F = 78.072, p <.01; Adjusted R

2

= .432.

Table 3 presents findings from the multiple regression analysis of the post internal

efficacy scores. The adjusted R

2

of .432 indicates that this model explains about 43% of the

variance in the post internal political efficacy. Furthermore, the probability of the F value of

78.072 for this model is less than the alpha level of .01. Therefore, the null hypothesis that the

combined effects of prior internal political efficacy, cognitive pre score, time, space, and location

is equal to zero must be rejected. A significant amount of variation in the post political

knowledge percentage is explained by this model.

Table 3 illustrates that post internal political efficacy will increase 1.299 for each unit

change in prior internal political efficacy, holding constant all other variables in this model.

Upon examining the significance associated with obtaining the t value (19.513) for this

coefficient, the null hypothesis that the effect of prior internal political efficacy on post internal

political efficacy is equal to zero must be rejected. However none of the other variables in this

model are statistically significant, so we must fail to reject the null hypotheses for each of them.
