Question

A Psych 144 student randomly assigns 100 participants to one of two conditions. In one condition, they complete a self-report anxiety measure on red paper. In the other condition, they complete the same measure on light blue paper. She finds that the mean anxiety score in the red-paper condition is 35 with a standard deviation of 5, while the mean anxiety score in the blue-paper condition is 30 with a standard deviation of 5. The Psych 144 student does a null hypothesis test. Based on the sample size and relationship strength, which of the following would you expect this test to show?

The difference is due to chance / not statistically significant.

The difference is real / statistically significant.

Answer #1

1)
A student randomly and independently samples and assigns 9
participants to one of 5 conditions. She gives each group a
treatment she believes will affect performance on the dependent
measure. Higher scores indicate better performance. The ANOVA
summary table is from the data that she has collected. Find
the dfbetween. If needed, please round to two
decimal places.

A college instructor gave identical tests to two randomly
sampled groups of 35 students. One group took the test on paper and
the other took it online. The mean test score for the group that
took the test on paper was 68.4 with a standard deviation of 10.2.
The mean test score for the group that took the test online was
71.3 with a standard deviation of 10.7. Can you conclude there is a
difference in the mean score between...

A college instructor gave identical tests to two randomly
sampled groups of 40 students. One group took the test on paper and
the other took it online. Those who took the test on paper had an
average score of 68.4 with a standard deviation of 12.1. Those who
took the test online had an average score of 71.3 with a standard
deviation of 14.2. Can you conclude that the mean scores differ
between online and paper tests? Find the P-value...

Two movie theaters are across the street from one another, in
direct competition! Theater A takes a sample of 50 days, and finds
that in that sample an average of 547 customers come through the
theater each day, with a standard deviation of 42. They proudly
display their results. Theater B takes a sample of 30 days and
finds that in their sample, they have an average of 571 customers,
with a standard deviation of 59. They claim this means...

1. A social researcher wants to test the hypothesis that people
who drink a lot while bowling have higher scores than people who do
not drink while they bowl. The researcher studies 50 drinking
bowlers and 50 non-drinking bowlers. The average score for drinking
bowlers was 142 with a standard deviation of 7.45. The average
score for non-drinking bowlers was 134 with a standard deviation of
6.81.
In words: What are your conclusions about the null
hypothesis?

T-tests are used when you want to examine differences but you do
not know everything about the population. There are three types of
t-tests that you may choose to do: one-sample t-test, independent
sample t-test, or dependent sample t-test. You can calculate these
by hand, in SPSS, or in Excel. The instructions below can be used
for SPSS and your textbook offers instructions for using Excel.

1.The sample mean is an unbiased estimator for
the population mean. This means:
The sample mean always equals the population mean.
The average sample mean, over all possible samples, equals the
population mean.
The sample mean will only vary a little from the population
mean.
The sample mean has a normal distribution.
2.Which of the following statements is
CORRECTabout the sampling distribution of the
sample mean:
The standard error of the sample mean will decrease as the
sample size increases....
