7.Could a median be determined for the education data? If so, what would the median be for education for the experimental and the control groups? Provide a rationale for your answer.
No, a median could not be determined due to insufficient data that was provided. To reach a median, there should have been individual data for each of the people.

Compare the mean baseline and posttest depression scores of the experimental group. Was this an expected finding? Provide a rationale for your answer.
This was an expected finding, because after the completion of the empowerment program the experimental group would have an improvement on their depression.
Compare the mean baseline and posttest depression scores of the control group. Do these scores strengthen or weaken the validity of the research results? provide a rationale for your answer.
The mean baseline and the posttest depression scores of the control group did not have a change. They remained at 10.40 and the scores continue to strengthen the validity of the results of the research. The control group’s depression would not improve without the empowerment program.
