Sample size has been calculated as follows

When we go for a sample study, we select a sample of adequate size so that we can control the sampling error which might have been crept in while collecting a sample.

In an experiment all variables are ideally held constant and then the independent variable is manipulated and changes in the dependent variable are measured. However, it is not possible to keep sampling error, absolutely constant. This means that there may be difference in observation in the dependent variables. The point at which it is decided to reject the chance explanation and attribute responsibility for the difference to the independent variables. The point at which it is decided to reject the chance explanation and attribute responsibility for the difference to the independent variable is called the significance level. Here, we have taken a significance level of 0.13. it means that we are accepting that if the experiment is conducted, then on the 13% of the occasions the observed difference might be expected to occur but chance and we are 95% confident that the difference found is not the product of chance. Respect to the estimates concerning the population parameters. It means that acceptable error e = 0.13. Sample size: At 95% level of confidence, precision value=0.13, total population is considered to be Z=95% n=99 e=0.13

S.D= Range of population 6 Range = difference between highest and lowest score Range =5-1 =4 S.D= 4/6 = 0.67

= 99 Sampling Error: In any study involving the sampling process there would be a certain amount of inaccuracy in the data collected. This inaccuracy is termed as sampling error. Hypothesis: Experimental Research It forms the basis of psychological research. The main purpose of this is to establish a cause and effect relationship.
