    Central Mich., PSY 612

    Excerpt: ... APA Style and Format - Example Table 1 Means and Standard Deviations of Emotion-Oriented Coping Scale Score. Men (n = M Emotion Note: d = *; rpb = *. ) SD Women (n = M ) SD t p CI95 An independent-samples t test was conducted to evaluate the hypothesis that students talk more under a high-stress condition (anticipating questions from a panel of measurement specialists) as opposed to a low-stress condition (anticipating taking a personality measure). The test was significant, t(28) = 2.43, p = .022. Students in the high-stress condition (M = 22.07, SD = 27.14, n = 20) on the average talked less than those in the low-stress condition (M = 45.20, SD = 24.97, n = 20). With 95% confidence, we can say that the true mean difference between two conditions is between * and *. In addition to testing the hypothesis that group differences are statistically significant, we calculated the effect size (d) of the obtained differences. The difference between two group means are high (d = .79), indicating two group mea ...
