As an Argosy student, you are designing a training program to help develop team cohesiveness in a healthcare facility. You have a before and after test which measures behaviors indicating team cohesiveness. For this scenario, which of the following represents the Null hypothesis?;A) H1: There is a significant difference in the teaming behavior before and after the training.;B) H0: There is no significant difference in the teaming behavior before and after the;training.;C) H1: There is no significant difference in the teaming behavior before and after the;training.;D) H0: There is a significant difference in the teaming behavior before and after the training;(Points: 3);H1: There is a significant difference in the teaming behavior before and after the training.;H0: There is no significant difference in the teaming behavior before and after the training.;H1: There is no significant difference in the teaming behavior before and after the training.;H0: There is a significant difference in the teaming behavior before and after the training;19. The null hypothesis states that a difference, effect or relationship exists in a research situation? (Points: 1);True;False;20. The confidence level expresses the degree of certainty that an interval will include the actual value of the population parameter? (Points: 1);True;False;30. A distribution of 6 scores has a median of 21. If the highest score increases 3 points, the median will become (Points: 3);21;21.5;24;Cannot be determined without additional information;none of these;34. A graphical presentation may accomplish ALL BUT which of the following objectives? (Points: 3);Illustrate the amount of variation in the data.;Illustrate approximately where the mean is;Allow comparison with similar data;Will have the exact same shape regardless of what units are used on the axes.;35. A coach in a large high school thinks that ballet training will improve the batting performance of his baseball team. He decides to have a randomly selected half of the team take six weeks of ballet training before the baseball season begins, while the other half does not take such training. He will then compare the season batting averages of group A (those with ballet training) and group B (those without ballet training) by comparing the mean of group A with the mean of group B.;An independent variable is: (Points: 3);ballet training;batting average;runs batted in;the size of the school;the grades the players make in the ballet school;36.
