1) alpha = 0.05
2) The probability that we are wrong in our decision of rejecting the null hypothesis is 5%.
3) All of the above
4) We decide to reject the null hypothesis at the 0.05 level of significance.

2. A gambler has developed two strategies for betting in the game of blackjack. To test these strategies, he decides to go gambling on a casino boat. He plays five sessions of blackjack with each strategy, with each session consisting of 20 hands. He then records the profits of each session. Please note that a negative profit indicates a loss. The computer output used in this analysis is shown below. The goal of the gambler is to determine, if possible, which of the two betting strategies will result in a higher mean profit.

TWO-SAMPLE T TESTS FOR PROFIT BY STRATEGY

NULL HYPOTHESIS: DIFFERENCE = 0
ALTERNATIVE HYP: DIFFERENCE < 0

Which of the following interpretations of the 95% confidence interval given above is correct?

1) At the 95% confidence level, we cannot determine which of the two strategies results in a higher mean profit.
2) We are 95% confident that the mean profit gained using strategy 2 exceeds the mean profit gained using strategy 1.
3) Since the interval contains only negative values, we are 95% confident that the mean profit of both strategies is negative.
4) We are 95% confident that the mean profit gained using strategy 1 exceeds the mean profit gained using strategy 2.

1. The statement that the probability of a Type I error is 0.05 means

Type I error is a "false positive": it is incorrectly rejecting the null hypothesis when it is actually true. It is symbolized by the symbol alpha. All three statements listed are true, so the answer is (3).

R2 is a statistical measure which:
a) determines how important one variable is in explaining the value of another variable
b) tests the true value of a variable
c) determines how well an equation can estimate the relationship between one variable and a set of other variables

This week, you will explore the hypothesis that recall will vary as a function of stress levels.
Conduct an ANOVA comparing participants' recall at Time 1 across all three stress-level conditions (low, medium, and high).
Conduct post hoc tests if needed, using the Tukey method.
