Method & Results for One-Way Experiment Lab

Write a method and results section for the lab activity. Follow the APA style and content guidelines we have been learning this semester and use the same instructions you are using for your group project paper: posted here. In the method section, the surveys and the manipulation of the information written on the surveys goes in the "materials" section. Also, be sure (since this was an experiment) to use the vocabulary: independent and dependent variable. See below for hints/tips on reporting ANOVA data.

** Tips on Reporting
ANOVA DATA**

In a result section for ANOVA data, you first want to
report the descriptive statistics (mean and standard deviation) for overall
responses, regardless of condition.

E.g. "Across all conditions the average
amount participant's believed should be spent on textbooks was close to the
anticipated control value (*M* = $180.45, *SD* = .68)."

Then report that you ran an analysis of variance to test your hypothesis (write
"analysis of variance" out first, and put
"ANOVA" in parentheses; from that point forward you can just use "ANOVA") . In this case you ran, more specifically, a one-way
analysis of variance.

Then report the results of the test.

__ Reporting the results of an ANOVA__You need to report the F, the degrees of freedom associated with the
test, and the significance level. Put the degrees of freedom in parentheses
after the F.

So, to report the statistic you would report* F*(dfbetween, dfwithin) =
x.xx, then put the appropriate indication of significance level (*p* = .xx
or n.s....). Note that p and F are italicized.

You also need to explain the results in words (that is, you need to say what
direction the finding took – i.e., you need to refer to the means). For this
exercise, type words into your paragraph and refer to a Table for the actual
means. Download this page for an example of a table for means (PDF; see tables 2 and 3 - you will be doing a simpiler version of those examples). Use MS Word to create your
table: "Table"/"Insert"... Then you can use "Format"/"Borders
& Shading" to get the gridlines right.
