It’s well established, we’ll assume, that lab rats require an average of 32 trials in a complex water maze before reaching a learning criterion of three consecutive errorless trials. To determine whether a mildly adverse stimulus has any effect on performance, a sample of seven lab rats were given a mild electrical shock just before each trial.

 Question: Steps: Calculations or Logic: Answer: Given that X 5 34.89 and s 5 3.02, test the null hypothesis with t , using the .05 level of significance. What is the research hypothesis? What is the null hypothesis? Is this a one-tailed or two-tailed test? What are the degrees of freedom? What is the t critical for .05 significance? What is the calculated t? Do you accept or reject the null hypothesis? Construct a 95 percent confidence interval for the true number of trials required to learn the water maze. Interpret this confidence interval. #### Earn Coins
