Question

Case Study 14-1

A professor of women's studies is interested in determining if stress affects the menstrual cycle. Ten women are randomly sampled for an experiment and randomly divided into two groups. One of the groups is subjected to high stress for two months while the other lives in a relatively stress-free environment. The professor measures the menstrual cycle (in days) of each woman during the second month. The following data are obtained.

 High stress 20 23 18 19 22  n1-1 Relatively stress free 26 31 25 26 30 n2-1

__          8.   Refer to Case Study 14-1. The obtained value of the appropriate statistic is _________.

 a. tobt = -4.73 b. tobt = -4.71 c. tobt = -3.05 d. tobt = -0.47

____      9.   Refer to Case Study 14-1. The df for determining tcrit are _________.

 a. 4 b. 9 c. 8 d. 3

____   10.   Refer to Case Study 14-1. Using a = .052 tail, tcrit = _________.

 a. +2.262 b. +2.306 c. ±2.262 d. ±2.306

____   11.   Refer to Case Study 14-1. Using a = .052 tail, your conclusion is _________.

 a. accept H0; stress does not affect the menstrual cycle b. retain H0; we cannot conclude that stress affects the menstrual cycle c. retain H0; stress affects the menstrual cycle d. reject H0; stress affects the menstrual cycle

Case Study 14-2

A health educator wants to evaluate the effect of a dental film on the frequency with which children brush their teeth. A random selection of 8 children are used for the experiment. First, a baseline of the number of times the children brush their teeth over a month's period is established. Next, the children are shown the dental film and again the number of teeth brushings are recorded for a month. The following data are recorded.

 Subject 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 After film 28 29 25 30 25 27 28 24 Baseline 25 28 22 30 26 24 25 22

____   14.   Refer to Case Study 14-2. The obtained value of the appropriate statistic is _________.

 a. -3.13 b. 3.14 c. 3.58 d. 3.57

____   15.   Refer to Case Study 14-2. The df for determining tcrit equal _________.

 a. 8 b. 16 c. 7 d. 14

____   16.   Refer to Case Study 14-2. Using a = .052 tail, tcrit = _________.

 a. +2.365 b. ±2.365 c. ±2.145 d. +2.365

____   17.   Refer to Case Study 14-2. Using a = 0.052 tail, what do you conclude?

 a. retain H0; the film has no effect on the frequency of tooth brushing b. reject H0; the film affects the frequency of tooth brushing c. accept H0; the film has no effect on the frequency of tooth brushing d. reject H0; chance alone is a reasonable explanation of the data
