What can be conclude with α = 0.05?

 sophomore senior 5.9 7.2 7.4 6.8 8.5 6.2 6.1 5.2 2.1 7.5 3.2 6.3 5.5 6.4 4.6 5.2

a) What is the appropriate test statistic?
---Select: na, z-test, One-Sample t-test, Independent-Samples t-test, or Related-Samples t-test

b)
Condition 1:
---Select: senior, time in college, sophomore, test anxiety, or CTAQ
Condition 2:
---Select: senior, time in college, sophomore, test anxiety, or CTAQ

c) Input the appropriate value(s) to make a decision about H0.
(Hint: Make sure to write down the null and alternative hypotheses to help solve the problem.)
p-value? =  ; Decision?:  ---Select--- Reject H0 Fail to reject H0

d) Using the SPSS results, compute the corresponding effect size(s) and indicate magnitude(s).
If not appropriate, input and/or select "na" below.
d? = ;   ---Select: na, trivial effect, small effect, medium effect, or large effect
r2? = ;   ---Select-: na, trivial effect, small effect, medium effect, or large effect

e) Make an interpretation based on the results.
