B. depends on the kind of test you want to run. C. is largely the same across a wide variety of procedures D. has little to do with whatever data you collect. 2. If data are reasonably consistent with the null hypothesis, we are likely to: A. fail to reject the null hypothesis B. reject the null hypothesis C. accept the null hypothesis D. accept the alternative hypothesis E. both a and c. 3. We are most likely to reject a null hypothesis if the test statistic we compute is: A. very small. B. equal to the number of observations in the sample. C. quite extreme.

The distribution of sample means for samples of size n = 4 selected from this population would have a standard error of: A. 2 B. 8 C. 4 D. 80 E. None of the above. 5. A sample of n = 16 scores is obtained from a population with µ = 70 and σ = 20. If the sample mean is M = 75, then the Zscore corresponding to the sample mean is: A. Z =.50 B. Z = 2.00 C. Z = 1.00
2 D. Z = Which of the following pairings is correct? A. Type I; Type II :: α; β B. Type I; Type II :: α; 1 β C. Type I; Type II :: β; α D. Type I; Type II :: 1 α;1 β 7. Choose the best answer. If we erroneously conclude that motorists are more likely to honk at low status cars than high status cars, we: A. have made a Type II error. B. have made a Type I error. C. have made a Type I error, and would have made that conclusion 5 percent of the time if the null hypothesis were true. D. would have made that conclusion 5 percent of the time if the null hypothesis were true. E. Both A and B. 8. A researcher was interested in seeing if males or females in large lecture classes fell asleep more during inclass videos. The null hypothesis of this study is: A. males will fall asleep more than females B. females will fall asleep more than males. C. males and females fall asleep at the same rate. D. More information is needed. 9. Professor Lowe expected that her graduate student TAs would come significantly earlier to all scheduled appointments compared to her undergraduate TAs, and planned to run a onetailed test to see if their arrival times were much earlier.

With α =.01, what is the critical t value for a onetailed, onesample ttest with n = 30? A. t = B. t = C. t = D. t = A research study uses a single sample of participants to evaluate the effect of a treatment.

Sample means are randomly distributed. B. More likely. The sampling distribution of the mean would be wider if the sample were smaller, so sample means would be more likely to be farther from the population mean. C. More likely.

At α =.05, which of the following is the most sensible conclusion? A. At α =.05, the results are statistically insignificant, telling us that the the effect of economic incentives is also practically insignificant. B. At α =.05, the results are statistically significant, telling us that the the effect of economic incentives is also practically significant. C. At α =.05, the results are statistically insignificant. However, this does not determine the practical significance of the findings. D. At α =.05, the results are statistically significant. However, this does not determine the practical significance of the findings. 42. As the standard deviation increases, the standard error: A. Increases, resulting in a smaller test statistic. B. Decreases, resulting in a smaller test statistic. C. Increases, resulting in a larger test statistic. D. Decreases, resulting in a larger test statistic. 43. What does it mean for a result to be statistically significant?
10 A. The result is too large to be consistent with chance variability. B. The result proves that our study design was unbiased. C. The data from the study were within the margin of error. D.

B. a measure of how much difference is reasonable to expect between two sample means if the null hypothesis is true C. Both A. and B. D. None of these. 46. Ourtown Health Department reported that the height of women in the city is approximately normally distributed with a mean of 5 feet, 4 inches (i.e., 64 inches) and a standard deviation of 3 inches. Suppose we select a random sample of five women from our school, measure the height of each, and calculate the sample mean. If we wished to know whether the height of women at our school is typical of the height of women in Ourtown, how should we compare our sample data to information we have about the Ourtown population distribution? A. We should compare the sample mean to the population distribution of Ourtown women as we do with an individual score. B. We should compare each individual score in our sample, one at a time, to the population of individual scores. C. There really isn t a way to make any worthwhile comparison. D. We should compare this sample mean to a sampling distribution of all possible means for samples of 5 women from the population of women in Ourtown. 47. Which of the following statements about the distribution of sample means is completely correct? A. Regardless of the size of your sample, the distribution of sample means will be normal.

The distribution of sample means will be normal if the population is normal and sample sizes are large about n = 10. D. The distribution of sample means will be normal if and only if the sample sizes are large (about n = 30 or n = 35). E. All of these are wrong in some way. 48. We want to study the mean difference in autonomy between firstborn and secondborn children. Instead of taking a random sample of children we take a random sample of families and sort the children into first and secondborn. The dependent variable is a measure of autonomy. To investigate the topic of interest, the experiment would most likely employ: A. a repeated measures analysis. B. a Ztest. References C. an independent measures analysis. D.
