Question

A physical therapist developed a new yoga regimen specifically
for treating back pain. She collected a random sample of chronic
back pain patients from the hospital that underwent the new regimen
for 35 days. For each day of the study, the patients are asked to
rate their back pain on a scale from 0-10; no pain to extreme pain,
respectively. Chronic back pain sufferers typically report a 8 on
the pain scale. Below are the average back pain scores for the
patients over the study. What can be concluded with an α of
0.01?

**a)** What is the appropriate test statistic?

---Select--- na z-test One-Sample t-test Independent-Samples t-test
Related-Samples t-test

**b)**

Population:

---Select--- chronic back pain sufferer pain the hospital patients
on the regimen 35 days

Sample:

---Select--- chronic back pain sufferer pain the hospital patients
on the regimen 35 days

**c)** Input the appropriate value(s) to make a
decision about *H*_{0}.

(Hint: Make sure to write down the null and alternative hypotheses
to help solve the problem.)

*p*-value = ; Decision: ---Select---
Reject H0 Fail to reject H0

**d)** Using the **SPSS** results,
compute the corresponding effect size(s) and indicate
magnitude(s).

If not appropriate, input and/or select "na" below.

*d* = ; ---Select--- na trivial
effect small effect medium effect large effect

*r*^{2} = ; ---Select--- na

**e)** Make an interpretation based on the
results.

The new yoga regimen significantly worsens back pain.The new yoga regimen significantly improves back pain. The new yoga regimen is not significantly effective at treating back pain.

Answer #1

a. one sample t-test

b. Population: All chronic back pain patients from the hospital that underwent the new regimen for 35 days.

Sample: Only 21 chronic back pain patients from the hospital that underwent the new regimen for 35 days

c. Null Hypothesis: There is no effect of new yoga regimen.

Alternative Hypothesis: It does affect the chronic back pain patients.

p-value= 0.00029

Decision: Here we are rejecting the null hypothesis and accepting the alternative hypothesis. That means the new yoga regime is good for chronic back pain patients and reducing the pain.

d. d=NA

r2= NA

e.The new yoga regimen significantly improves back pain.

Hospital administrators at a local hospital are interested in
quality of care. As such, they ask a random sample of patients that
have used the hospital's health care services to fill out a
questionnaire. The questionnaire has questions about the patient's
worry (negative, positive), the hospital staff's communication
skills (low, medium, high), and satisfaction with medical care. The
administrators are interested in how patient's worry and their
assessment of the hospital staff's communication impact their
satisfaction with medical care. The...
