Abstract

For my project, I looked at data from two different tests, both of which determine whether a person is a fall risk. I was trying to find out if both tests would come to the same conclusion. The data that I used contained males and females aged anywhere from 55 years old to 90 years old. I compared the two tests between the males, the females, and then each data set as a whole. I did this by comparing the average scores from the males, the females, and each data set, to see if there were any differences in the results. My end result was that even though both tests look at whether or not a person is a fall risk, the results were different.
