Does background music significantly impact the productivity of patient registration employees?
A group of patient access registrants works in an open office environment in a hospital. A human resources (HR) manager wants to compare the productivity of this group under three conditions: with a constant background sound of music, with an unpredictable background sound of music, and with no background sound of music.
There are twenty-four registrants, and they are randomly divided into three groups. All registrants study a set of written patient registration material for 30 minutes. During this time, those in Group 1 are subject to background music at a constant volume, those in Group 2 are subject to background music with varying volumes, and those in Group 3 are not subject to any sound at all. After studying, all employees take a 10-point multiple-choice test over the material. Their scores are attached in the document
