Question

2a.) You want to know if people's age (in years) is related to the amount of time they spend on social media (hours per week). You collect a sample of 200, and measure both variables. What kind of statistical test does this call for?

- ANOVA
- Independent Samples t-test
- Correlation
- Chi-square for independence
- Single Mean
- Dependent Samples t-test
- Chi-square for goodness of fit

2b.) Then Imagine you have conducted the appropriate test for the above design, with α = .05 and p = .33. What would you conclude?

- Age and social media activity are significantly different.
- Age and social media activity are not significantly different.
- Age and social media activity are significantly related.
- Age and social media activity are not significantly related.

Answer #1

2a.) You want to know if people's age (in years) is related to the amount of time they spend on social media (hours per week). You collect a sample of 200, and measure both variables. What kind of statistical test does this call for?

Since, both variables age (in years) and the amount of time they
spend on social media (hours per week) are numeric variable (
continuous ) hence the best test to be done is
**Correlation**

c. Correlation

2b.) Then Imagine you have conducted the appropriate test for the above design, with α = .05 and p = .33. What would you conclude?

Since, the p = 0.33 > α = .05

hence the null hypothesis is not rejected

Hence,

**Age and social media activity are not significantly related.**

1a.) Seventy-seven percent of your participants are employed,
and you want to know if your sample is representative of the
underlying population (85% employed) on this variable. What kind of
statistical test does this call for?
ANOVA
Dependent Samples t-test
Single Mean
Chi-square for independence
Correlation
Chi-square for goodness of fit
Independent Samples t-test
1b.) Imagine you have conducted the appropriate test for the
above design, with α = .01 and p = .002. What would you
conclude?
Your sample...

1a.) You want to know if there are generational differences in
concern regarding environmental sustainability. You administer a
survey (0-50 scale) to 100 traditional college age students (aged
18-23) and their parents, and compare average levels of concern
between the two groups (children vs. parents). What kind of
statistical test does this call for?
Correlation
ANOVA
Chi-square for independence
Chi-square for goodness of fit
Independent Samples t-test
Single Mean
Dependent Samples t-test
1b.) Imagine you have conducted the appropriate test...

1a.) You want to know if an exercise intervention and a positive
psychology intervention can work together to increase happiness
(measured on a scale from 1-20). You assign participants to either
the exercise or no exercise group, and to either the psychology
intervention or no psychology intervention group. What kind of
statistical test does this call for?
Chi-square for independence
Dependent Samples t-test
Correlation
ANOVA
Independent Samples t-test
Chi-square for goodness of fit
Single Mean
1b.) Imagine you have conducted...

1a.) You want to know if psychology majors register for more
hours, on average, than Upstate students in general. You ask 50 USC
Upstate psychology majors how many hours they are taking, and
acquire the population average (i.e., for all USC Upstate students)
from administration. What kind of statistical test does this call
for?
Dependent Samples t-test
Chi-square for independence
Single Mean
Correlation
Independent Samples t-test
ANOVA
Chi-square for goodness of fit
1b.) Imagine you have conducted the appropriate test...

For the following experiment/question, pick the most appropriate
statistical test. You have the following statistical tests as
choices: some may be used more than once, others not at
all. Assume homogeneity of variance (where
applicable) and the validity of parametric tests (where
applicable), unless something is directly stated (e.g., “the data
are not at all normal”) or otherwise indicated (viz., by the
inspection of the data) which would indicate a strong and obvious
violation of an assumption. This means you must...

You are comparing the average price of gasoline in 10 different
US cities. You sample gas prices in each city. To see if there is
at least one city that has different average prices, you would
use

I
am doing a biology research project where I collected data on
different birds visiting a bird feeder. The data I collected was:
13 sparrows, 10 finches, 7 cardinals, 5 robins, 5 chickadees, and 4
bluejays. I want to pose the question "Is one species more likely
to visit the feeder than the others?" or "Does one species visit
the feeder more than the others?"
What kind of statistical test would I use to do this?
(ex: chi-square goodness of...
