Criteria | Experimental group mean, N = 37 | Control group mean, N = 36 | Mann-Whitney U test result |
---|---|---|---|
Describe observations without explanations | M = 1.97, SD = 0.644 | M = 1.77, SD = 0.637 | U = 562.00, p = 0.195 |
Devise an explanation for an observed pattern | M = 1.62, SD = 0.758 | M = 0.83, SD = 0.845 | U = 342.50, p = 0.000 |
Make prediction based on explanation | M = 1.62, SD = 0.794 | M = 1.19, SD = 0.524 | U = 437.00, p = 0.003 |
Decide whether the prediction and the experimental outcome agree | M = 2.27, SD = 1.017 | M = 1.83, SD = 0.810 | U = 455.00, p = 0.014 |
