Using the definition of recovery provided . Determine how many participants recovered at the end of treatment.
Use a chi-square analysis to compare recovery rates across the three treatments.
Integrate your chi-square analysis with other analyses you’ve completed this quarter. You will need to decide which analyses are appropriate for inclusion to write the following sections of the APA format research report:

The 99 dataset is used for this project.
Anxiety disorders are the most commonly diagnosed disorders in children and adolescents. Fortunately, recent research suggests that many youths with anxiety disorders can be treated using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). In the past, anxiety disorders were traditionally treated with either psychodynamic therapy or a supportive type of therapy (one that offers encouragement and empathy but is not really driven by any particular theory of psychotherapy). Therefore, it is important to know how the CBT compares to these types of treatments. Your job is to use a dataset to conduct the types of analyses (both descriptive and inferential) that would be included in a research report addressing this dataset.
In this course, you will use a dataset similar to the one psychologists use when conducting this type of research. You will write sections of a research report (the results section, a brief discussion section, and part of the methods section) using the APA format.
The researchers conducting the study measured children’s anxiety before and after treatment using the Revised Children’s Manifest Anxiety Scale (RCMAS), a
self-report of anxiety in which scores can range from 0–28 (with higher scores indicating higher anxiety). Researchers also measured the related constructs of depression and self-efficacy for dealing with anxiety provoking situations (both measured on a scale of 0–10 with higher scores indicating more depression and higher self-efficacy) both before and after the treatment. The researchers also defined recovery as a decrease to a score of less than 5 on the RCMAS posttreatment. This variable is not in the database. You will need to create it. Of course, the researchers also kept track of which children received which treatment. The children also provided their age, sex, and ethnicity.
