1) An educational psychologist is interested in determining whether attitudes toward school change with age. She selects 30 seventh-graders, 30 ninth-graders, and 30 eleventh-graders and administers a “Do you like school?” test.

a. How many factors does this experiment have? (Type answer here) ___________

b. How many levels are there in the experiment? (Type answer here) ___________

c. What is the N in this experiment? (Type answer here) _____________

2) For Joan’s doctoral dissertation experiment, 15 wheelchair users were assigned to three groups with 5 in each group. These participants navigated in virtual-reality settings. Group 1 participants were in the virtual-reality setting (a building) as wheelchair users. Group 2 participants were in the virtual-reality setting in a wheelchair pushed by a walking person. Group 3 participants walked without aid in the virtual-reality setting. Joan measured the number the time needed to complete the navigation of the virtual-reality setting.

a. What is the dependent variable? (Type answer here) __________

b. What is the independent variables? (Type answer here) _________

c. How many levels are there? (Type answer here) _____________

d. What is the N? (Type answer here) _________________

5) Analysis of variance is designed to compare ___________ simultaneously.
