By selecting "Yes" below I, the student, acknowledge that it is my responsibility to enter the answers as it is specified in the "Answer formatting" file on the HomePage and I take full responsibility for loss of points on this assessment for entering correct but wrongly formatted answers. I understand that only correctly formatted answers will be given credit.

Selecting "Yes" below will add 0.1 extra point to the assessment (and your final grade). Failure to select "Yes" does not relieve any student from correctly formatting the answers.

If n = 15 for each sample, which of the following sets of data provides the clearest difference between the two samples?

1. a sample mean difference of 5 points with s2 = 5 for both samples
2. a sample mean difference of 5 points with s2 = 10 for both samples
3. a sample mean difference of 10 points with s2 = 5 for both samples
4. a sample mean difference of 10 points with s2 = 10 for both samples

One sample of n = 5 scores has a variance of s2 = 10 and a second sample of n = 10 scores has s2 = 20. What can you conclude about the pooled variance for these two samples?

1. It will be closer to 10 than to 20.
2. It will be closer to 20 than to 10.
3. It will be exactly half way between 10 and 20.

An educational psychologist studies the effect of frequent testing on retention of class material. In one section of an introductory course, students are given quizzes each week. A second section of the same course receives only two tests during the semester. At the end of the semester, both sections receive the same final exam, and the scores are summarized below:

Quizzes: n = 20, M = 73, s2= 38
Exams: n = 20, M = 68, s2 = 42

Do the data indicate that testing frequency has a significant effect on performance? Use a two-tailed test at the .05 level of significance.
