Customer Question

1. A formal statement that there is an absence of relationship between variables when tested by a researcher is called:
Null hypothesis
Type I error
Type II error
Negative interval
2. Bivariate statistics refers to the statistical analysis of the relationship between two variables.
True
False
3. Positive relationships between two variables indicate that, as the score of one increases, the score of the other increases.
True
False
4. A result that is probably not attributable to chance is:
Type I error
Type II error
Statistical significance
In the semi-quartile range
5. A score that is likely to fall into the middle 68% of scores of a normal distribution will fall inside these values:
. +/- 3 standard deviations
+/- 2 standard deviations
+/- 1 standard deviation
semi-quartile range
29. Regression uses the least squares method to fit a model.
True
False
30. The difference between the highest and lowest score in a distribution is called:
Semi-quartile range
Range
Mean
Median
31. This is the measurement of dispersion equal to the square root of the mathematical variance.
Mean
Median
Standard deviation
Range
32. This is used to compare means while controlling for the effect of a covariate.
ANOVA
RANOVA
ANCOVA
Dependent t-test
33. The assumptions for ANCOVA differ substantially from those for ANOVA.
True
False
34. When the researcher incorrectly rejects the null hypothesis, it is known as:
Hypothesis error
Statistical significance
Type I error
Type II error
35. You are studying the effect of hypnosis on weight loss. You will measure each patient's weight pre- and post-intervention. The most appropriate test is:
One sample t-test
MANOVA
ANCOVA
Dependent groups t-test
36. What is the minimum level of measurement appropriate for the independent variable in a t-test?
Nominal

One-sample t-test
ANOVA
ANCOVA
Independent t-test
39. A group of neonatal nurses wanted to know if there was a difference in mean heart rate between premature babies who were swaddled and babies who were not swaddled. Babies were randomly assigned to swaddling or no swaddling. Which test is most appropriate?
One sample t-test
ANCOVA
Independent t-test
Logistic regression

ANOVA
42. A nurse researcher wanted to evaluate blood pressure in a set of patients/research subjects at 1, 3, and 6 months. What test would be most appropriate?
Independent t-test
ANVOVA
RM-ANOVA
ANCOVA
43. In a study that examines the effect of a peer mentor on the heart rate of patients, what is the dependent variable?
Peer mentoring
Emotional status
Heart rate
Patients
44. A variable with equal distances between score units which also has a true meaningful zero is:
Ordinal
Cardinal
Ratio
Nominal
45. The standard deviation is:
The difference between the 3rd and 1st quartile.
The squared deviations from the mean.
The difference between the highest and lowest scores.
The square root of the variance.
46. If a researcher accepts a null hypothesis when that hypothesis is actually true, she has committed:
