b. It uses the same group of participants in all the treatment conditions being compared.

c. It uses one group of participants to evaluate a hypothesis about one population mean.

d. none of the other alternatives is correct

2 . The results of an independent-measures study produce a t statistic with df = 36. How many individuals participate in the study?
a. 37
b. 38
c. 73
d. 74

a. 100/12
b. 100/10
c. 36/5 + 64/7
d. 36/4 + 64/6

4. An independent-measures research study uses two samples, each with n = 12, to compare two treatments. If the results are evaluated with a t statistic using a two-tailed test with ? = .05, then what are the boundaries for the critical region?

a. t = ±2.228
b. t = ±2.201
c. t = ±2.074
d. t =±2.069

b. t = ±2.131
c. t = ±2.048
d. t =±2.045
