The group of subjects, either 10 experimentáis or 10 controls.

frequency distribution shows the total number of responses made by all experimentáis and controls at the particular scoring level indicated. The scoring scales on the three methods of measurement were correlated for easy comparison (i.e., the"stroncf level for each rating scale was not the same numerical value. This level represented a score of "three" on.the conciten t. -analysis scale, "four" on the post-drug questionnaire scale, and both "four" and "five" on the follow-up questionnaire scale. The "slight" level represented a score of "one" on . content-analysis scale, and both "one" and "two" on the questionnaire scaled.

% = number of matched pairs with a difference in score when the score of the control subject was subtracted from the score of the experimental subject. The prediction had been made that the experimental score would be higher. The maximum value of N = 10. p = the probability that the predicted higher scores of the experimentáis were due to chance.
