In each of the following studies, a single sample’s mean is being compared to a population with a known mean, but an
unknown variance. For each study, decide whether the result is significant.

CHAPTER 8 CONCEPTUAL
(Your answers should demonstrate understanding of course material. Each response should be a few
sentences/paragraph.)

Make up a brief example of a research study that would be tested using a T-test for Dependent means. 2.05 or p<. What does p<.1.01 represent conceptually? What is the statistical rationale for using p<.01 in the hypothesis testing process? 3.05 represent conceptually? What does p<. . What is the difference between a 1-tailed and a 2-tailed test? When would you use a 1-tailed test instead of a 2-tailed test? Provide an example to illustrate the difference. Describe in a few sentences.
