A researcher is attempting to determine the effects of a practice and gender on a timed task. Participants in an experiment are given an computerized search task. They search a computer screen of various characters and attempt to find a particular character, they press a button to stop a timer. Their reaction time in seconds on each trial is recorded. Subjects practice for 2, 4, or 6 hours and are either female or male. The reaction time data for the 30 subjects appear here.

d. What is the effect size and what does this mean


(just the even ones)


(Note that I typed it out but I also print screened just in case I missed something)

2.     Explain the difference between multiple independent variables and multiple levels of independent variables. Which is better?

3.     What is blocking and how does it reduce “noise”? What is a disadvantage of blocking?

4.     What is a factor? How can the use of factors benefit a design?

5.     Explain main effects and interaction effects.

6.     How does a covariate reduce noise?

7.     Describe and explain three trade-offs present in experiments.
