This discussion assignment is related to your Chapter 9 (Salkind) material.
In this discussion you’re going to come up with your own research scenario (like the ones from the individual assignment # 9). This must be your own original study idea. You may not copy and past or get your answers from other internet sources.
I. Post the following:
a. create your own “Experiment stem question” similar to the questions in the Individual Assignment. This can be about any topic you want. Take a look back at the individual assignment # 9 if you want some examples. Please write your own answers to this question, copying and pasting from the internet to get the answer will not be acceptable.
II. Reply the following:
a. Select a group member’s post and reply by stating the Type I and Type II error for that scenario.
b. State whether their hypothesis is directional or non-directional.
A researcher wants to test out a new drug to see whether it can decrease the symptoms of Alzheimer’s Disease in participants 65 and older. He measures the symptoms of Alzheimer’s before and after the drug has been administered. The expectation is that the symptoms of Alzheimer’s decrease after the drug administration.
Null Hypothesis is: H0 : symptoms of Alzheimer’s after drug intake ≥ symptoms of Alzheimer’s before drug intake ( in other words symptoms remain the same or are greater after drug intake)
Alternative Hypothesis: H1 : symptoms of Alzheimer’s after drug intake < symptoms of Alzheimer’s before drug intake ( in other words, symptoms of Alzheimer’s after drug intake are less than symptoms of Alzheimer’s before drug intake
Type I Error:?
Type II Error:?
Directional or Non-Directional:?
