Real World

Bring to mind a real-world situation or problem that could be addressed using an independent- or related-samples t test. You will not need SPSS to complete this Discussion question.

For this situation or problem:

◦Clearly identify the independent and dependent variables you would study.

◦Determine whether an independent-samples or related-samples t test is most appropriate and why.

◦Generate the statistical null and alternative hypotheses.

◦Describe what information the effect size would tell you that the probability value would not tell you.

◦Using realistic numbers for values of degrees of freedom, sample size, and t statistic, report hypothetical results in a few sentences using correct APA format.
With these thoughts in mind:

the real-world situation or problem you selected to address, the independent and dependent variables you would study, an explanation of whether an independent-samples or related-samples t test is most appropriate, the statistical null and alternative hypotheses, a description of what information the effect size would tell you that the probability value would not tell you, and your hypothetical results using correct APA format.
