Universal Bank is a relatively young bank growing rapidly in terms of overall customer acquisition. Universal bank wants to convert its liability customers (depositors) into personal loan customers (while retaining them as depositors). A campaign that the bank ran last year for liability customers showed a healthy conversion rate of over 9% success. This has encouraged the retail marketing department to devise smarter campaigns with better target marketing. The goal of our analysis is to model the previous campaign’s customer behavior to analyze what combination of factors make a customer more likely to take out a personal loan.

Transtutors Week two. Use the APA format to support all the answers, with a minimum of 5 scholarly resources. Answer the first 8 questions On Key Concepts, from Jackson and Trochim, Donnelly, and Arora.The Title of the book is: Research Methods and Statistics: A Critical Thinking Approach 4th edition. Jackson even-numbered Chapter exercises (Chapter 8 pp. 220-221; Chapter 10 pp 273-275). 1. The producers of a new toothpaste claim that it prevents more cavities than other brads of toothpaste. A random Sample of 60 people used the new toothpaste for 6 months. The mean number of cavities at their next checkup is 1.5. In the general population, the mean number of cavities at a 6 month check up is 1.73 (& = 1.2). a) Is this a one-or two tailed tests? b) What are Ho and Ha for this study? c) Compute Z obt d) What is Z ev? 2. Henry performed a two – tailed test for an experiment in which N=24. He could not fine his table of t critical values, but remembered what the t cv at df = 13. He decided to compare his t obt with this t cv. Is he more likely to make a type I or type II error in this situation? 3. A researcher hypothesizes that individuals who listen to classical music will score differently from the general population on a test of special ability. On a standardized test of spatial ability U= 58. A random sample of 14 individuals who listen to classical music is given the same test. Their scores on the test are 52, 59, 63, 65, 58, 55, 62, 63, 53, 59, 57, 61, 60, 59. a) Is this a one-or two tailed test? b) What are Ho and Ha for this study? c) Compute t obt d) What is t ev? e) Should Ho be rejected? What should the researcher conclude? f) Determine the 98% confidence interval for the population mean, based on the sample mean. 4. A researcher believes that the percentage of people who exercise in California is greater than the national exercise rate. The national rate is 20%. The researcher gathers a random sample of 120 individuals who live in California and finds that the number who exercise regularly is 31 out of 120. a) What is X squared obt? b) What is df for this test? c) What is X squared cv? d) What conclusion should be drawn from these results? 5. A student is interested in whether students who study with music playing devote as much attention to their studies as do students who study under quiet conditions ( he believes that studying under quiet conditions leads to better attention). He randomly assigns participants to either the music or no-music condition and has them ready and study the same passage of information for the same amount of time. Subjects are given the same 10 -item test on the material. Their scores appear next. Scores on the test represent interval -ration data and are normally distributed. Music: 6, 5, 6, 5, 6, 6, 7, 8, 5. No Music: 10, 9, 7, 7, 6, 6, 8, 6, 9, a) What statistical test should be used to analyze these data? b) Identify Ho and Ha for this study. c) Conduct the appropriate analysis. d) Should Ho be rejected? What should the researcher conclude? e) If significant, compute and interpret the effect size. f) If significant, draw a graph representing the data. g) Determine the 95% confidence interval. 6. The researcher in the above exercise decides to conduct the same study using a within-participants design to control for differences in cognitive ability. He selects a random sample of subjects and has them study different material of equal difficulty in both the music and no music conditions. The study is completely counterbalanced to control for order effects. The data appear next. As before, they are measured on an interval -ration scale and are normally distributed; he believes that studying under quiet conditions will lead to better performance. Music: 7,6, 5, 6, 8, 8. No Music: 7, 8, 7, 7, 9, 8. a) What statistical test should be used to analyze these data? b) Identify Ho and Ha for this study. c) Conduct the appropriate analysis. d) Should Ho be rejected? What should the researcher conclude? e) If significant, compute and interpret the effect size. 7. Researchers at a food company are interested in how a new spaghetti sauce made from green tomatoes (and green in color) will compare to their traditional red spaghetti sauce. They are worried that the green color will adversely affect the tastiness scores. They randomly assign subjects to either the green or red sauce condition. Participants indicate the tastiness of the sauce on a 10-point scale. Tastiness scores tend to be skewed. The scores follow. Red Sauce: 7, 6, 9, 10, 6, 7, 8. Green Sauce: 4, 5, 6, 8, 7, 6, 9. a) What statistical test should be used to analyze this data? b) Identify Ho and Ha for this study. 8. You notice in your introductory psychology class that more women tend to sit up front, and more men sit in the back. To determine whether this difference is significant, you collect data on the seating preferences for the student in your class. The data follow. Front of the room: Men 15, Women 27. Back of the room: Men 32, Women 19. a) What is X squared obt? b) What is df for this test? c) What is X squared cv? d) What conclusion should be drawn from these studies? 9.

Following is a study description followed by three research questions and an outline of requirements for you to follow in answering them. Each of you will only need to answer each research question for 2 of the health measures variables, which will be assigned individually. Nutrition education programs, which teach clients how to lose weight, reduce cholesterol intake, or reduce fat intake through better eating patterns, have been growing in popularity. The nurse in charge of one such program at a local hospital wanted to know whether the programs actually work to improve health measures. A random sample was drawn of 33 clients who attended a nutrition education program. The study recorded the following health measures: weight, cholesterol levels, total dietary fat intake per average day, total dietary cholesterol intake per average day, and percent of daily calories from fat. These data were gathered both before and 3 months after the program. The researcher also determined the clients’ genders, ages, and heights. The data are stored in the following way:Column A: Gender (1 = female; 2 = male)Column B: AgeColumn C: Height (in feet)Columns D and E: Weight, before and after (in pounds)Columns F and G: Cholesterol Level, before and afterColumns H and I: Total Dietary Fat Intake per average day, before and after (in grams)Columns J and K: Dietary Cholesterol Intake per average day, before and after (in milligrams)Columns L and M: Percent Daily Calories from fat, before and afterEach of you should have already received 2 assigned variables. For each of the variables you are assigned, answer the following research questions. Consider each variable individually. Don’t try to incorporate both of your variables into one test for any of the research questions. Also, be aware that you may need to reorganize the data to run the tests and/or create new variables. Remember that required conditions are dependent on the test chosen, so you MUST decide the test for each question BEFORE you check required conditions. You WILL have separate required conditions for each research question!a) In terms of each of the health measures (fat intake and cholesterol intake), is the program a success?b) Does age impact the amount of reduction in each measure (fat intake, and cholesterol intake)?c) Do males differ from females in the amount of reduction for each measure (fat intake, and cholesterol intake)?You should use Excel for all your analysis and the p-value criteria to make your decisions. I do not need to see the seven-step hypothesis testing process, but be sure you include everything I specify below:Your write up must include:• A brief overall introduction describing the case including your chosen alpha. I do not need a detailed justification for your alpha.• For each research question, for each of your variables, you must include:1. A statement of the test chosen and a clear and complete explanation for why you chose that specific test. This needs to be more than simply running through the flowchart steps and must show that you clearly understand why that is the correct choice.2. Any analysis required to check the required conditions for your chosen test. Include any histograms or hypothesis tests and your decision based on these tests. (NOTE that if you find that you cannot meet the required conditions for the test you expected to do, you must use the appropriate non-parametric test.3. A clear statement of your hypotheses, using proper symbols and notation.4. Your Excel output for the test for each variable pasted into the document with the p-values you used clearly identified5. A clear statement of your conclusion for each hypothesis test and research question• An overall conclusion pulling everything together.
