Supplementary Handout: Writing Results of t-test / X² T-TEST PLAIN ENGLISH: We thought that seniors would probably participate in more extracurricular activities than Freshmen, because they have had more time at college to find groups and activities and to make friends to do things with. We did an experiment where we asked students how many activities they participated in, and found that this was true: seniors participated in a lot more extracurricular activities over a one month period than did freshmen. APA RESULTS SECTION: Extracurricular activities of college freshmen and seniors were compared using a t-test. It was predicted that seniors would participate in more extracurricular activities than would freshmen. Results supported this hypothesis: seniors ( M = 11.5, SD = 4.45) participated in significantly more extracurricular activities over a one month period than did freshmen ( M = 3.0, SD = 3.77), ( t (18) = 4.62, p < .001).
