    Using the Data Collection attached, perform the following statistical operations and compile your results in a Microsoft Word document:
    ? State a research (non-directional) hypothesis and a null hypothesis about the populations
    ? Determine the cutoff sample score of t at ±=.05
    ? Calculate a mean and variance for each sample of raw scores
    ? Calculate the pooled variance, the variance for each comparison distribution, and then the standard error term
    ? Determine the obtained value of t
    ? Conduct the hypothesis test
    ? Interpret and report on your findings (in English and statistical notation)

    Solution Summary

    The solution provides step-by-step method of performing a two-tailed hypothesis t-test of two samples. All the steps of hypothesis testing (formulation of null and alternate hypotheses, selection of significance level, choosing the appropriate test-statistic, decision rule, calculation of test-statistic and conclusion) have been explained and the statistical analysis has been shown in details. The calculations have also been shown in EXCEL for better understanding.
