A psychologist believes that students' test scores will be affected if they have too much caffeine before taking an exam. To examine this, she has a sample of n= 15 students drink five cups of coffee before taking an exam. She uses an exam that has a population mean of μ=72 and a population standard deviation of σ = 3. The mean test score for the sample of 15 students who drank five cups of coffee before taking the exam was M = 69. Do a t-test using α = .01.
a. is this a one-tailed test or a two-tailed test?
b. What is the research hypothesis?
c. What is the null hypothesis?
d. Calculate the degrees of freedom for this problem
e. What is the critical value of α=.01
f. Calculate the mean of the distribution of sample means
g. Calculate the standard error of mean
h. Calculate the t-score of the sample mean
i. Sketch the distribution of sample means and indicate where the sample means is, where the critical value of t is located
j. Can you reject the null hypothesis?
k. Can you accept the research hypothesis?
