Textbook Problem

a. A repeated-measures study with a sample of n = 9 participants produces a mean difference of M = 3 with a standard deviation of s = 6. Use a two-tailed hypothesis test with α = .05 to determine whether it is likely that this sample came from a population with μ D = 0.

b. Now assume that the sample mean difference is μ D = 12, and once again visualize the sample distribution. Use a two-tailed hypothesis test with α = .05 to determine whether it is likely that this sample came from a population with μ D = 0.

c. Explain how the size of the sample mean difference influences the likelihood of finding a significant mean difference.

a.

To determine
Sample came from a population with μD=0.

Explanation

Given info:

Numbers of participants in the sample are n=9. Mean difference is MD=3.

Sample standard deviation is s=6. Level of significance for two tailed test is α=0.05.

Calculation:

Null Hypothesis: Sample came from a population with μD=0.

Alternate Hypothesis: Sample came from a population with μD0

In repeated-measures study, t statistic under null hypothesis is given by:

t=MDμDsn=3069=1

b.

To determine
Sample came from a population with μD=0.

c.

To determine

To explain: How the size of the sample mean difference influences the likelihood of finding a significant mean difference.
