The researchers cited in the previous problem (Liguori & Robinson. 2001) also examined the effect of caffeine on response time in the driving simulator. In a similar study, researchers measured reaction time 30 minutes after participants consumed one 6-ounce cup of coffee. Using the same driving simulation task, for which the distribution of reaction times is normal with μ = 400 msec, and σ = 40, they obtained a mean of M = 392 for a sample of n = 36 participants. a. Are the data sufficient to conclude that caffeine has a significant effect on reaction time? Use a two-tailed test with α = . 05. b . Compute Cohen’s d to estimate the size of the effect. c. Write a sentence describing the outcome of the hypothesis test and the measure of effect size as it would appear in a research report.

The researchers cited in the previous problem (Liguori & Robinson. 2001) also examined the effect of caffeine on response time in the driving simulator. In a similar study, researchers measured reaction time 30 minutes after participants consumed one 6-ounce cup of coffee. Using the same driving simulation task, for which the distribution of reaction times is normal with μ = 400 msec, and σ = 40, they obtained a mean of M = 392 for a sample of n = 36 participants.

a. Are the data sufficient to conclude that caffeine has a significant effect on reaction time? Use a two-tailed test with α = .05.

b. Compute Cohen’s d to estimate the size of the effect.

c. Write a sentence describing the outcome of the hypothesis test and the measure of effect size as it would appear in a research report.
