The assumption of normality of the data on test performance is met. This is seen from the non-statistical significance (p > 0.05) of both Kolmogorov-Smirnova’s Test and Shapiro-Wilk’s Test of Equality of normality. Tests of Normality Kolmogorov-Smirnov a Shapiro-Wilk Statistic df Sig. Statistic df Sig. Test Performance .064 120 .200 * .986 120 .279 *. This is a lower bound of the true significance. a.

The error term is Mean Square(Error) = 32.005. *. The mean difference is significant at the .05 level. 5. Interpret the analysis results in the context of the research question. Include important statistics from your analysis results to support your conclusion and generalize your results, if appropriate, to the relevant population(s). (5 points) The research question is: Does Drug A or Drug B impair test performance in either fresh or tired test takers? Overall, the drugs have statistically significant effect of the test performance (p < 0.05 in the Tests of Between-Subjects Effects table above). From the multiple comparison table using Tukey HSD, one sees that compared to the placebo group, Drug B has statistically significant (P < 0.05) positive effect in increasing test performances while Drug A is not different from the placebo group to statistically significant level (p = 0.734) in its effect on the test performances. It is also observed that Drug B has statistically significant (p < 0.05) higher effect in increasing the test performances than Drug A.

II. Multiple Linear Regression (25 points) A health department randomly selected 400 subjects from a local community and monitored their cardiovascular condition. Data from this study are provided in the Final Exam – Linear and Logistic (SPSS document) dataset. The following variables are included in the database: sex, age, BMI, SBP, DBP, serum cholesterol, coronary heart disease, and follow-up.

    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.
