Question

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 = .05), and the decision is to reject the null hypothesis. If the researcher switched to a one-tailed test using the same sample, what decision would be made?

A. Definitely reject the null hypothesis with ( a = .05) and maybe reject with ( a = .01)

B. Definitely reject the null hypothesis with ( a = .05) and with ( a = .01)

C. Definitely fail to reject the null hypothesis with either (a = .05) or with ( a = .01)

D. It is impossible to predict the outcome of the one-tailed test.

Question #5

A researcher evaluates a treatment effect using a one-tailed hypothesis test with ( a = .05), and the decision is to reject the null hypothesis. If the researcher switched to a two-tailed test using the same sample, what decision would be made?

A. Definitely reject the null hypothesis with either ( a = .05) or with ( a = .01)

B. Definitely reject the null hypothesis with ( a = .05) and maybe reject with ( a = .01)

C. Might reject the null hypothesis with ( a = 0.5) but might not

D. Definitely fail to reject the null hypothesis with either ( a = .05) or with ( a = .01)

Answer #1

3) the critical value z_a at a =0.01 is determined form the standard normal table. Therefore z_a= 2.33. Then the critical region or rejection region is given by z>2.33. Option a is correct.

4) at two tailed test, the level of significance a=0.05. We reject the null hypothesis. The we defintilty reject the null hypothesis at level of significance a=0.05 but may not be a =0.01 in one tailed test.

Option a is correct.

5) in a one tailed test level of significance a=0.05, we reject the null hypothesis. But in two tailed test we may be rejected or fail to rejected the null hypothesis at a=0.05 & 0.01.

Option c is correct

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 =
1.652, what decision should be made? Show steps.
a.
With a = .05, fail to reject H0 for either a
one-tailed or a two-tailed test
b.
With a = .05, reject H0 for either...

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?

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...

Some researchers claim that herbal supplements improve human
memory. To test this claim, a researcher selects a sample of n = 25
college students. Each student is given herbal supplements daily
for 6 weeks and then all the participants are given a standardized
memory test. For the population, scores on the tests are normally
distributed with µ = 70 and σ= 15. The sample of n = 25 students
had a mean score of M = 75. Can we conclude...

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...

An independent-measures research study uses two samples, a total
of 23 participants in both samples combined. If the data produce a
t statistic of t = 2.10, then which of the following is the correct
decision for a two-tailed hypothesis test?
Cannot answer without additional information
Reject the null hypothesis with a = .05 but fail to reject with
a = .01.
Reject the null hypothesis with either a = .05 or a = .01.

An independent-measures research study uses two samples, each
with n = 8 participants. If the data produce a t statistic of t =
2.50, then which of the following is the correct decision for a
two-tailed hypothesis test? Group of answer choices Reject the null
hypothesis with a = .05 but fail to reject with a = .01. cannot
answer without additional information Reject the null hypothesis

1.- A researcher obtains t = 2.25 for a
repeated-measures study using a sample of n = 10
participants. Based on this t value, what is the correct
decision for a two-tailed test?
a.
Reject the null hypothesis with α = .05 but not with
α = .01
b.
Reject the null hypothesis with both α = .05 and
α = .01
c.
Fail to reject the null hypothesis with both α = .05
and α = .01
d.
Cannot...
