obedience to have people join and stay in that particular gang. In your own words give a summary of the group, gang, or cult’s mission.What does that group outwardly say to recruit someone into the group, gang, or cult?Discuss how the group uses social influence such as conformity, compliance, and obedience to keep members in the group, gang, or cult.Why would someone stay in one of these groups, gangs, or cults?If someone in the group, gang, or cult wanted to leave, would it be an easy transition? What may prevent him or her from leaving?

Please submit your assignment.
