studied before and after 0 EX same people are weighed before and after the holiday season 0 Comparing two samples and every participant is in both samples Major difference with pairedsample t tests is that we have to create difference scores for every participant 0 Now working with a distribution of mean differences In a pairedsample ttest each participant has two scores one in each condition 0 Ideally a positive difference score indicates an increase and a negative difference score indicates a decrease 0 Comparison distribution is based on null hypothesis that posits no mean difference mean differenceO 0 To get difference scores you look at what happens when going from control condition to the experimental condition We can calculate a CI for a pairedsamples ttest lf 0 is NOT in the Cl then it is not plausible that there is no difference bt the sample and population mean difference 0 We reject null when the Cl doesn t include 0 Effect size lets us know if about the size of the observed effect and lets us know if a statistically signi cant nding is likely to be practically important Order effects refers to how a participant s behavior changes when the dependent variable is presented for a second time sometimes called practice effects Counterbalancing minimizes order effects by varying the order of presentation of different levels of the independent variable from one participant to the next
