The dependent variable is the parent involvement in the leaf painting activity. The independent variable was the average hours worked during the week by the parent. The mean for 0-30 hours worked was 10.000, and the mean for 31-51+ hours was 7.857. This means, that parents who, on average, work fewer hours had more involvement in the painted leaf activity. The t-statistic is 11.582. This means, if the data is generalized to the population level, is statistically significant to the .001 level giving it a three-star significance.
