Question: your view on whether you view a chocolate bar as...

Question details

Your view on whether you view a chocolate bar as delicious or fattening may depend on your gender. In a study of American college students, Rozin, Bauer, & Catanese (2003) examined the importance of food as a source of pleasure versus concerns about food associated with weight gain and health. The following results are similar to those obtained in the study. The dependent variable is a measure of concern about the negative aspects of eating.

Male Participants

Female Participants

n=9

n=15

Xbar (mean)=33

Xbar (mean)=42

S2=92.5

s2=88.6

Based on these results, is there a significant difference between attitudes for men and women? Use a two-tailed test with an alpha of 0.01.

Compute Cohen’s d to measure effect size. What does it tell us about the relationship?

Write a sentence demonstrating how the result of this hypothesis test and measure of effect size would appear in a research report.
