Screencast Tutorial for a t-test for Dependent Means (Matthew's Study)

This tutorial models how to conduct and interpret t-tests for dependent means and communicate the findings in an APA-style Results section. The tutorial files can be downloaded to personal computers or placed on a course management system.

This resource was created using Adobe Captivate Software. The research scenario and the data are completely original. The definitions provided are consistent with most major Research Methods and Statistics texts but were not quoted directly from any existing source (to our knowledge).
