Eight participants are randomly assigned to three treatment conditions: Cognitive Therapy (CT), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Interpersonal Therapy (IT). All participants complete the weekly treatment for 8 weeks. Participants take an anger test before and after the 8-week treatments.

Q can be found in Table A.9 using a k (number of groups) and dfWithin
16 - Calculate the HSD at both the .05 and .01 level, whatever values are above the HSD must be considered “honestly significantly different”.

From personal spreadsheet

Note = FCritical from Table A.8 (degrees of freedom of within and between) and HSD.01 from table A.9
Reject if FObtained is > FCritical

FCritical @ .05 = 3.49 and FCritical at .01 = 5.85
F(2, 21) = 11.65, p < .01

d. Should H0 be rejected? What should the researcher conclude?

The null hypothesis should be rejected that there is no difference between treatment methods because the calculation show that the treatments are statistically different.
