# What unit of measurement does Cohens d use to express the difference between a control group mean and an experimental mean? | Homework Help

1) You want to compare improvement in depression scores on the PHQ-9 Quick Depression Assessment (on a scale of 0-27 where 0 represents no depression and 27 represents severe depression) between one group of 35 teenagers who participate in a singing class and a second group of 38 teenagers who participate in a boxing class. Mean improvement in depression scores over a 2-month period are:

   Change in depression score Standard deviation Singing Class    -5.72   1.43 Boxing Class    -8.46   2.19

2) Individuals experiencing depression were divided into three groups. Each group was counseled for different amounts of time (1 month, 6 months, or 12 months) to see how they scored on measures of psychological wellbeing.

What is the best test to find differences among the groups?

   t-test of independent means   t-test of dependent means   ANOVA   Chi-square   Pearson r

&nbsp;

10) To determine whether AIDerall enhances studying, you give the drug to a group of 14 students and engage another 14 students as a control group. Both groups then solve 40 mathematical problems. The lowest score students can receive is zero; the highest is 40. Students who took AIDerall received these scores: 32, 25, 17, 12, 17, 22, 27, 30, 27, 21, 19, 25, 23, 28. Students in the control group received these scores: 33, 21, 14, 20, 36, 11, 32, 12, 15, 18, 19, 22, 14, 13

&nbsp;

For the AIDerall group and rounding every answer to the nearest integer, what are the:

&nbsp;

Mean: [5, 8, 14, 19, 20, 23, 24, 25]

Median: [5, 8, 14, 19, 20, 23, 24, 25, 17]

Standard Deviation: [5, 8, 14, 19, 20, 23, 24, 25]

&nbsp;

For the control group and rounding every answer to the nearest integer, what are the:

Mean: [5, 8, 14, 19, 20, 23, 24, 25]

Median: [5, 8, 14, 19, 20, 23, 24, 25]

Standard Deviation: [5, 8, 14, 19, 20, 23, 24, 25]

&nbsp;
