Question

a researcher conducts a hypothesis test to evaluate the effect of the treatment that is expected to increases scores. the hypothesis test produces a z-score of z= 2.75. if the researcher is using a one tailed test, what is the correct statistical decision?

Answer #1

this is a righ tailed test (one tailed)

tset statistc (z) = 2.75

p value is:-

[ using standrad normal table]

p value = 0.003 <0.05 (alpha)

so, we * reject the null hypothesis* and
conclude that there is sufficient evidence to claim that the
treatment is expected to increases scores.

a researcher conducts a hypothesis test to evaluate the effect
of the treatment. the hypothesis test produces a z-score of z=
2.75. Assuming that the researcher is using a two-tailed test,what
decision should be made?

Question #3
A researcher is conducting and experiment to evaluate a
treatment that is expected to increase the scores for individuals
in a population. If the researcher uses a one-tailed test with ( a
= .01), then which of the following correctly identifies the
critical region?
A. z > 2.33
B. z > 2.58
C. z < 2.33
D. z < 2.58
Question #4
A researcher evaluates a treatment effect using a two tailed
hypothesis test with ( a =...

A two-tailed hypothesis test is being used to evaluate a
treatment effect with α = .05. If the sample data produce a z-score
statistic of z = -1.24, then what is the correct decision?
Reject the null hypothesis and conclude that the treatment has
no effect.
Reject the null hypothesis and conclude that the treatment has
an effect.
Fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude that the
treatment has an effect.
Fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude...

*A researcher was interested in inspecting the effect of
classical music on stress among New York students. She studied a
sample of 30 New York students. She found that z= -3.00. Using a =
0.5(two-tailed), what can she conclude?
-Reject the null hypothesis and conclude that classical music
has no effect on stress levels
-Reject the null hypothesis and conclude that classical music has
no effect on stress levels
-Failed to reject the null hypothesis...

1. After summarizing data collected to test a null hypothesis
(e.g., observing z as a test statistic), a researcher fails to
reject the null hypothesis (p > .05). The researcher then
concludes that there is no treatment effect (treatment does not
affect variation on the DV).
Is this a correct conclusion?
a. yes, it is correct
b. no, it is incorrect; a decision to fail to reject the null
hypothesis results in ignorance about a treatment effect

A researcher would like to evaluate the effect of a new cold
medication on reaction time. It is known that under regular
circumstances the distribution of reaction times is normal with µ =
200. A sample of n = 9 participants is obtained. Each
person is given the new cold medication, and 1 hour later reaction
time is measured for each individual. The average reaction time for
this sample is M = 206 with SS = 648. The
researcher would...

a researcher gave a vitamin treatment to 75 participants
predicting an increase in overall health scores. The sample’s mean
turned out to be 16, μ = 15 and σ = 5, . A) Is there a
statistically significant of the vitamin treatment if the
researcher used a one-tailed Z-test and state why? B) Is there a
statistically significant effect of the vitamin treatment if the
researcher used a two-tailed Z-test and state why? C) What is the
95% confidence interval?

A researcher predicts that scores in treatment A will be higher
than scores in treatment B. If the mean for the 8 participants in
treatment A is 4 points higher than the mean for the 8
participants in treatment B and the data produce t =

A researcher conducted a single-sample null hypothesis test with
the z-statistic. The researcher reports that z = +1.30. This
z-statistic was calculated from sample data that was drawn from a
normal population. The researcher sets α = .05 and uses a
two-tailed test. On the basis of his data, the researcher decides
to fail to reject the null hypothesis. Did the researcher make the
correct decision or did he make an error? If he made an error, what
type of...
