This states the prediction that the experiment is designed to test. 3 Sample data. This gives a table of sample data that can be analysed using the test.

2 Differences between pairs of related scores Participants Condition 1 1 2 3 4 10 5 4 5 6 2 2 2 Total scores Mean scores 24 12 Differences between scores Condition 2 4 3 Ranking differences between conditions As we pointed out in Chapter 5, non-parametric tests are based on ordinal data. 1 were between pairs of scores, measured as ordinal data. This means that the differences themselves are ordinal data and have to be ranked. 3 gives instructions about how to assign tied ranks to identical scores.

Participants in both groups were tested for their memory of the text. 4. 4 1 The overall ranks 1 and 2 are the result of an overall ranking of all scores. 2 The rank totals (T1 and T2) have been added up separately for each condition, 3 Note that there are different numbers of participants in each group, 6 participants in Condition 1 and 8 participants in Condition 2.
