Im doing exam practice for A-level psychology AQA paper 2, and have finished the whole paper but i couldn’t get my hear around question 27.

It reads “ a psychology teacher read the researcher’s study on sport and happiness. She considered whether setting group tasks could improve her student’s level of happiness. She decided to conduct an independent groups experiment with 30 students taking A-level psychology using the same happiness questionnaire.
Suggest an appropriate statical test the psychology teacher could use to analyse the data. Justify your choice of test. (4marks)”

I was thinking it would be a sign-test as the teacher is using a matched pairs design. But I’m quite unsure :/

If anyone has done it before or could help me ok this question, that would be great help

The teacher is using an independent group design here; not matched pairs as it states in the question. She is also using a questionnaire, which would produce ordinal data. Therefore, the statistical test the teacher would use is Man-Whitney U test. Hope this helps

Hi what topic is this? I do a level psychology but I’m super behind on content. I don’t suppose you’ve done psychopathology yet I’m stuck on a 6 marker?
