1.      (25 points) A sports psychologist gave a questionnaire about healthy eating habits to randomly selected professional athletes. The results are displayed below. Using the .05 significance level, is there a difference in healthy eating habits among professionals in the three sports?

 

Baseball Players              Basketball Players              Football Players

            32                                    27                                        27

            35                                    30                                        20

 

a.       Make a graph for the data set.

 

b.      Use the five steps of hypothesis testing (report results in APA format).

 

c.       Figure the effect size of this study.

 

d.      Conduct a planned contrast for Baseball versus Football players (using Tukey’s HSD).

 

 

2.      (25 points) A researcher is interested in the effects of sleep deprivation and caffeine intake on mood. Participants were randomly assigned to a sleep condition (normal or deprived) and a caffeine condition (0 cups, 2 cups, or 4 cups). After the manipulations, mood was measured (such that higher numbers indicated better mood). The results were as follows:

 

               Normal Condition                            Deprived Condition

            0 cups  2 cups  4 cups                          0 cups  2 cups  4 cups

                16       18         18                                0          5          6

                17       20         17                                6          4          8

                18       18         16                                4          5          8

 

Analyze these data using a factorial analysis of variance and including R2 for each effect.

 

3.      (25 points) A researcher was interested in whether college GPA (X) would predict starting salary after college (Y). (For simplicity, salary was converted to a 100-point scale.) The participants’ scores were:

 

            X                      Y         

            2.25                 55

            1.75                 23

            3.25                 80

            3.75                 42       

            M = 2.75          M = 50

 

a.       Report the correlation and linear prediction equation.

 

b.      Make a graph with the regression line.

 

c.       Figure the standardized regression coefficient.

 

 

4.      (25 points) An advertising firm wanting to target people with strong desires for success conducted a study to see if such people differed in the types of television shows they watched. Randomly selected participants recorded the shows they watched for a week, then their desire for success was assessed, and finally they were divided into two groups. Low Success seekers watched 8 comedies, 15 romances, 6 documentaries, 13 dramas, and 3 news shows. High Success seekers watched 3 comedies, 3 romances, 9 documentaries, 7 dramas, and 8 news shows. Using the .05 significance level, is the distribution of type of shows watched different for participants having high and low desires for success?
