My topic: What is the relationship between counseling and anxiety among teenagers?
Requirements: 1 page
Data will be collected using a pre-test and post-test link. Identification numbers will be issued to each teenager to compare the anxiety scores. The numbers are essential to maintain participant confidentiality. The ID numbers will be selected randomly to avoid any association with participants. They will utilize these ID numbers when filling out the tests. The tests will comprise scales and printed forms that will be filled from the personal electronic devices of the teenagers. Pre-tests data will be collected prior to the first session, while post-test scores will be gathered for 20 days after the last session. The collected information will be checked, but incomplete data from the tests will be excluded from the study. The data analysis process will be executed in two phases. Based on the frequency values of the variables, the data sets from each test will be checked and cleared of missing or inaccurate information.
