“The thesis is fine, you might want to indicate how memories are being tested and how odors are presented.
I need a results section since my last results sections didn’t go well with my professor. I also need 3 bar graphs each with the DVs of smell, retrograde amnesia and memories.
I will leave my professor is comments along with my paper and the worksheet, so you know what to follow.

“The thesis is fine, you might want to indicate how memories are being tested and how odors are presented. This comes from the Methods.
Ideally, the data should have been collected using continuous variables (e.g., weight, which goes from 0 to infinity, and can be described in decimals). If you did that, it would be easier to just compute Means, SD, and then conduct inferential stats (e.g., t-test, ANOVA).
Cohen’s d is usually employed to compute effect size from the difference in means so, it’s application in comparing groups is a little confusing here. Z-scores are traditially used to presented data on a normalized scale (e.g., SAT scores), so I’m not sure how they relate to d. You also mention Cohen’s kappa when conducting a correlation, but all of this is unnecessarily complicated, and a bit inaccurate. All that is asked, is that you compare two groups using a t-test.
I’m unclear about the difference between the two graphs. Please present one bar graph for each DV.”
