  1. A group of 30 participants is divided in half based on their self-rating of the vividness of their visual imagery. Each participant is tested on how many colors of objects he or she can correctly recall from a briefly seen display. The results of this experiment are below. (Note: You will need one column in SPSS for the IV with two levels [vivid/less vivid] and one for the DV.)

Enter the data into SPSS and perform an independent samples t-test of the null hypothesis that vividness of visual imagery does not affect the recall of colors; use alpha = .01 (or 99% confidence), two-tailed. (Hint: The default alpha level is not .01; see options in the test menu.) What is your statistical conclusion?

  1. An educator has invented a new way to teach geometry to high school students. To test this new teaching method, the educator matches 16 tenth-graders into 8 pairs based on their grades in previous math courses. Then the students in each pair are randomly assigned to either the new method or the traditional method. At the end of a full semester of geometry training, all students take same standard high school geometry test. The scores for each student in this hypothetical experiment are as follows:

 

 

 

Traditional

Perform a paired-samples t-test for this experiment (p = .01 or 99% confidence, two-tailed). Is there a significant difference between the two teaching methods?
