    A sample of 30 patients was studied in an effort to assess agency' preparedness for delivery of mental health services to African Americans. A nursing researcher and counselor decided to collaborate and conduct the study using the Clinical Attitudes, Knowledge, and Skills Inventory (CAKSI) to assess preparedness for delivery of mental health services to African-Americans. One of the scaled items has a mean equal to 82 and a standard deviation of 12. Construct and interpret 95% and 99% confidence intervals. Assume that the investigators increased their sample size to 100. Perform the same tests and describe how your conclusions would differ.
