Hypothesis Testing Method for JRT Experiment Design

Here, you are ready to test the hypothesis you have formulated in your JRT experimental design from the Unit 2 assignment. The task is to adjust and reframe your variables and hypothesis in such a way that it can be adequately demonstrated with collected data (better known as Sekaran's Step #8 in the Research Process). Once yu have reframed your design you would have been asked to generate actual data for these variables. However, as we know it takes too much time to generate actual data for your experiment, you are asked to create an imaginary data set for each of your variables. Below are the responding questions that must be inlcuded and answered:
Using the hypothesis testing methods presented in Sekaran(2003), suggest a method that you believe would be most appropriate to test your hypothesis and explain your rationale.

Now that you have created "notional" data to illustrate the hypothesis testing method, apply these data to the hypothesis testing method you selected. You can select either graphical method, simple correlation, or a t-test as your testing method for the data by using the statistical functions in MS Excel.

Based on the results of your calculations, explain whether the hypothesis of your research design is accepted or rejected and comment on the implications of yur results in JRT.

You should address all the questions and provide well-reasoned arguments to support your answers.

Introduction
In unit two we had identified that 'rewards and recognition' and 'employee development programs' improve the productivity of the employee and help the organization. In addition, it has been identified that employee development programs bring about a decrease in the employee turnover rate. On the basis of the finding we define the problems as follows:

Definition of Problem:
To what extent do rewards and recognition affect the employees' performance on their job?
To what extent do employee development programs improve the productivity of the employee?
To what extent do employee development programs reduce the employee turnover?
Null hypothesis:
1. There will be no difference in employee performance after rewards and recognition are given.
2. There will be no difference in employee performance after employee development programs are administered.
3. There will be no difference in employee turnover rate after employee development programs are administered.
Alternative hypothesis/Operational hypothesis:
1. Rewards and recognition will improve employee performance.
2. Employee development programs will improve employee performance.
3. Employee development programs will reduce the employee turnover rate.
