You told a friend about the work you have been doing to better understand desirability of professional development in your organization. Your friend thinks the idea would be very helpful in her organization. After you showed her the presentation (linked below), she decided to conduct a similar investigation at her organization. To save time, she decided to distribute the same desirability survey that was used at your organization.

You friend collected responses and has her data but isn’t sure what to do with it. She has reached out to you to help her complete an analysis of the desirability survey from her organization so that she can present it to her supervisor.

Review the

Wk 5 Professional Development Analysis Presentation

.

Use the

desirability survey data attachment from her organization

to create a presentation she can share with her supervisor.

Create an 8- to 10-slide presentation, with speaker notes, using the Professional Development Analysis Presentation as an example. Include the following:

  • The purpose of the investigation
  • The data source
  • Information about the survey instrument
  • Descriptive statistics (number of participants in each group, mean, median, mode, standard deviation)
  • The plan for analysis
  • The null and alternative hypotheses
  • The type of t-test
  • The alpha determined appropriate for the test
  • The results of analysis
  • The t-value, degrees of freedom, p value
  • Rejection (or failed rejection) of the null hypothesis
  • A summary of what the results mean
  • Implications and brief discussion of results

Format the reporting of statistics according to APA guidelines.

This report will discuss the following:
Employee desire to obtain professional development
Costs of professional development
Employee professional development delivery preference

Employee Survey to Determine Desirability of Professional Development
Cost of Professional Development per Employee for various lengths
Employee Survey to Determine Professional Development delivery preference

Data: Desirability Survey
Either Ordinal (item level) or Interval Data (total)
Survey deployed to 50 participants
Score determined by totaling 10 item scores on survey
For each item, participants could add between 1 and 7 point to their score total (Ranging from Strongly Disagree to Strongly Agree)
Maximum score: 70, Minimum Score: 10
Higher scores suggest professional development is more desired

Statistical analysis completed for Desirability Survey
Descriptive statistics
Inferential test (t-test)

Desirability Statistical Analysis: Inferential
Question: Is desirability of professional development different between managers and employees?
H0: µM-µE = 0
H1: µM-µE ≠ 0
Non-directional (two tailed), independent samples t-test, ꭤ = 0.05

t = 2.01, df=48, p = 0.048
Reject the null hypothesis.
Employee and Manager Desirability scores are different.
Managers have greater desirability for professional development than Employees.

Visual Representation: Desirability Survey

Summary & Discussion
Employees and Managers express desirability for professional development, though Managers express greater levels of desirability.
The hourly cost per person for professional development decreases as hours increase. However, this decrease is not very much and probably should not impact considerations strongly.
The majority of participants prefer in person, synchronous professional development
When planning professional development, Managers should be prioritized
