(Get Answer) – You Are To Complete All Three Scenarios

Question Description

You are to complete all three scenarios:

Scenario #1: The State of Wisconsin began running a Boot Camp for first time youth drug offenders. The camp entails sending the offenders to the north woods from 3/14/2015 – 4/27/2015. “Campers” will build their own shelters and cook over open fires. The camp also includes traditional boot camp aspects like exercise, drills, etc. Billy Badger was given the job of determining the effectiveness of the boot camp. The next time the boot camp is conducted, he will compare a random sample of offenders placed in traditional programs (e.g., probation, incarceration, drug treatment, day treatment, house arrest, etc.) to a random sample of offenders placed in the boot camp. He is planning on comparing the groups on recidivism rates for the next two years.

Scenario #2: Bob’s plant shop was trying to determine what was causing leaves on plants in their shop to change color related to temperature. What would be a design to study leaf color change related to temperature?

Scenario #3: Jim was trying to determine which gasoline he uses in his car gets him the best mileage. He use four gasolines: Exxon, Shell, BP and Mobil. What design could be used with this design?

Organize your responses in this way:
