Description

HLT 362v Week 3

A+ solutions with work shown for the following questions... Use this as a guide to help you do your own work.

EXERCISE 20

1.Which patient scored the highest on the preoperative CVLT Acquisition? What was his or her T score?

2.Which patient scored the lowest on postoperative CVLT Retrieval? What was this patient's T score?

3.Did the patient in Question 2 have more of a memory performance decline than average on the CVLT Retrieval? Provide a rationale for your answer.

4.What is the mean ( ) and standard deviation (SD) for preoperative T score for CVLT Acquisition?

5.Is the preoperative Retrieval T score for Patient 5 above or below the mean for the norm of the group? Provide a rationale for your answer.

6.Assuming that the distribution of the preoperative CVLT Retrieval T scores is normal, the middle 68% of the patients had T scores between what two values?

7.Assuming that the distribution of scores for the postoperative CVLT Retrieval T scores is normal, the middle 68% of the patients had T scores between what two values?

8.The researchers state that it appears that the functional integrity of the left temporal lobe, despite evidence of structural abnormality, plays a considerable role when it comes to memory outcomes following left ATL. Can the findings from this study be generalized to a larger population? Provide a rationale for your answer.

9.If a patient had a raw score = 30, what would his/her postoperative CVLT Retrieval T score be?

10.Did patients demonstrate more postoperative memory declines among CVLT Retrieval T scores than CVLT Acquisition T scores? Provide a rationale for your answer.

Hypothesis Testing

Problem 1

There is a new drug that is used to treat leukemia. The following data represents the remission time in weeks for a random sample of 21 patients using the drug.

107322322616

112019617356

103432251396

Let X be a random variable representing the remission time in weeks for all patients using the new drug. Assume that the distribution of x is normal. A previously used drug treatment has a mean remission time of 12.5 weeks. Does the data indicate that the mean remission time using the new drug is different from 12.5 week at a level of significance of 0.01?

Problem 2

We wish to test the claim that the mean body mass index (BMI) of men is equal to the mean BMI of women. Use the data to the right to test this claim.

Discussion Questions

Explain when a z-test would be appropriate over a t-test.

Researchers routinely choose an alpha level of 0.05 for testing their hypotheses. What are some experiments for which you might want a lower alpha level (e.g., 0.01)? What are some situations in which you might accept a higher level (e.g., 0.1)?
