1) You want to compare improvement in depression scores on the PHQ9 Quick Depression Assessment (on a scale of 027 where 0 represents no depression and 27 represents severe depression) between one group of 35 teenagers who participate in a singing class and a second group of 38 teenagers who participate in a boxing class. Mean improvement in depression scores over a 2month period are:
Change in depression score  Standard deviation  
Singing Class  5.72  1.43 
Boxing Class  8.46  2.19 
What statistic will show you how much the boxing class reduced the teenagers’ depression scores?
 a) R
 b) R^2
 c) r
 d) r^2
 e) p
 f) X^2
 g) d
 h) F
 i) t
2) Individuals experiencing depression were divided into three groups. Each group was counseled for different amounts of time (1 month, 6 months, or 12 months) to see how they scored on measures of psychological wellbeing.
What is the best test to find differences among the groups?
ttest of independent means  
ttest of dependent means  
ANOVA  
Chisquare  
Pearson r

b) More than two groups or multiple measurement points were employed in the study.  
c) The relationship tested is statistically significant.  
d) All of the above.  
e) None of the above. 
7) Equating a significant difference with a large difference is a mistake.

8) In an experiment with a treatment and control group, what does d = 2 mean?
a) The average participant in the experimental group did two standard deviations better on some measure than the average participant in the control group.  
b) The average participant in the experimental group did two standard deviations worse on some measure than the average participant in the control group. 
9) A large effect size might represent an unimportant result
True or False
10) To determine whether Adderall enhances studying, you give the drug to a group of 14 students and engage another 14 students as a control group. Both groups then solve 40 mathematical problems. The lowest score students can receive is zero; the highest is 40. Students who took Adderall received these scores: 32, 25, 17, 12, 17, 22, 27, 30, 27, 21, 19, 25, 23, 28. Students in the control group received these scores: 33, 21, 14, 20, 36, 11, 32, 12, 15, 18, 19, 22, 14, 13
For the Adderall group and rounding every answer to the nearest integer, what are the:
Mean: [“5”, “8”, “14”, “19”, “20”, “23”, “24”, “25”]
Median: [“5”, “8”, “14”, “19”, “20”, “23”, “24”, “25”, “17”]
Standard Deviation: [“5”, “8”, “14”, “19”, “20”, “23”, “24”, “25”]
For the control group and rounding every answer to the nearest integer, what are the:
Mean: [“5”, “8”, “14”, “19”, “20”, “23”, “24”, “25”]
Median: [“5”, “8”, “14”, “19”, “20”, “23”, “24”, “25”]
Standard Deviation: [“5”, “8”, “14”, “19”, “20”, “23”, “24”, “25”]
What is the d (using for your computations the rounded integers you previously derived):
[ Select ]
[“.2”, “.25”, “.275”, “.3”, “.35”, “.40”, “.425”, “.461”, “.48”, “”]
How would you analyze the data from this study?
