Week 5 final project lab | stastistics for behavioral science lab

Final Project

Read the following hypotheses:

  • Confidence in recall differs depending on the level of stress.
  • Recall for participants in high-stress conditions will deteriorate over time.
  • Boys will have higher levels of confidence than girls.

In a 1- to 2-page Microsoft Word document, for each hypothesis listed above, indicate:

  • Describe how a Type I error might occur, given the context of the assignment. Describe how a Type II error might occur, given the context of the assignment (i.e., if my hypothesis was that women had higher levels of empathy than men, a Type I error might occur if I found significant results with women scoring higher on empathy than men, when, in the general population that is not the case; a Type II error might occur if I found no differences in empathy between men and women when, in the general population women score higher on empathy than men).
  • Whether the appropriate analysis would be a one-tailed test or a two-tailed test
