Research Design A: problems 4-8

A researcher was interested in the effects of sexual arousal on the ability to concentrate, and also wondered whether gender and age are important factors. The researcher had participants read passages that 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 a proofreading task; the researcher measured the number of errors detected on the task.

4.    What type of statistical procedure should the researcher use to answer her 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 the Dependent Variable

a.    Sexual Arousal
b.    Gender
c.    Concentration
d.    Age

7.    Which of the following represents  the 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 a 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
