Fill in the following for a possible study with one independent variable (IV) with two conditions/treatments and a dependent variable (DV) that is measured on a continuous scale (interval or ratio):
Independent variable = ______________
Condition A = ______________
Condition B = ______________
Dependent variable = _______________
How do you know this DV is measured on a continuous scale?
Now, how would you word the null hypothesis for your sample study?
How would you word the alternative hypothesis for your sample study?
What alpha level would you set to test your hypothesis? Why?
Independent variable = education levelal
Condition A = higher education level leads to higher income
Condition B = higher education level does not lead to higher income
Dependent variable = higher income
How do you know this DV is measured on ...
