1.      An LU professor is interested in whether there is a difference between undergraduate students and graduate students in the amount of time spent praying each day. The professor gathers information from random samples of undergraduate and graduate students on the LU campus.  The amount of time praying is normally distributed and is measured on an interval/ratio scale.

3.      A researcher is interested in whether listening to music helps or hinders test-performance. To control for differences in cognitive level, this researcher decides to use a within-participants design. He selects a random sample of participants and has them study different material of equal difficulty in both the music and no music conditions. Participants take  a 20-item quiz on the material. The table below shows the scores on the quiz. The study is completely counterbalanced to control for order effects.  The scores obtained  are measured on an interval-ratio scale and are  normally distributed.
