Textbook Problem

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
*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
*.*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.
