Psychology and Education

.    Questions 1 –3 are based on the following: A researcher is interested in the effect of two independent variables—a) participants’ self-esteem and b) three different versions of a story describing someone who was either unsuccessful, moderately successful, or very successful in life—on a single dependent variable: participants’ ratings of other people. Below is a table of sample means in each of the six conditions of this factorial design. The sample means represent average ratings, with higher ratings indicating a more positive impression of the person described in the story. The letter M represents a sample mean, so the participants who had high esteem, who read about an unsuccessful character, on average rated that character with a score of 50.
