I am very interested in music as it is a large part of my everyday life. I wake up to music, listen to it throughout my day and at times go to bed with music on. Furthermore I own and operated a music studio located in home.
I chose a research paper about music to review for its potential inclusion of what would be considered as the correct content in a research paper. The content I am in search of in this writing are the population, hypothesis and sample as well. The hypothesis is the direct possible link to substantiate between two variables. The population are the people, events, or things involved in possibly substantiating the hypothesis. And finally, a sample in a research paper is a subgroup of the population. For example 50 nurses would be a sample of the 250 nurses within the population.
After reading the research article I've concluded that the only possible hypothesis if any within this writing is as follows: Sex-stereotyped choice of instruments in school music programs remains strong, with only slight indications that they have weakened since the first studies on this topic in the 1970s.
The population that should exist within this writing would be the chosen instruments in school programs across the world. Quite vague and even more it may be very difficult to attain accurate numbers in. The research paper did not include a successful number of school programs and their count of stereotypical instruments.
The sample or subgroup that could potentially be included in this research would be elementary, or high school music programs. The writing failed in this area as well as it only mentioned the likings of individual boys and girls and not a subgroup within school programs. [continues]
