If you are comparing two means, you need to have the SEm, which requires knowledge of n. You do not supply that value.

Z = (mean1 - mean2)/standard error (SE) of difference between means

SEdiff = √(SEmean1^2 + SEmean2^2)

SEm = SD/√n

If only one SD is provided, you can use just that to determine SEdiff.

Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion/probability related to the Z score.

(29-25)/4= 4/4= 1

A residential treatment facility tests a new group therapy for patients with self-destructive behaviors. The therapists hope to decrease scores on a measure of self-destructive behaviors that has a mean in the overall residential treatment population of 35 and a standard deviation of 4.7. The mean score for the patients after the new group therapy is 27.

What is the effect size of the new group therapy?
