Although the graph and the tabe show some clear differences in the means, we still want to find out the probability that this kind of finding occurs by chance alone.
Incorrect spelling of "table".

Two common kinds of multilevel designs involve either quantitative or qualititative manipulations of the independent variable.
Incorrect spelling of qualitative.

If this was real data, then we wouldn’t know if the two sample means came from the the same distribution or different distributions.
Repeated the word "the".

The ttest is a statitiscal method for analyzing the data in two conditions to determine the likelihood that any observed difference could have been produced by chance.
Incorrect spelling of statistical.

Well, we can say that chance has an infintesimally small probability of producing this sample mean.
Incorrect spelling of infinitesimally.

What happens we we do this?
Repeated word "we". First "we" should be changed to "when".

If you can guarantee that the the only change was switch 1 going up and down, then you can be confident of the inference that switch 1 caused light 1 to turn on and off.
Repeated "the" should be deleted.

But, how confident our we that our manipulation of the light switch was the only variable changing in our experiment?
Correction first "our" should be changed to "are".
