a. ±1.711

b. -1.711

c. ±2.064

d. -2.064

Question 3

A researcher selects a sample of 32 participants who are assigned to participate in a study with one group. What are the degrees of freedom for this test?

a. 32

b. 30

c. 31

d. There is not enough information to answer this question.

a. different participants are assigned to each of two groups.

b. the population variance is unknown.

c. participants are observed one time in a given group.

d. all of the above.

Question 5

A researcher finds that the mean difference in productivity between employees working the morning shift (n = 16) and the night shift (n = 10) is 5.0 units, and the estimated standard error for the difference is 2.7 units. If the null hypothesis states that there is no difference in productivity, then is this result significant at a .05 level of significance for a two-tailed test?

a. Yes, this result is significant.

b. No, this result is not significant.

c. There is not enough information to answer this question.

d. None of the above

Question 6

A researcher reports that the effectiveness of a new marketing campaign significantly increased sales compared with the previous campaign strategy, t(49) = 2.562, p < .05. Use η 2 to interpret the effect size for this result.

a. 12% of the variability in marketing effectiveness can be accounted for by the new marketing strategy.

b. 12% of the standard error can be accounted for by the effectiveness of the marketing strategy.

c. Marketing effectiveness shifted 0.12 standard deviations above the mean in the population.

d. 12% of the variability in marketing effectiveness can be accounted for by the new marketing strategy and 12% of the standard error can be accounted for by the effectiveness of the marketing strategy.

Question 7

Which of the following summarizes a t test that was significant and associated with a large effect size?

a. t(22) = 3.02, p < .05, d = .36

c. t(60) = 1.76, p > .05, d = .45

d. t(12) = 2.95, p < .05, d = .82

Question 8

Each of the following is an advantage for using the related-samples design, EXCEPT

a. it can be more practical.

b. it minimizes standard error.

c. it increases the power of a research design.

d. it increases the variability measured in a study.

a. 31%

b. 34%

c. 37%

d. 31% to 37%

Question 10

A researcher concludes that stress levels are higher following a major versus a minor traffic accident (95% confidence interval [CI] 1.86-3.02). If the null hypothesis stated that there would be no difference (null hypothesis: µ = 0), then what is the effect size for this confidence interval?

a. Between 1.86% and 3.02% of the variability in stress levels can be accounted for by type of traffic accident.

b. Ratings of stress shifted more than 1.86 points in the population.

c. Ratings of stress shifted between 1.86 and 3.02 points in the population.

d. There is not enough information to answer this question.

a. 6.4

b. 7.0

c. 10.6

d. 11.2

Question 12

a. 99% CI 3.5, 3.9

b. 99% CI 3.2, 4.2

c. 99% CI 3.1, 4.3

d. There is not enough information to answer this question.

a. standard error

b. estimated standard error

c. estimated standard error for the difference

d. estimated standard error for the difference scores

Question 14

a. The estimate will be more precise.

b. The estimate will be less precise.

c. The precision of his estimate will not change.

d. It depends on the size of the population.
