Chapter 7 and 8

TermDefinition
Confidence Intervals a range of possible values for the parameter of function we are estimating. This constitutes an interval estimate. When we calculate a range of possible intervals, we can be more confident that the parameter we are estimating is in the interval
95% intervals the confidence level has a lower limit and an upper limit and values between these limits are “in” the confidence level
how to calculate a confidence interval the difference of the mean plus/minus critical value times standard error
null hypothesis no difference. H0
alternative hypothesis difference. H1
"p" value the probability of observing the effect or difference we obtained from our sample.
reject the null hypothesis if: p value is lower than alpha (0.05 usually)
retain the null hypothesis if: p value is higher than alpha (0.05 usually)
effect size indexes “how big” a difference or effect we have detected is regardless of level of statistical difference
when to use a one-sample t test works well with both large and small samples and when we don’t know population standard deviation
reject null hypothesis when: When t is larger than critical value
when to use independent t tests used when we have two separate samples (example – a control group and an experimental group)
null hypothesis population means are equal
alternative hypothesis population means are not equal
paired samples t test observations from one sample are paired with or linked to observations of second sample (ex – a pretest and post test scores of students)
Cohen's D Effect size index
Cohen's D for two sample difference of the means divided by pooled SD
Cohen's D for one sample difference of the means divided by SD
For Cohen's D: Value of d <0.20 0.20 – 0.50 0.50 – 0.80 >0.80 For Cohen's D: Effect Size Very Small Small Medium Large
eta squared useful effect-size index for the t test
Calculate eta squared t squared divided by t squared plus degrees of freedom
ANOVA Analysis of Variance - extension of the independent samples t test to three or more groups.
between-groups variation or treatment effect ANOVA partitions or “analyzes” the variation in the dependent variable into two sources.
within-groups variation or error variance ANOVA -- Some of the variation is due to differences among scores within separate groups
In ANOVA, MSs are: actual “variances being analyzed”
calculate a mean square (MS) for each source of variation by: dividing the sum of squares for the particular source by appropriate degrees of freedom
F ratio used to test the hypothesis of equality among the group means is a ratio of two variance estimates, in this case, the MS between groups or MSb divided by the MS within or MSw
the estimate of the population variance treating all scores as a single dataset The total degrees of freedom are N-1, and the total sum of squares is found by DEVSQ function. When that is divided by the total degrees of freedom
within-groups sum of squares is the sum of the squared deviations from the group mean for all scores within that group
between-groups sum of squares is: based on the deviations between the group means and the overall mean
null hypothesis for ANOVA the k population means are equivalent
alternative hypothesis for ANOVA specifies that the difference between at least one pair of means is not zero
The one way ANOVA compares: compares three or more means simultaneously
The one-way ANOVA assumes: __________ assumes interval or ratio data, independence, normality of distribution and equality of variance
effect-size index for the one-way ANOVA (eta squared) is: the between-groups sum of squares divided by the total sum of squares.
The effect size index for the one-way ANOVA shows: shows how much of the total variation in the dependent variable explained or “accounted for” by “Treatment” effects/differences among the means. If value= 0.20, about 20% of the variation in the dv is accounted for by knowledge of treatment condition
Fisher LSD test least significant difference. a way to control for the experimentwise error rate.
Protected t test overall alpha level for all comparisons is held at Acrit. alpha level is protected by using the within-groups MS and the degrees of freedom from all groups rather than the pooled standard deviation from the two groups being compared.
Protected t test continued compare this “least significant difference” to the actual differences among the means. Any difference larger in absolute value than LSD is statistically significant
Tukey HD test “Honestly Significant Difference” –uses the “studentized range statistic” Test is somewhat more conservative than LSD test. A difference between 2 means has to be larger to be significant w/the HSD test than the LSD test
Bonferroni Corrections adjustment to the alpha level to control for the experimentwise error rate. In general, if you perform k tests and want overall protection at the level of a, then you should use a/k as the criterion for significance for each comparison
Partial eta squared appropriate effect-size index for the two way ANOVA
factors In ANOVA terminology- independent variables are:
independent variables in ANOVA Each independent variable must have at least two levels. We are interested in examining the effects of these factors on the dependent variable separately and in combination. We call the separate effects main effects & the combined effect an interaction

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

• SPACEBAR - flip the current card
• LEFT ARROW - move card to the Don't know pile
• RIGHT ARROW - move card to Know pile
• BACKSPACE - undo the previous action

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
