Problem 8E

Accounting and Machiavellianism. A study of Machiavellian traits in accountants was published in Behavioral Research in Accounting (January 2008). Recall (from Exercise 1.31, p. 27) that Machiavellian describes negative character traits such as manipulation, cunning, duplicity, deception, and bad faith. A Mach rating score was determined for each in a sample of accounting alumni of a large southwestern university. The accountants were then classified as having high, moderate, or low Mach rating scores. For one portion of the study, the researcher investigated the impact of both Mach score classification and gender on the average income of an accountant. For this experiment, identify each of the following:

a. Experimental unit

b. Response variable

c. Factors

d. Levels of each factor

e. Treatments

(a)

Experimental unit:

An experiment is a planned activity designed to compare treatments. In an experiment, the experimenter creates differences in the experimental units involved by subjecting them to different treatments and then observing the effects of such treatments on the measure of outcomes. Here, the accounting alumni of a large southwestern university are considered as the experimental units.
