H01: There is no significant difference in the amount of time it takes to eat a Big Mac meal between overweigh and normal weight individuals.

Assumptions

Outliers: Create a Box and Whisker plot for each group. Hint: Graph > Legacy > Boxplot > Simple. Insert the Box and Whisker plot below: Note: Look for extreme outliers.

Fill in the blanks:

 Groups Outliers (Item #) Are there any outliers? Overweight Normal

<Note: Remove any outliers from the dataset before continuing.>

Assumption of Normality: Run a normality test for each group. Hint: Begin by going to Analyze > Descriptive > Explore. See SPSS lesson 40, p. 327. Insert the Tests of Normality table below:

Fill in the blanks:

Should you use a Shapiro-Wilks or Kolmogorov-Smirnov test? Why?

 Groups Significance Is the assumption of normality met? Overweight Normal

Assumption of Equal Variance: Insert Levene’s Test of Equality of Error Variancesa table(s) below:

Fill in the blanks:

 Significance Is the assumption of equal variance met?

Results

Insert t-test for equality of Means table(s) below:

Fill in the blanks:

 Equal variances assumed Value d.f. t– statistic t- critical (Hint: See Appendix B in Warner) p– value Eta Squared (Hint: See formula)

Is the t-statistic greater than t-critical?

Hint: Use the absolute value.

Is the p-value less than .05?

Should you reject or fail to reject the null?

Is the effect size small, medium, or large? Hint: See Table 5.2 in Warner, p. 208.
