In a cognitive psychology experiment, the researcher is interested in whether encoding condition has a
significant effect on memory for a list of words. She recruits subjects to participate in the experiment.
Each recruited subject is randomly assigned to either encoding condition A or encoding condition B. The
researcher would like to leave the hypothesis non-directional without predicting which encoding
condition would lead to better memory, and she sets the significance level at α = .05 for a two-tailed
Hint: You may remember a similar scenario in the previous assignment, but with a crucial difference. In
the previous assignment, each subject attends BOTH condition A and condition B, while each subject here
attends only ONE condition (either A or B).
a. What is the dependent (outcome) variable? What is the independent (grouping) variable?
total: 1 for each variable)
b. Create the null and alternative hypotheses (non-directional) for this study, using both words and
