You have just analyzed the results from your experiment, and you calculated p = .13. What conclusions can you make? Select all that apply.

false
You reject the null hypothesis.
false
You accept the null hypothesis.
true
You fail to reject the null hypothesis.
false
You accept the alternative hypothesis.
You are unable to reject the null hypothesis or accept the alternative hypothesis if your p value is .13. However, you cannot conclude that the null hypothesis is true either. Thus, you only fail to reject the null hypothesis.
You have just given a group of 2nd graders and 1st graders a reading test. You found that the 2nd graders performed better than the 1st graders, but you calculated a p value of .08, which was not significant at the .05 level. After getting these results, what should your thoughts be about the difference between 1st and 2nd graders on this reading test?

true
You are more confident that there is a difference.
false
You are less confident that there is a difference.
false
You now know that the difference is actually zero.
Although you were unable to reject the null hypothesis here, you did find a difference in your sample. Because of this sample difference, you can now be more confident that the population difference does really exist, and doing further research is the best way to find out. You definitely do not accept the null hypothesis.
