Effectiveness;data collected and analyzed for this orientation course data indicates that the;orientation increases students? intrinsic religious motives. The researcher is;interested to know if students? intrinsic religious motives are related to;their faith development.

If a;relationship is found between these variables, then the university may explore;the possibility of adding a faith development piece to their orientation and;data collection.;Case Study 2;TheFaith Development Scale (FDS;Leak,Loucks, &Bowlin, 1999);was given tostudents;upon entrance into the university and then again given for the purpose of this research.;As the university is a faith based institution, the;researcher recognizes the importance of measuring students? faith development;to examine if the school is meeting its mission. Thus, the researcher asks the;question, is there a statically significant difference in students? faith;development from the time of entrance to now?;Choose either;Case 3 or 4;Case Study 3;The university;wants the researcher to determine whether students differ in their faith development;as measured by theFaith Development Scale (Leak,Loucks, &Bowlin, 1999)and their sense;of community based their choice of delivery environment (online, blended).

The following question is posed: Do university students;differ in terms of faith development and sense of community based on delivery;environment?;Case Study 4;The;university wants the researcher to determine whether there are differences in GPA;based on delivery environment and race. If differences are found, then they may;need to evaluate course ethnic sensitivity and the teaching and learning strategies;used within each learning environment. Thus, the following question is posed;Do university students differ in terms of GPA based on race and delivery;environment? (Hint: Since you have learned about the importance of power, be;sure to note and discuss observed power for each non-significant effect. Are;there any possible Type I or II errors?)
