I. Descriptive Statistics
a. Report the M and SD for all study variables (except for demographic information).
i. Mostly this is going to be the mean and SD for the dependent variable. However, the political psychology group would report descriptive information about the initial political affiliation questions here.
ii. Interpret these descriptive statistics if you can…
b. Inferential Statistics
i. Please state the following: “To test all study hypotheses we adopted an alpha level of .05.”
ii. State the inferential statistic used to test the hypotheses:
Options: 1) Independent-samples t-test
2) ANOVA (what type of ANOVA, e.g., One-way, 2 x 2 etc.)
iii. Describe the results of the test. There was a significant main effect of self-esteem such that… There was not a main effect of gender… The interaction between self-esteem and gender was not significant.
The results of an independent samples T-test revealed that salesclerks who waited on well-dressed customers (M = 43.38, SD = 10.11) took significantly less time, t (14) = 2.61, p = .021, to respond to customers than salespeople who waited on customers dressed in sloppy clothing (M = 63.25, SD = 12.54).
Examples in Book (“Translating Statistics into Words”):
• Independent Samples T-Test- p.229
• One Way ANOVA- p. 259
• Factorial ANOVA- p. 295
iv. Create a graph or figure to depict the nature of your results.
