Question description

Steven collected data from 20 college students on their emotional responses to classical music.  Students listened to two 30-second segments from “The Collection from the Best of Classical Music.”  After listening to a segment, the students rated it on a scale from 1 to 10, with 1 indicating that it “made them very sad” to 10 indicating that it “made them very happy.” Steve computes the total scores from each student and created a variable called “hapsad.”  Steve then conducts a one-sample t-test on the data, knowing that there is an established mean for the publication of others that have taken this test of 6.  The following are the scores:

5.0  5.0

10.0  3.0

13.0  13.0

7.0  5.0

5.0  15.0

14.0  18.0

8.0  12.0

10.0  7.0

3.0  15.0

4.0  3.0

a)  Conduct a one-sample t-test.  What is the t-test score?  What is the mean?  Was the test significant?  If it was significant at what P-value level was it significant?
