performance in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Dyspnea was measured with FEV1 (forced expiratory volume in one second) and anxiety, depression, and fatigue were measured with multi-item Likert scales. Physical performance was measured with the 6 minute walk test (6MWT), which was the distance patients could walk in six minutes. What is the level of measurement for each of the study variables? Provide a rationale for your answer.

9: Smith and colleagues (2014, p. 68) developed the following question to guide their study: “What are the relationships among the variables of perceived stress, sleep quality, loneliness, and self-esteem among obese young adult women?” The variables were measured with multi-item Likert scales, and the data were considered at the interval level. What inferential statistical technique did these researchers conduct to analyze their study data? Provide a rationale for your answer.

Answer: –
10: Hersh et al. (2018) conducted a randomized controlled trial (RCT) that examined the effect of the web-based stress management intervention on nurses’ stress. The study included 104 subjects that were randomized into an intervention or control group. Nurses’ stress was measured with the Nursing Stress Scale, a multi-item Likert scale, that provided a total stress score. What inferential statistical technique was conducted to examine the effect of the web-based intervention? Provide rationale for your answer.
