Scenario 2. A researcher is interested in examining how a new exercise program aimed at body positivity can influence teenagers’ self-esteem. She randomly assigns teenagers to either engage in the new exercise program for 8 weeks (the experimental group) or to a control group that does not do the program and then compares their self-esteem.

Question 22

Now, pretend you actually ran the study you came up with. Make up the results (the test statistic values, means and SDs), and write up the results as you would see them in an APA style research paper. Note, you do not actually have to do any calculations here! You just need to make up the means and sds for each group, the test statistic value, and the p value and write out the results. You can use the answers to the write up questions on the previous 4 assignments as a template for this!
