Suppose two camp counselors disagree about the effect of movies such as The Blair Witch Project. AI thinks that EXPOSURE to the ﬁlm will increase anxiety. Specifically, Al thinks that
the young student campers who have seen the film (Group 1) will have higher ANXIETY about
camping in the woods compared to student campers who have not seen the film (Group 2). Ned thinks that both groups will have equal anxiety.
They pick at random 4 student campers who have seen the film and 4 who have not seen it. Each camper's level of ANXIETY about camping in the woods. Assume that both groups have
population distributions that are approximately normal, with equal variances. The data obtained are shown in TABLE 1 below, where i represents FILM EXPOSURE, and X
is the level of ANXIETY. Perform the appropriate One Way ANOVA on these data. NOTE: X = 4 SSro'rAL , the sum of squares for X, is 96 x1=1 x2=7 TABLE 1
