You will use these values in Question 2 below. [Answer here in complete sentences. Also insert the output from SPSS here. Replace this prompt and the prompts below, using as much space as necessary to answer questions.] Question 2 A z score for this sample is calculated as [(X – M) ÷ s]. Locate Case #53’s unstandardized total score (X) in the Data Editor. In the formula below, replace X, M, s, and ? to show how the z score in Ztotal is derived for Case #53. (X – M ) ÷ s = ? Question 3 Run Descriptives… on Ztotal. What are the mean and standard deviation of Ztotal? (Hint: “0E7” in SPSS is scientific notation for 0). Are the mean and standard deviation what you would expect? Justify your answer. [Answer here in complete sentences.

[Answer here in complete sentences.] Section 3: Case Studies of Null Hypothesis Testing Question 10 You are running a series of statistical tests in SPSS using the standard criterion for rejecting a null hypothesis. You obtain the following p values. Test 1 calculates group differences with a p value = .07. Test 2 calculates the strength of association between two variables with a p value = .50. Test 3 calculates group differences with a p value = .001. For each test below, state whether or not you reject the null hypothesis. For each test, also explain what your decision implies in terms of group differences (Test 1 and Test 3) and in terms of the strength of association between two variables (Test 2). Test 1 (group differences) = Test 2 (strength of association) = Test 3 (group differences) = Question 11 A researcher calculates a statistical test and obtains a p value of .86.
