Research Design A: problems 4-8

A researcher was interested in the effects of sexual arousal on the ability to concentrate, and also wondered if gender and age are important factors or not. The researcher had participants read passages which were low, medium, or high in sexual arousal content. The participants included both males and females and were divided into three age categories (18-24, 25-35, and 36-50 years). After reading the passage, concentration was measured by the proofreading task; researcher measured the number of errors detected on task.

4. What kind of statistical procedure must the researcher use to answer the problems?

a. Standard Deviation

b. Independent Sample t test

c. Correlation

d. Factorial Anova

5. Which of the following are the Independent Variables:

a. Gender, Sexual Arousal, Age

b. Gender, Age, Concentration

c. Sexual Arousal, Age, Concentration

d. Sexual Arousal, Concentration, Gender

6. Which of the following is Dependent Variable

a. Sexual Arousal

b. Gender

c. Concentration

d. Age

7. Which of the following represents  design?

a. 3 x 3 x 2

b. 3 x 3

c. 2 x 3

d. 2 x 3 x 1

8. Which of the following represents the possible interaction?

a. Gender affects concentration

b. Sexual arousal affects concentration

c. Sexual arousal affects concentration but only for males

d. Only high levels of sexual arousal affects concentration
