Aftera readinga througha thea study,a therea werea twoa notablea strengths:
1. Thea dataa analysisincludinga Y-interceptarea present,a witha thea SPSSa
formattinga ofa APAa donea well.
2. Thea authora dida aa gooda joba identifyinga limitationsa ofa thea studya thata coulda
havea beena impactful.
a a a a a a a a a a a a Thea relevancea ofa thea articlesa discusseda wasa clear,a buta causala languagea wasa
useda ina thea lasta paragrapha whena thea authora mentionsa thata spiritualitya improvesa
mentala health;a ifa hea wasa referringa toa aa studya therea wasa noa cleara reference.a Aa fewa
issuesa thata coulda bea improveda upona area asa follows:
1. Ina thea runninga head,a therea isa singulara languagea (woman’s)a anda plurala
languagea (their).a Whilea thea Americana Psychologicala Associationa (2020)a
encouragesa singulara “they”a whena gendera isa ina questiona (Sectiona 4.18),a herea
ita doesa nota appeara toa be,a soa thea correctiona woulda bea toa changea “aa
woman’s”a toa “women’s”.
2. Whilea thea authora doesa aa greata joba formattinga SPSSa dataa ina APAa format,a thata
applicationa toa thea worda processora coulda usea somea improvement,a witha largea
chunksa ofa whitea space.a Ita seemsa shrinkinga thea tablesa slightlya maya bea
enougha toa geta thema ona thea samea pagea asa theira headings;a titlea casea shoulda
alsoa bea useda fora tablea titlesa asa pera Sectiona 7.9a (Americana Psychologicala
Association,a 2020).
3. Thea authora expressesa thea understandinga thata thea resultsa area non-
significant,a buta ina thea Resultsa section,a saysa thata thea nulla hypothesisa isa not.
Aftera goinga througha youra studya ona thea correlationa betweena spiritualitya anda
loneliness,a thea resulta anda discussiona sectionsa area wella writtena anda checkeda
manya ofa thea assignmenta requirementa boxes.a Youa starta bya statinga thea
hypothesisa ofa thea study,a whicha givesa thea readera aa gooda ideaa ofa thea purposea ofa
thea study.a Youa commenceda thea resulta sectiona bya statinga thea attributesa ofa thea
samplea populationa whilea presentinga thea frequencya statisticsa withouta includinga
thea tablesa asa pera thea instructions.a Youa rightlya noteda thea missinga demographica
characteristicsa ina thea data,a whicha pointeda toa weaknessa ina thea data.a
a a a a a a a a a a a a a Thea simplea lineara regressiona modela ina thea hypothesisa testinga sectiona
wasa used,a whicha isa prefera toa correlationa analysis.a Thea lineara regressiona modela
providesa morea informationa thana thea correlation.a Ia alsoa appreciatea thata youa
correctlya formatteda thea tablea usinga thea APAa guidelinesa anda nameda thema
appropriately.a Youra usea ofa aa scattera plota gavea ana excellenta visuala analysisa ofa
thea relationshipa betweena thea variablesa ina thea research.

a a a a a a a a a a a a Youra interpretationa ofa regressiona outputa wasa alsoa correct,a whicha
indicateda thata spiritualitya wasa ana insignificanta predictora ofa lonelinessa witha aa p-
valuea ofa 0.423.a Ia alsoa agreea witha youra R
2
a interpretation,a wherea youa indicatea thata
spiritualitya accounteda fora aa 3.16%a percentagea ina thea variabilitya ofa loneliness.a
However,a Ia thinka youra interpretationa ofa thea relationshipa betweena thea variablesa
mighta bea misplaced.a Fora instance,a youa state,a “Thea correlationa betweena lowera
levelsa ofa lonelinessa anda highera levelsa ofa spiritualitya isa 0.190.a Ia thisa thisa isa
misleadinga sincea therea isa aa positivea correlationa betweena lonelinessa anda
spirituality.a Therefore,a highera levelsa ofa spiritualitya predicteda highera levelsa ofa
loneliness.
a a a a a a a a a a a a a Ina thea resulta section,a youa correctlya mentioneda thea aima ofa thea studya
anda itsa findingsa whicha gavea thea readera aa summarya ofa thea study.a Youa furthera
revisiteda thea weaknessa ina thea data,a notinga thata conveniencea samplinga resulteda
ina aa biaseda anda non-representativea sample.a Youa alsoa citeda threea previousa
studiesa ona thea studya topic,a notinga thata theya contradicteda youra researcha
findings.a Youa finallya highlighteda thea importancea ofa studyinga thea relationshipa
betweena thea studya variablesa whena recommendinga aa similara studya thata
surpasseda thea weaknessesa ofa youra study.a Ia appreciatea thea facta thata youra
researcha wasa wella conducteda anda explained.
