Textbook Problem

A sample of n = 16 individuals is selected from a population with a mean of μ = 80. A treatment is administered to the sample and. after treatment, the sample mean is found to be M = 86 with a standard deviation of s = 8.a. Does the sample provide sufficient evidence to conclude that the treatment has a significant effect? Test with α = .05.b. Compute Cohen's d and r2 to measure the effect size.с. Find the 95% confidence interval for the population mean after treatment.

a.

To determine

To test: Whether there is sufficient evidence to infer that the treatment has significant effect.

Explanation

Given info:

A sample of 16 individual is selected from a population with mean 80. The sample mean, and standard deviation (s) are 86 and 8 respectively. One-tailed hypothesis test using α=0.05 is to be performed.

Calculations:

Test hypothesis is given below:

Null Hypothesis:

H0:μ80

Alternative Hypothesis:

H1:μ>80

Degrees of freedom:

d.f=n1=161=15

Critical value:

For a one-tailed test with α=0.05 and df=15, the critical value (CV)  is obtained from the t-table as t=±2.131.

Test statistic:

The t-statistics is,

t=Mμsm

Calculate sm using the formula:

sm=sn

b.

To determine

To find: The Cohen’s d and r2 to measure the effect size.

c.

To determine

To construct: The 95% confidence interval for the population mean.
