65. Cindy Ho, VP of Finance at Discrete Components, Inc. (DCI), theorizes that the discount level offered to credit customers affects the average collection period on credit sales. Accordingly, she has designed an experiment to test her theory using four sales discount rates (0%, 2%, 4%, and 6%). Cindy wants to control for the size of the customer but not to test for it as the main variable of interest so she classified DCI's credit customers into three categories by total assets (small, medium, and large). Then, she randomly assigned four customers from each category to a sales discount rate. Cindy's experimental design is a ________.

88. While reviewing staffing plans for a new pilot plant, Colin Chenaux, VP of Operations at Clovis Chemicals, Inc., designed an experiment to test the effects of "supervisor's style" and "training method" on the productivity of operators. The treatment levels were: (1) authoritarian, and participatory for supervisor's style, and (2) technical manuals, training films, and multimedia for training method. Three qualified applicants were randomly selected and assigned to each of the six cells. Analysis of Colin's data produced the following ANOVA table.

89. BigShots, Inc. is a specialty e-tailer that operates 87 catalog Web sites on the Internet. Kevin Conn, Sales Director, feels that the style (color scheme, graphics, fonts, etc.) of a Web site may affect its sales. He chooses three levels of design style (neon, old world and sophisticated) and randomly assigns six catalog Web sites to each design style. In Kevin’s experiment "style" is _______.

a) the dependent variable

b) a treatment variable

c) a concomitant variable

d) a blocking variable

e) a response variable

Ans:

Response: See section 11.5 A Factorial Design (Two-Way ANOVA)

Difficulty: Easy

Learning Objective: 11.5: Test a factorial design using a two-way analysis of variance, noting the advantages and applications of such a design and accounting for possible interaction between two treatment variables. 58. The following graph indicates a _______________.

a) 2 4 factorial design with interaction

b) 4 2 factorial design with no interaction

c) 4 2 factorial design with interaction

d) 2 4 factorial design with no interaction

e) randomized block design

Ans:

Response: See section 11.5 Factorial Design (Two-Way ANOVA)

Difficulty: Easy
