Question

a. State the null hypothesis.

b. Identify the appropriate statistical test

c. Calculate the appropriate test statistic. Make sure to report the degrees of freedom for the statistical test (if appropriate). You must show your work to receive full credit.

d. State your conclusions (use a two-tailed test with a = .05 for all tests).

e. Compute an effect size.

A researcher knows that the weights of 6 year olds are normally distributed with m = 20 kg and s = 5.0. She suspects that children in poverty-stricken regions differ from the population. With a sample of n = 25 children, the researcher obtains a mean of 17 kg.

Answer #1

**Given:**

= 20, n = 25, = 17, SD(S) = 5, = 0.05

a)

**Hypothesis:**

**Ho:**
= 20

**Ha:**
20

b) One sample t test

C)

**Test
statistic:**

Degree of freedom = n-1 = 25-1 = 24

P-value = 0.0062 ...................Using t table

d)

**Conclusion:**

P-value < α, i.e. 0.0062 <
0.05, That is **Reject Ho** at 5% level of
significance.

e)

effect size = d =

A researcher knows that the weights of 6 year olds are
normally distributed with μ = 20 kg and
σ = 5.0. She suspects that children in poverty-stricken
regions differ from the population. With a sample of n = 25
children, the researcher obtains a mean of 17
kg.
a. State the null hypothesis.
b. Identify the appropriate statistical test
c. Calculate the appropriate test statistic. Make sure to report
the degrees of freedom for the statistical test (if appropriate)....

A researcher knows that the weights of 6-year-olds are normally
distributed with u = 20.9 kg and o = 3.2. She suspects that
children in poverty-stricken regions are undernourished and
therefore underweight. With a sample of n = 16 children, the
researcher obtains a sample mean of M = 18.3. Use a one-tailed test
with = .01 to determine if the weights for this sample are
significantly lower than what would be expected for the regular
population of 6-year-olds

A researcher is interested in the relationship between one’s
satisfaction with pay (X) and one’s commitment to the organization
(Y). The researcher collects data from 24 employees and finds that
the correlation between the two variables is r = 0.22.
a. State the null hypothesis.
b. Identify the appropriate statistical test
c. Calculate the appropriate test statistic. Make sure to report
the degrees of freedom for the statistical test (if appropriate).

A psychologist is examining the educational advantages of a
preschool program. A sample of 16 fourth grade children is
obtained. Half of these children (n = 8) attended preschool and the
others (n = 8) had not. The psychologist records the scholastic
achievement score for each child.

You are a biomedical researcher and you want to know if the
consumption of alcohol during
pregnancy affects the birthweight of
babies. You know that the average birthweight for babies in the
U.S. is m = 7.5 pounds. You draw a random sample of 16 infants
whose mothers indicated that they regularly consumed alcohol during
pregnancy. The sample had a mean of 6.50 and a standard deviation
of 1.50.
a.
State the null hypothesis.
b.
Identify the appropriate statistical test...

A therapist would like to evaluate an intervention for treating
depression. A
sample of n = 20 depressed clients is
obtained, and each person’s level of depression is measured using a
standardized questionnaire before they begin the therapy program.
Two weeks after therapy, each client’s level of depression is
measured again. The average level of depression dropped by 4.0
points following therapy. The difference scores had a variance of
64.
a. State the null hypothesis.
b.
Identify the appropriate statistical...

State the appropriate t-test for each hypothesis and explain
your answers. (a) The experimental group will score higher than the
control group. (b) Students will score higher on the post-test than
they did on the pre-test. (c) Children with autism differ
significantly from children without autism on tests of verbal
ability

a. State the Null and Alternative
Hypotheses in words.
b. Perform the appropriate hypothesis
test using an Alpha of .05. Be sure to write what critical value
you are using in your work.
c. State your results first by saying
whether you reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis. Then
state the conclusion in your own words.

Part 1:
Information: A hypothesis of clinical interest
was that vitamin C prevents the common cold. A study is organized
to test this hypothesis using 20 participants. In the study, 10
were randomly allocated to receive vitamin C capsules and 10 were
randomly allocated to receive placebo capsules. The number of colds
over a 12-month period for each participant is recorded. The
samples were randomly selected, and the populations are
approximately normally distributed. Population variances are
unknown but assumed to...
