Results Our first main effect, is the effect of observation type on the choice to take the stairs or escalator. The results are not significant, P = .501, however there is a trend here. In general, more subjects took the stairs when being overtly observed. About 41% of subjects took the stairs when being covertly observed, and about 46% of subjects took the stairs when being overtly observed. Here is our second predicted main effect, the effect of gender on the choice to take the stairs or escalator. Once again the results are not significant, P = .942. There is no evidence of a trend here. Overall, males and female took the stairs about the same amount. This is a table of the interaction effect between gender and observation type on

Unformatted text preview: the choice to take the stairs or use the escalator. • Though also not significant, there is a trend. The interaction effect was what researchers predicted. • Among males, overt observation increased stair usage (from about 53% to 55%), while among females, overt observation decreased stair usage (from about 47% to 45%). Conclusion • People are more likely to participate in non-organized exercise when being overtly observed. • Males are more likely to participate in non-organized exercise when being overtly observed. • Females are less likely to participate in non-organized exercise when being overtly observed.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
