Exercise 1
1. The criminal record mean was 8.0 (SD 2.12). The clean record group mean was
4.0 (SD 2.24). The no information group mean was 5.0 (SD 2.55). The overall test
was statistically significant, F(2, 12) = 4.06, p =.045. The Tukey post hoc t

Week 3
Exercise 1
There was a significant length effect on the number recalled. F(1,12) = 32.00, p
= .000, partial n2 = .727. The short condition had a higher number recall (M=6.00) than
the long condition (2.00). Vividness was not significant, F(1,12)=.0
