I am designing a study for my project. I wanted to test if music affects reading comprehension. This study will be a between group design. The independent variable is type of music and the dependent variable is the score on a reading comprehension task.
Half of participants will be randomly assigned to a room with classical (soft) music, and the remaining half of participants will be assigned to the room with rock (hard) music.
Would this be a t-test? Then what kind of t-test should I need to use?
Or is this a one way ANOVA?
