Welcome to Psychology Questions, where you can ask questions and receive answers from other members of the community.



A researcher interested in whether people are able to identify emotions correctly in other people when they are extremely tired. It is known that, using a particular method of measurement, the accuracy rating of people in the general population (who are not extremely tired) are normally distributed with a mean of 82 and a variance of 20. In the present study, however, the researcher arranges to test 50 people who had no sleep the previous night. The mean accuracy for these 50 individuals was 78. Using a two-tailed test and the .05 significance level, what should the researcher conclude?

(c) Explain your answer to someone who knows about hypothesis testing with a sample of a single individual but who knows nothing about hypothesis testing with a sample of more than one individual.
