ANSWER 31 We have distinguished two types of studies observational and experimental Brie y explain the essential differences between these two types of study ANS In an experiment researchers observe how a response variable behaves when they manipulate one or more factors However in an observational study the researchers do not manipulate any factors Instead they observe characteristics of a subset of the members of one or more existing populations REF Section 11 AP 32 The following paragraph describes an actual study After reading the description determine whether the study is an observational study or an experiment Justify your answer with specific references to the information in the study HWe compared paired daytime and night counts of wild brook trout brown trout and rainbow trout made by the same snorkelers in five streams during August 1994 Overall we counted 109 trout in the daytime and 333 trout at night We speculate that trout counted at night were present during the daytime but were hidden from view Biologists should consider that trout behavior and susceptibility to being seen might vary a great deal between daytime and night even during summer In some streams the majority of trout may not be seen during the daytime ANS This study is an observational study since the explanatory variable was not manipulated by the researchers and the subjects were not randomly assigned to different treatments Instead the researchers simply observed the number of trout visible during the day and during the evening REF Section 11 AP 33 The following paragraph describes an actual study After reading the description determine whether the study is an observational or experimental study Justify your answer with speci c references to the information in the study HBefore the opening of the new International Airport and the termination of the old airport children near both sites were recruited into aircraft noise groups aircraft noise at present or pending and control groups with no aircraft noise and closely matched for socio economic status A total of 326 children mean age 104 years took part in three data collection waves one before and two after the switch over of the airports After the switch to the new airport long term memory and reading were found to be impaired in the noise group at the new airport an improved in the formerly noise exposed group at the old airport ANS This is an observational study The children were identified in place and the manipulation of sound level was not randomly assigned REF Section 1 AP 45 1 2014 Cengage Learning All Rights Reserved May not be scanned copied or duplicated or postedto a publicly accessible website in whole or in part 34 Brie y describe how populations and samples differ ANS A population consists of an entire group about which some information is desired A sample consists of only some part of this group that has been selected for study REF Section 11 AP 35 A friend of yours who is not taking statistics wonders why it is that anyone would choose to take a sample quotObviouslyquot she says Hyou would get better information from a census In a short paragraph explain why it is that statisticians take samples rather than taking a census ANS Although we may get better information from a census it is usually far too costly and time consuming to contact every member of the population A large random sample will be nearly as good for far less cost REF Section 12 AP 36 The most basic sampling method studied in statistics is the simple random sample SRS In your own words what is the correct de nition of a simple random sample of size n ANS A simple random sample of size n is a sample that is selected from a population in a way that ensures that every different possible sample of the desired size has the same chance of being selected Note It is important that students not only state that each person has the same chance of being chosen but also each possible sample ofsize n has the same chance of being chosen REF Section 12 AP 452 2014 Cengage Learning All Rights Reserved May not be scanned copied or duplicated or postedto a publicly accessible website in

b What is the distinction between response bias and non response bias a Bias is the tendency for a sample to differ from the corresponding population in some systematic way b Non response bias occurs when responses are not actually obtained from all individuals selected for the sample With response bias however responses are obtained from the subjects but the method of observation tends to produce values that systematically differ from the true population value in some way REF Section 12 AP 39 Bias the tendency for samples to differ from the corresponding population in some systematic way might be due to a selection bias b response bias andor c nonresponse bias In a few sentences discuss the differences among these different biases ANS Selection bias occurs when some part of the population is systematically excluded from the sample Non response bias occurs when responses are not actually obtained from all individuals who were selected for the sample With response bias however responses are obtained from the subjects but the method of observation tends to produce values that systematically differ from the true population value in some way REF Section 12 AP 40 The two paragraphs below discuss aspects oftwo studies each of which exhibit a bias For each study decide whether the problem is selection bias response bias or nonresponse bias and in a few sentences explain why you chose your answer One part of the Nurses39 Health Study is concerned with possible causes of skin cancer Nurses were asked about different behaviors and aspects of their health when they entered the study Then the nurses were given the questionnaire again if they were diagnosed with cancer When the questionnaires were analyzed the investigators discovered that after the nurses were diagnosed with cancer they tended to report a reduced ability to tan It is thought that the shift in reporting might be caused by an awareness of their diagnosis a V b V One part of the Demographic and Health Surveys Program is concerned with measures of malnutrition Investigators measure physical aspects of growing children and attempt to document the physical characteristics of a population at different ages Sadly in some countries many children die early and thus a bias is introduced in the study when the investigators cannot collect the data from the deceased children 454 2014 Cengage Learning All Rights Reserved May not be scanned copied or duplicated or postedto a publicly accessible website in whole or in part ANS a This is an example of response bias since the awareness of their diagnosis may have caused them to change their response It isn39t non response bias since they were able to obtain responses from the nurses and it isn39t selection bias since they did not attempt to generalize to a larger population b This is an example of non response bias since some of the children selected for the study were not able to participate after they died It is not selection bias since the children were not left out on purpose and it isn39t response bias since the researchers were unable to obtain responses in the rst place REF Section 12 AP 41 Three methods for random sampling are a simple random sampling b strati ed random sampling and c cluster sampling In a few sentences discuss the similarities and differences among these sampling methods Speci cally what sampling circumstances would lead you to choose each of these methods ANS In simple random sampling every individual and every possible sample of size n has an equal chance of being selected for the study In strati ed random sampling the population is divided into non overlapping homogeneous groups called strata and a simple random sample is selected from each strata ln cluster sampling the population is divided into non overlapping preferably heterogeneous groups called clusters and then a random sample of clusters is selected and every member of the selected clusters is studied Cluster sampling works best when the population is already divided into easily identifiable groups that are heterogeneous ie each cluster can reasonably be assumed to be representative of the entire population Strati ed random sampling works best when there are easily identi ed groups in the population that are anticipated to have very different responses to the question of interest Simple random sampling is best when neither of the circumstances listed above are present REF Section 12 AP 42 A pharmaceutical company wants to test its new drug that is designed to help balding men grow more hair From their records of past customers the company has data on about 5000 men The data contains information about the men39s hair color age and percent of baldness A partial list is given below For their anticipated experiment they want to take a sample that is representative of their customers Hair color Age yrs Baldness Light 67 Dark 62 73 Light 41 25 Dark 52 50 Dark 43 14 Light 69 96 Dark 56 57 Light 32 40 455 2014 Cengage Learning All Rights Reserved May not be scanned copied or duplicated or postedto a publicly accessible website in whole or in part a Brie y describe how you would select a simple random sample of size n 20 from this list of customers b Describe in a short paragraph why you might wish to use a strati ed random sample ANS a To select a simple random sample of size 20 we could number the subjects from 0001 5000 and use a random digit table On the table we would look at sets of4 digits until 20 numbers from 0001 5000 were selected ignoring any repeats and these would be the men selected b If the researchers anticipate an association between any of the variables listed hair color age or baldness and the response variable they should stratify by that variable so that the sample they get will not over or under represent a subgroup which may respond differently than the population in general REF Section 12 AP 43 In evaluating an experiment how would you determine if avariable is an explanatory variable or an extraneous variable ANS In an experiment the explanatory variable is the one that researchers manipulate in order to observe changes in the response variable An extraneous variable is any other variable which is thought to affect the response variable but is not of interest in the study REF Section 13 AP 44 In evaluating an experiment how would you determine if a variable is an explanatory variable or a response variable ANS In an experiment an explanatory variable is one whose value is manipulated or determined by the experimenter while a response variable is one whose value is measured at the end of the experiment REF Section 13 AP 456 2014 Cengage Learning All Rights Reserved May not be scanned copied or duplicated or postedto a publicly accessible website in whole or in part 45 One of the tasks of wildlife biologists is to estimate bird populations One method for doing this is to walk a quottransectquot typically a long randomly selected rectangle and count the number of particular species that are seen During hunting season the biologists wear brightly colored clothes as a protective measure A theory known as the quotspecies confidence hypothesisquot predicts that birds may react to these brightly colored clothes A robin for example when confronted with a biologist wearing an orange color may be less afraid than if the biologist were wearing a brown color The idea is that the orange color gives the robin some quotconfidencequot that the biologist is another really big bird This is a dif culty because a robin that is less afraid of the biologist may be easier to see and therefore quotcountquot because the robin lets the biologist get closer This would result in too high an estimate of the robin population To test this theory a biologist performed a study in her area wearing a bright orange vest or a brown vest while working After training herself to accurately estimate distances she indicated on her notes how close the robins would let her get before they ew away the quotapproach distancequot using this as a measure oftheir quotconfldencequot She randomly selected her starting points in each trip through the transects and also carefully noted the weather conditions speci cally the wind speed a What is the explanatory variable factor for this experiment b What is the response variable for this experiment c After completing the study the biologist was examining her results and noticed that on those days she wore the brightly colored vest the wind tended to be of greater velocity How does this information affect the interpretation of the results of the experiment ANS a The explanatory variable is the coloration of the vest bright vs drab b The response variable is the quotapproach distancequot c The wind velocity is a potential confounding variable On a windy day the birds may not detect the researcher as easily or they may be more hesitant to y Thus it might be that the results are at least partly the result of wind velocity not the choice of garment color REF Section 13 AP 46 The likelihood that an animal will successfully avoid a predator39s attack should increase if the presence of the predator is detected Animals are of course known to warn others of a predator39s presence the well known prairie dog warning call is an example Some aquatic animals are known to send chemical signals For example the crayfish and Iowa darter may excrete ammonium from their gills or possibly in their urine during periods of heightened metabolic activity In an experiment to see if red legged frogs Rana aurora may send or respond to chemical signals specimens in Oregon were collected as embryos and raised in an aquarium As tadpoles they were separated into two pairs of aquaria The quotupper tankquot in each pair was connected to the quotlower tankquot to create a very small river A wooden heron model was placed in one of the upper tanks and moved around for 30 seconds to simulate apredator attack Both the sender upper tank and receiver lower tank animals were monitored for added activity increased movement indicating antipredator behavior a What is the explanatory variable factor for this experiment b What is the response variable for this experiment 457 2014 Cengage Learning All Rights Reserved May not be scanned copied or duplicated or postedto a publicly accessible website in whole or in part A O V During the course of the experiment the investigators were very careful with the wooden heron model not to come in contact with the glass of the aquaria or make noise in any other way If they had been unsuccessful and their wooden heron made significant amounts of noise how would that affect the interpretation of the results ANS a The explanatory variable is the presenceabsence of the wooden heron model b The response variable is the antipredator behavior c The added noise would be a potential confounding variable The tadpoles39 response may be a startle response to a sudden change in their environment and not specific to the detection of a predator PTS 1 REF Section 13 AP MSC Section 13 47 A common practice of teachers is to have students exchange their quizzes and grade each others In addition to decreasing the teacher39s work load the reduced time between quiz and feedback is thought to be a plus for learning Your US History teacher aware of your statistical prowess has asked you to design an experiment to test this theory You have decided to use the mid term exam not graded by students as your response measure Your history teacher has three classes one early in the morning one at noon and one late in the afternoon Each class contains 30 students a Describe the treatments you will use in your experiment b One possible confounding variable is the time of day since students may be more alert at certain times of the day than at other times Describe a method would you use to control this variable Unfortunately you cannot change the student schedules c Do you feel the results of your experiment could be generalized to your statistics class Why or why not ANS a Individual pairs of students would be randomly assigned to Htrade papers or Hrlot trade papers treatment groups The non trading students39 work would be graded by the teacher each day and given back the next day b Each class would be considered a block Within each block both treatments would be randomly assigned as indicated in part a c The results might be generalizable to other classes but wo doing the experiment in those classes there is no evidence suggest one could generalize Statistics and history seem like they might be different enough that although they are both classes with homework the subject matter might be learned differently and the instant checking of the quizzes might be less or more ofa help in one class or the other REF Section 13 AP 458 2014 Cengage Learning All Rights

The idea behind the recorder is that coaches can replay training sessions for more effective feedback to the athlete Some people believe video recording may make the athletes more nervous and actually decrease their performance You have been asked to design an experiment to address this issue for competitive high school tennis players You have decided to use the accuracy of tennis serves as your response variable and the number of successful serves out of 100 as your performance measure The subjects for your experiment are 60 high school male competitive tennis players of varying ability who have volunteered for the experiment a Describe the treatments in your experiment b One possible confounding variable is the experience levels of the players Explain how you would control this variable c Can the results of this experiment be generalized to all male tennis players Why or why not ANS a The two treatments will be 1 The subject is recorded and 2 The subject is not recorded b lwould use blocking pairing to control the experience level of players I would pair the two most experienced together as one block the next two most experienced as the next block and so on Then the two members of each block would be randomly split into the two treatment groups This way each treatment group should be roughly the equivalent with regard to experience level c No the results of this study should not be generalized to all male tennis players for at least two reasons One competitive tennis players are presumably more used to playing in front of crowds and would be less bothered by video recording than the typical player Two volunteers are not generally representative of any larger population Note either reason should be suf cient to receive credit REF Section 13 AP 49 Suppose that two experiments were conducted to assess the effect of a new insect repellant In Experiment A a simple random sample was taken from the population of River City In Experiment B a simple random sample

volunteers were randomly assigned to the two treatments in both experiments a For each experiment A and B discuss whether one can legitimately infer a cause and effect relation between the use of the repellant and fewer insects landing from each of these experiments Why or why not b V For each experiment A and B discuss whether one can legitimately generalize to the population of River City from

each of these experiments we can infer a cause and effect relationship because the volunteers were randomly assigned to the two treatments b In experiment A we can generalize the results of the experiment to the population of River City since the subjects were randomly selected from the population of River City Thus the subjects should be representative of the population in general However in experiment B the random sample came from a group of volunteers from River City who may not be representative of the general population of River City REF Section 14 AP 50 Suppose that two experiments were conducted to compare the effects of two new insect repellants In Experiment X a simple random sample was taken from the population of River City and the citizens were randomly

distributions browsers and grazers noting any unusual features of the data b The theory of some biologists is that browsers have thinner mouths because the browse plants frequently have thorns and spines browsers have evolved to have thinner mouths to get beyond the thorns and spines to the food part of the plant Is the data in the back to back stem plot consistent with this theory What aspect of the data would you consider when answering this question ANS a The distribution of browsers is centered in the low 40 range Other than one prominent outlier at 70 the distribution is approximately symmetrical The distribution of browsers is likewise centered in the low 40 range and is quite symmetrical but more spread out than the browsers if the outlier is excluded b The evidence to support this theory is not very strong The browsers may have a slightly higher average curvature but the two distributions overlap quite a lot indicating that the differences are modest at best REF Section 23

modern biology The study of prehistoric birds depends on fossil information which typically consists of imprints in stone of aprehistoric creature39s remains To study the productivity of an ancient ecosystem it would be useful know the actual mass of the individual birds but this information is not preserved in the fossil record It seems reasonable that the biomechanics of birds operates much the same today as in the past For example relationship between the wing length and total weight ofa bird should be very similar today to the relationship in the distant past The wing lengths of ancient birds are readily obtainable from the fossil record but the weight is not Assuming similar biomechanical development for ancient birds and modern birds a regression model expressing the relationship between wing length and total weight of a modern bird could be used to estimate the mass of similar prehistoric birds and thus gauge some aspects of the ancient ecosystem Data is
