Analysis Of Variance

Improved Essays
Repeated Measures Analysis of Variance (RM-ANOVA) was conducted to compare the reaction time of visual and acoustic conditions (previously shown in study phase) with new brands (not presented before)(Graph 1). Mauchly’s test showed that the assumption of sphericity had not been violated, χ2 (2) = 0.68, p = .711. Degrees of freedom were corrected using Greenhouse-Geisser estimates of sphericity ( = .98). There was a significant effect of modality type, F (2, 60) = 20.09, p < .001. Bonferroni Post-hoc tests displayed significant effect for visual versus acoustic; the visual brands were faster than acoustic (p < .001). On the other hand, Mixed ANOVA used to compare the performance of gender and it showed that there was not a significant effect …show more content…
The old/new with modality effect had maximal positivity during the 300-500ms time range and FN400 was negative-going waveform (Figure 2-3). Paired samples t-tests were conducted to see if modality has an effect on the retrieval at Fz, FCz, F1 and FC2 (300-500ms). After analysis of the data found that there visual and acoustic brands did not differ according to voltage at Fz amplitude t(30) = 1.29, p = .206 and at FCz t(30) = 1.26, p = 216 (Figure 2, Graph 2). Additionally, the left and right lateralization was examined with F1 and FC2 between 300-500ms. Interestingly, the mean amplitude of Graph 2 shows slightly a significant change between modality, the paired samples t-test provided no significant effect except FC2. The source memory over FC2 was the most positive waveform of FN400 than others (Graph 2). Thus, it has been found that acoustic brands had a larger negative amplitude than visual brands at FC2, even though the amplitudes not seen in this Graph 2 due to more positivity, paired samples t-test found a significant difference t(30) = 2.31, p = .028, but not at F1 t(30) =1.48, p = .153 (Figure 2, Graph 2). As a conclusion, the modality effect could not determine according to peak amplitude except FC2 which visual brands had larger positive peak than …show more content…
Therefore, all the chosen electrodes reported significant latency difference based on old/new brands. The result suggested that old brands elicited significantly shorter latency than new brands at F1 t(200) = 73.39, p < .001, FCz t(200) = 69.92 p < .001, FC2 t(200) = 58.40, p < .001 and at Fz t(200) = 66.84, p < .001. Another paired samples t-tests provided significant effect of modality type, but the latency changes were small magnitude over the Graph 3. In the FN400 component, acoustic brands had slower latency than visual at F1 t(200) = -7.25, p < .001 and at FC2 t(200) = -6.24, p < .001 but at FCz acoustic brands were slightly faster than visual t(200) = 3.26, p = .001 and there was no modality difference in latency at Fz t(200) = -.81, p =.418 (Graph 3). In general, new brands were slower than old brands, also in two electrodes (FC2 & F1) had faster latency for visual than acoustic

    In case of NIIT it was 1.47 in 2010 and it went 1.42 in 2011 and 1.16 in 2012 and came to 1.22 in 2013. On the other hand in 3i Infotech the ratio was greater than NIIT throughout. From this we conclude 3i Infotech is more risky than NIIT because they have more liabilities and less equity. • In table 8 total debt/equity ratio has been calculated. In case of NIIT this ratio was 0.64 in 2010 whereas in 3i Infotech it was 0.87.…

    Here, the possibility that the difference is due to mere random chance is less than 1% therefore the difference in sales performance between males (mean=4175.92) and females (mean=5675.97) in week 2 is strongly significant. A conclusive argument can be drawn that in week 2, females have a better sales performance than male…

    The 0.05 critical value p-value corresponding to the 10131 degrees of freedom in this research study was 1.962. The corresponding two-tailed p-value for this test’s t-score is less than 0.0001. By conventional criteria, this difference is considered extremely statistically significant. Because the p-value is less than the significance level of 0.05, researchers may conclude that the difference between the mean correct responses in the picture test and facial test reflect a greater difference than sampling error alone and may therefore reject the null hypothesis that these tests have the same mean of correct responses. The T-test score that compared the average reaction time for the picture memory test and the facial memory test subjects was 26.682.…

    The aim of this research study is to test the Stroop effect. The Stroop effect was first stablished by J. Ridley Stroop when he discovered a phenomenon in which people had a little difficulty when naming the color of the word. The “Speed of Processing” model states that the reading response occurs faster than the color-naming response, arguing that at the moment of receiving a task involving color-naming, the word stimuli receives the response before the word stimuli, leading to disorientation. Moreover, when the task involves reading the word, no struggle is produced due the word response arrives before the color response produces disorientation. Researchers suggest that the reading response comes with no effort, (Cherry, n.d) as the brain…

    The coefficient of determination moves from 0.01 to 0 (with rounding) for equations 2 and 3 and the Adjusted R2 is still negative at -0.02. This means that in these equations the linear relationship between my X and Y variables is even worse than the linear relationship for equation 1. In addition, there are no significant changes in the slope coefficients (β_1and γ_2) for X_1 and X_2. This indicates a consistency among my regressions that provides further evidence to accept my null hypothesis that the more contacts improve sale premia. At all levels of alpha and with all equations, the F-test requires that I accept the null hypotheses that H_0: α_1=0 and H_0: α_2=0.…

    The error bar represents standard error. Note that the c was significantly greater than zero. 4.4 Discussion In this study the nonlinearity in BOLD response to EtCO2 change was investigated for moderate hypercapnia. Contrary to sigmoidal response hypothesized previously for ramped stimulus, we observed opposite pattern i.e. inverse sigmoid pattern in BOLD response.…

    However, Group x Session interaction was not significant, F (8, 48) = 1.99, p < 0.067. Overall, during the pre-shift phase the main effect of 16% group responded more than the 4% group. For the post-shift, the independent samples t-test was significant at session ten, t(6) = 2.553, p < 0.04. The group differed in terms of response rate. 16% group (M= 0.21; SEM=0.02) responded at a significantly lower rate than the 4% group (M= 0.28;…

    Looking at figure 1.a we see that after the Q4 2008 shock, the GDP level takes several quarters to recover the trend it previously had. The MA (1) coefficient is not significant at 10% as well as the MA (2) coefficient. As a result of this insignificance of estimates, we can infer that for this particular model, the random shocks at each point can be interpreted as mutually independent and come from the same distribution. The main difference between MA and AR models is that in MA models a shock affects the values of X only for the current period and q periods in the future; while in the AR models a shock affects infinitely the values of X since affects Xt , which affects Xt+1, which affects Xt+2 ,…

    Table 5. t-test of Exam Results with High and Low Lecture Attendance At 5% significance, the highlighted one-tail p-value of 0.002 is smaller than 0.05. Hence, the null hypothesis that those who have high lecture attendance achieve the same exam results as those who do not is rejected for the alternative hypothesis that high lecture attendance increases exam results. Hence, using this t-test, there is sufficient evidence that higher lecture attendance increases exam score. Model 4.1 Interpretation The regression output in table 3 can be expressed as an equation to model exam results. y_(exam result)=2.39267+1.48505〖 x〗_1+0.98494 x_2+2.81056 x_3+0.54784〖 x〗_4 where: x_1= quiz…

    The probability of getting a critical ratio as large as 2.961 in absolute value is less than 0.003. In other words, the regression weight for Perceived Quality towards Purchasing Decision is significantly different from zero at the 0.01 level (two-tailed). Thus the hypothesis of Perceived Quality towards Purchase Decision is significant and supported by the data. The next data as can be seen from the table 4.7 above is the P value of Brand Awareness is 0.926. This means the probability of getting a critical ratio as large as 0.093 in absolute value is 0.926.…
