A researcher wants to determine if there is a relationship between average temperature increase in the US and average temperature increase in Europe over the last 10 years. He receives two data samples on 10-year average temperature increase- one from his colleagues in Europe (measured in °C) and one from his team the US (measured in °F). What statistical test should he perform? |

Answer #1

**(d) Correlation**

The appropriate statistical test that could be performed is 'correlation'. This is because a realtionship (if exists) is to be determined between the two variables that are in question. Correlation would be appropriate as the direction of relationship as well as the strength of the relationship could be determined. That is, if there is a direct or indirect relationship and if there is what is the strength of the relationship.

A researcher is interested in comparing two medications in
order to see which contributes to the greatest decrease in symptoms
as measured by an instrument on a scale of 0-100. The researcher
recruits three groups of participants, one who receive medication
A, one group of participants who receive medication B, and a
control group who receives a placebo.
A. What type of study design is this (descriptive,
correlational, or experimental)?
B. What would be the appropriate statistical analysis to use...

A medical researcher wants to determine whether a drug changes
the body’s temperature. Seven test subjects are randomly selected,
and the body temperature (in degrees Fahrenheit) of each is
measured. The subjects are then given the drug and after 20
minutes, the body temperature of each is measured again. The
results are listed below. Use significance level α = 0.05, and we
assume that the body temperatures are normally distributed.pleae

An educational psychologist studies the effect of frequent
testing on retention of class material. The students are randomly
assigned to one of two sections of an introductory course. In one
section of an introductory course, students are given quizzes each
week. A second section of the same course receives only two tests
during the semester. At the end of the semester, both sections
receive the same final exam. Please choose the statistical test
that is most appropriate for...

A researcher would like to determine whether an over-the-counter
cold medication has an effect on mental alertness. A sample of n =
16 participants is obtained, and each person is given a standard
dose of the medication one hour before being tested in a driving
simulation task. For the general population, scores on the
simulation task...

A researcher wants to look at the difference in achievement

into their family in and provides a questionnaire about lifetime
achievement. What hypothesis test should this researcher use to
analyze their data?

A. A researcher wants to know whether identical twins differ in
their self-confidence. Specifically, she wants to know whether the
twin that was born first benefits from being "the older" twin.
Which type of t-test would be most appropriate for comparing the
average self-confidence of older twins to the younger twins?
B. Kruger and Dunning (1999) published a paper called "Unskilled
and Unaware of It", in which they examined the hypothesis that
people who perform badly on tasks are unaware...

A researcher is interested in determining whether women show
greater affection than men. Affection is measured as a ratio
variable- number of hugs given per year. There were 10 men (n1 =
10) in the study and 10 women in the study (n2 = 10). The mean
number of hugs for men was 3.5 and the mean number of hugs for
women was 5.0. The SS1 for men was 16.5 and the SS2 for women was
28.5. Assume an alpha...

For each of the following studies determine which t-test is the
appropriate analysis (one sample, repeated measures, independent
