    I think we worked that out from this:

    "'The younger age group will show a significantly higher level of conformity than the older age group."

    Yeah, we've been doing this in Psychology too. It's one tailed because it specifies the direction of the difference (increase), two tailed would allow for the results going either way (merely a difference), as mangomaz says

    one tailed.


    the Two tailed would be " the younger age group would show different levels of conformity to the older age group"

    if p>0.001 you should definately retain the hypothesis!! Do you fully understand what you're doing?

    That brings back memories and they're not fond. My teacher was rubbish at teaching us it (in fact she wasn't there i guess that's why) i never seemed to really understand it fully but managed to get by.
