Objective: Apply techniques Conducting a Single Sample Z-test

1. A researcher predicts that positive emotions will increase the likelihood of forming false memories. A metanalysis of many studies has revealed that the norm for false memory creation is 0.72 on the DRM paradigm recognition test, with a standard deviation of 0.29. The scores for the research sample who experienced the induction of positive emotions before completing the DRM recognition test are presented in the table below (N=34). Conduct a hypothesis test of the researcher’s prediction with significance level .05. The populations should be defined as ______________.

Objective: Apply techniques Conducting a Single Sample t-test

1. A researcher predicts that positive emotions will increase the likelihood of forming false memories. A metanalysis of many studies has revealed that the norm for false memory creation is 0.72 on the DRM paradigm recognition test. The population standard deviation is unclear. The scores for the research sample who experienced the induction of positive emotions before completing the DRM recognition test are presented in the table below (N=34). Conduct a hypothesis test of the researcher’s prediction with significance level .05. For this research scenario, the characteristics of the comparison distribution should be defined as ______________.
 0.93 0.96 0.63 0.92 0.77 0.75 0.72 0.98 0.84 0.52 0.92 0.89 0.92 0.82 0.76 0.87 0.89 0.93 0.54 0.52 0.8 0.91 0.94 0.69 0.97 0.88 0.71 0.99 0.93 0.75 0.77 0.97 0.51 0.98
