The alternative hypothesis, which would be the H1, is participants will recall significantly more paired associates from visual stimulus presentations than from auditory stimulus presentations. The null hypothesis, which is Ho, is participants will recall paired associates at not significantly different levels when visual and auditory presentations are compared. Method Sample Number of participants is at 22 but we had to reduce to eighteen data sets because participants were not here both days of the experiment. The age range is from nineteen to fifty-four, were the mean age is twenty-eight point five with a modal age at twenty-three. We had four males and fourteen females that participated. The ethnicity of the participants was nine, white/Caucasian, seven African Americans, and two Hispanic Americans. All participants in this study are in college. In the study there was two parts. Part one was a visual status where the visual acuity experimental materials is reported as normal. The second part was an auditory status where the auditory acuity for experimental materials is reported as normal. Materials The materials needed for this experiment, if you were a participant, are white paper and either a pen or pencil to write down what the participant thought the paired associate was. What the researcher needs is to have a paper with the paired associates written on it, to be able to read off of to the participants the paired associates he or she came up with for the auditory
