The parent educator conducted a small study to examine thepotential effect of the 6-week infant care classes on anxiety as measured on a 10-item scale at 6months post-partum. A composite score ranging from 0 to 10 was computed from the scale foreach subject with 10 indicating the highest level of anxiety. The parent educator recruited 10expectant first-time mothers to participate in the infant care classes and 12 expectant first-timemothers with similar demographics who do not participate in the infant care classes. At sixmonths after giving birth, all participants were surveyed on their level of anxiety. The data arelisted in the table below. The parent educator is interested in a more stringent test and thusdoes not posit a particular direction for the results. The alpha level is set at .05 for thehypothesis test.Infant careclassesNoinfantcareclassesSubjectID#AnxietyscoreSubjectID#Anxietyscore1211624123311354514
