## Question:

In order to discern whether Zwerg is doing better than just guessing (50% correct), we will employ the 3S strategy:

a. Statistic: How many times did Zwerg pick the correct object? Out of how many attempts?

b. Simulate: Using an applet, simulate 1,000 repetitions of having Zwerg choose between the two objects if she is doing so randomly.

c. Based on the value of the statistic from part (a), do you think the chance model is wrong? Why or why not?

d. Strength of evidence: Based on your answers for (a)–(c), state your conclusions about the research question of whether the data provide convincing evidence that Zwerg can correctly follow this type of direction by an experimenter more than 50% of the time?

e. Are the results of this study statistically significant or is the chance model plausible? How are you deciding?
