Assignment

Several studies (Keinan, 2002, for example) have found evidence that belief in magic and luck increased as stress levels increased. The more stressed people were, the more likely they were to engage in magical thinking. Suppose you did your own study examining the relationship between test anxiety and belief in the power of a lucky charm. You ask one group of students to bring their own personal lucky charm to their statistics final exam. Another group is the control group and has to take their statistics exam without any lucky objects present during the test.

70           100

79           97

76           95

Use the data to answer the following questions:

Calculate the mean for each group.

Calculate the standard deviation for each group.

In your opinion, does having a lucky charm result in better performance on the exam? How do the two groups differ? How are they similar?
