I am proposing a research study that looks at the effects of mindfulness on stress
There are 64 participants. 32 control group and 32 experimental group. The 32 experimental will receive the treatment: 8 week Mindfulness based stress reduction course (MBSR)
All participants will fill out a Perceived stress scale survey before and after data collection .
The results will show a significant decrease in perceived stress among the experimental group.
So, my question is: What sort of statistical procedure and analysis will I use to explain the results? Is it a t-test? I am confused, help!
