Think about your work experiences. Have you ever witnessed the use of statistics at work? Perhaps statistics were used in monthly reports, in training, or in performance metrics.
- How are descriptive statistics different from inferential statistics, and when is it appropriate to use each?
- Provide an industrial/organizational (I/O) psychology-related example of research that uses both descriptive and inferential statistics. You may either use an example from your personal work experience or look for an example from the literature.
