Tests of Differences between Means, Dependent Means (3 of 4)
For this example,
There are 10 - 1 = 9 degrees of freedom (Note that the sample size is the number of difference
scores, not the total number of scores.) A t table can be used to find that the p
Tests of Differences between Means, Dependent Means (1 of 4)
When the same subjects are tested in two experimental conditions, scores in the two
conditions are not independent because subjects who score well in one condition tend to
score well in the othe

in a population of adul
Independence of Observations
Two observations are independent if the sampling of one observation does not affect the choice of the
second observation. Consider a case in which the observations are not independent: A researcher wishes
to estimate how much
