2.     Identify and solve this problem by hand.

The head of public safety notices that the average driving speed at a particular intersection averages μ = 35 mph with a standard deviation of σ = 7.5 mph. After a school speed limit sign of 20 mph is placed at the intersection, the first 40 cars travel past at an average speed of 32 mph. Using the .01 significance level, was there a significant change in driving speed?

4.     You will have to use a combination of StatCrunch and hand calculations (e.g., effect sizes) to solve the following problems.

A team of cognitive psychologists studying the effects of sleep deprivation on short-term memory decay had eight participants stay in a sleep lab for two days. Four participants were randomly assigned to a condition in which they were not permitted to sleep during that period, while the other four participants were allowed to sleep when they wanted to. At the end of the two days, the participants completed a short-term memory task that yielded the results in the table that follows. Using the .05 significance level, did sleep deprivation reduce short-term memory?

7                                  9

8                                  8

7                                  11

9                                  7

a.      Create the appropriate graph for this problem.

b.      Use the five steps of hypothesis testing.

5.     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?

6.     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

20        20        17                                3          4          6

19        19        17                                2          2          7

18        18        16                                4          5          8

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

7.     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.

Using the .05 significance level, is the distribution of type of shows watched different for participants having high and low desires for success?
