She designed a study with 15 participants, 5 in each group, and asked participants to track how many cigarettes they smoked in a 2-week period. In the results of her study, she reported as follows: “The means of the groups (Method A: M = 156, SD = 33.6; Method B: M = 163, SD = 34.4; Method C: M = 145, SD = 48.4) did not differ significantly, F(2, 12) = .27; ns.”
