Two sample t tests are designed to learn if there is support for a relationship between variables when:

B

The degrees of freedom for the one sample t test are:
Free
Multiple Choice

C

Simple ANOVA is described as "an omnibus test." What does this mean?
Free
Multiple Choice

D

The two sample dependent t test should be used when two samples consist of the same people or objects measured "before" and "after" some event occurs, or when two samples consist of
Multiple Choice
Which statistical test is sometimes used to determine if a research sample is sufficiently representative in relation to some potentially confounding variable?
Multiple Choice
Using a measurement scale believed to produce interval level measurement, an instructor wishes to learn if the variable "attitude toward statistics" will show improvement over the course of a semester in her class. She administers the scale the first and last days of the class and compares the pairs of scores for every student. What test should she use to learn if there is statistical support for her hypothesis that students will show improved attitudes following her course?
Multiple Choice
When do researchers use t distributions and the family of t tests to seek support for a relationship between variables rather than simply computing confidence intervals based on the normal distribution (as described in Chapter 5)?
Multiple Choice
Multifactor ANOVA is appropriate for use when there are:
Multiple Choice
The non-parametric test that requires at least ordinal level data and that examines the entire distribution of a variable within two samples (and identifies the point at which the two samples differ the most) is:
Multiple Choice
A social worker wishes to examine the effectiveness of an innovative method for the treatment of people with a diagnosis of pedophilia. She suspects that it may improve symptoms among some clients, but may make them worse among others. However, she would like to learn if the intervention makes a statistically significant difference in client behaviors. What statistical test should she use?
Multiple Choice
A non-parametric alternative to the one sample t test is:
