The Computer Anxiety Rating Scale (CARS) measures an individual's level of computer anxiety, on a scale from 20 ( no anxiety) to 100 (highest level of anxiety). Researchers at Miami University administered CARS to 172 business students. One of the objectives of the study was to determine whether there is a difference between the level of computer anxiety experienced by female students and male students. They found the following:


Males Females (sample mean)X: 40.26 36.85
S 13.35 9.42
N 100 72

a) at the 0.05 level of significance, is there evidence of a difference in the variability of the computer anxiety experienced by males and females?
b) Interpret the P-Value
c) What assumption do you need to make about the two populations in order to justify the use of the F test?
d) Based on (a) and (b) which t test defined in section 10.1 should you use to test whether there is a significant difference in mean computer anxiety for female and male students?
