## Where does the literature review go in an APA research paper?

A literature review can be a part of a research paper or scholarly article, usually falling after the introduction and before the research methods sections.

### What do you focus in a literature review?

In a research paper, you use the literature as a foundation and as support for a new insight that you contribute. The focus of a literature review, however, is to summarize and synthesize the arguments and ideas of others without adding new contributions.

**How do you write a hypothesis for a literature review?**

How to Formulate an Effective Research Hypothesis

- State the problem that you are trying to solve. Make sure that the hypothesis clearly defines the topic and the focus of the experiment.
- Try to write the hypothesis as an if-then statement.
- Define the variables.

**How do you write a hypothesis in statistics?**

Five Steps in Hypothesis Testing:

- Specify the Null Hypothesis.
- Specify the Alternative Hypothesis.
- Set the Significance Level (a)
- Calculate the Test Statistic and Corresponding P-Value.
- Drawing a Conclusion.

## What is an example of a hypothesis?

Here are some examples of hypothesis statements: If garlic repels fleas, then a dog that is given garlic every day will not get fleas. Bacterial growth may be affected by moisture levels in the air. If sugar causes cavities, then people who eat a lot of candy may be more prone to cavities.

### What is the 3 types of hypothesis?

Types of Research Hypotheses

- Alternative Hypothesis. The alternative hypothesis states that there is a relationship between the two variables being studied (one variable has an effect on the other).
- Null Hypothesis.
- Nondirectional Hypothesis.
- Directional Hypothesis.

**How do you write the null hypothesis in symbols?**

The null is not rejected unless the hypothesis test shows otherwise. The null statement must always contain some form of equality (=, ≤ or ≥) Always write the alternative hypothesis, typically denoted with Ha or H1, using less than, greater than, or not equals symbols, i.e., (≠, >, or <).

**What is p-value in statistics?**

The p-value is a number, calculated from a statistical test, that describes how likely you are to have found a particular set of observations if the null hypothesis were true. P-values are used in hypothesis testing to help decide whether to reject the null hypothesis.

## How do you reject the null hypothesis?

After you perform a hypothesis test, there are only two possible outcomes.

- When your p-value is less than or equal to your significance level, you reject the null hypothesis. The data favors the alternative hypothesis.
- When your p-value is greater than your significance level, you fail to reject the null hypothesis.

### What is null and alternative hypothesis example?

The null hypothesis is the one to be tested and the alternative is everything else. In our example: The null hypothesis would be: The mean data scientist salary is 113,000 dollars. While the alternative: The mean data scientist salary is not 113,000 dollars.
