Abstract
The research conducted was primarily during the years of 1987- 1988 on 8
th
grade scholarsacross the United States of America. The National Center for Education (NCES) provided a
longitudinal study on the student’s attendance in high school. The extensive data exhibited that
the number of hours a student watched television can have an impact on the students overall
 proficiency score of their math exams. Not only that, but the student’s gender and lunch plan also
have an impact on exam scores.

Hypothesis
The bivariate relationship in this research exhibited is that the number of hours a studentwatches television on weekdays has an effect on math proficiency exam scores. The number of 
hour’s student watched television acted as the independent variable and the overall math
proficiency exam score proceeded to be the dependent variable. The control variable that helped
clarify the relationship between the independent and dependent variable was the student’s gender 
and their lunch plan. The value for the overall math proficiency began with below zero. The nextlevels where too level one, succeeding this is level one and two, preceding that was all threelevels. The percentage value of students that received free lunch in schools started from none toone through five. Six through ten was the second value, eleven thorough twenty acted as the thirdvalue, twenty one through thirty as the forth, thirty-one to fifty as the fifth, fifty-one throughseventy five as the sixth, and the last value presented was the seventh which was the seventy-sixthrough one hundred percentile.
The student’s gender also
may be essential to how many hours a student watchestelevision. Males may be bound to watch more television than females due to males love forentertainment. Females are bound to be more social and spend more time socializing. Thosestudents who have free lunch may have lower test scores due to the economic stress that thefamily has. The number of hours a student watches T.V. on weekdays has an effect on mathproficiency exam scores. Not only can that but the student sex have an effect. The malepopulation score may be lower than females due to males watching more television. Those who
have free lunch may also have an influence on student’s math proficiency exam scores. Those
who have free lunches may have lower scores

Hi Montori- Your paper looks good thus far. Your tables look awesome!! Check your appendix page because I think you may have some pictures that may need to be deleted. Go back and check your grammar mistakes. Other than those minor tips I think you did a really good job!!

Hi Montori! Nice work! My only suggestions to you would be to come up with a title that better describes the work that you have done (i.e. the variables and relationships); make sure to read over your paper and correct any errors; in your reference page you do not have to number any of your sources. Oh and in your appendix, i am not sure why you places pictures of your variable information there.
