I have 20 questions I’m working on. Some questions are specific to an article. I’m including the 3 articles. I have been working on these questions, and have answered 18, when I copied the questions it did not copy the answers I chose. Not sure if what I have is right. Question 6 and 12 I have not been able to figure out how to get the answer.

Following is the link to the articles on google drive if articles can’t be

1. 
Refer to
Dale article. What was the rate of committing a type I error for the After
School time period?

1.2%

12.0%

5%

0%

2. 
Refer to
Montgomery article. Is how heavy a child is (as measured by BMI SD score) significantly
related to his or her level of physical activity (PAL) in this study?

Yes

No

3. 
Researchers risk making a type II
error when:

They conclude that means are different

They conclude that means are the same

They have too many subjects in their study

They measure too many variables in their study

4. 
Refer to Montgomery article. From
the correlation analyses in Figure 1, how much variability does time spent
sedentary account for in PAL?

33%

11%

57%

22%

5. 
Refer to Montgomery article. In the
multiple regression analyses, is sex significantly related to PAL?

Yes

No

6. 
Refer to Montgomery article. If
percent MVPA accounts for 4.8% of the variability in PAL, how much variation
does age, sex, and BMI SD score (together) account for in PAL?

11.4%

12.0%

14.8%

6.6%

7. 
Consider two separate groups of
people who had their body fatness measured. The mean and standard deviation for
groups 1 and 2 were 37.4% ± 4 % and 38.2% ± 7%, respectively. The spread of
scores is:

Greater in group 1

Greater in group 2

The same in both groups

Too low

8. 
Refer to Montgomery article. Which
variable is inversely related to PAL?

Time spent sedentary

Time spent in moderate activity

Age

None are inversely related

9. 
If you wanted to determine whether
the number of hours spent in class online was related to exam grades for stats
students, which statistical test would you use?

Correlation

Dependent t-test

Independent t-test

ANOVA

10. 
Because
of its dependence on two extreme scores, the ______ is not typically a useful
measure of variability.

Variance

Standard deviation

Confidence interval

Range

11. 
Measures
of central tendency include all of the following EXCEPT:

Mean deviation

Median

Mean

Mode

12. 
Refer to
Faigenbaum article. For the chest press results, which statement is correct?

Chest press was significantly related to the number of days
of training per week.

The change in strength in the control group was not
different from the 1 day group.

The change in strength in the control group was not
different from the 2 day group.

The change in strength in the 1 day group was greater than
in the control group.

13. 
Consider
two separate groups of people who had their body fatness measured. The mean
and standard deviation for groups 1 and 2 were 37.4% ± 4 % and 38.2% ± 7%,
respectively. For group 1, the 4% means:

The body fat measurement is 4% accurate.

68.26% of the % fat values fall between 35.4% and 39.4%.

The group’s % fat did not fall below 4%.

68.26% of the % fat values fall between 33.4% and 41.4%.

14.  If you wanted to determine whether
male or female stats students scored better on exams, which statistical test
would you use?

Correlation

Dependent t-test

Independent t-test

ANOVA

15. 
Refer to
Dale article. The children on the active day had a higher activity level
after school than on the restricted day. Was this difference statistically
significant?

Yes

No

16. 
From the choices below, identify the
strongest correlation coefficient.

-0.93

0.90

0.87

-0.05

17. 
Refer to the Dale article. What type
of statistical test was used in Table 2 to determine whether children on
restricted days versus non-restricted days had a different activity level after
school?

Correlation

Dependent t-test

Independent t-test

ANOVA

18. 
If you wanted to determine whether
the class’s test grades improved from the midterm to the final exam for stats
students, which statistical test would you use?

Correlation

Dependent t-test

Independent t-test

ANOVA

19. 
Consider two separate groups of
people who had their body fatness measured. The mean and standard deviation for
groups 1 and 2 were 37.4% ± 4% and 38.2% ± 7%, respectively. If you wanted to
determine whether the two groups differed significantly in their % fat, the
appropriate statistical test is:

ANOVA

Independent t-test

Dependent t-test

Correlation

20. 
Type I errors are made when, based
on the results of a study, the researcher:

Correctly concludes that the intervention was effective

Incorrectly concludes that the intervention was effective

Correctly concludes that the intervention was not effective

Incorrectly concludes that the intervention was not effective
