I am in 6th grade, trying to do an analysis of data for a science fair project. Sorry, but I am only at Algebra 1, I do not have any background in statistics. I have been reading and trying to understand what test(s) to use, but with no luck.

My experiment is can a blindfolded person sense the distance of an object by electric shock to the tongue? As the object gets closer, the shock gets stronger. It is not a timed race, it is just pass (1) or fail (0). The null hypothesis would be all failures, that is if the device did not work, the person could not see the object because he or she was blindfolded. The only possible results are 1 or 0. I had 17 people each try 4 different times to do 4 different object detection tests.

Here is a sample of my data (I have 17 people, not just two people):

Person A Test One: 1, 1, 1, 1 Test Two: 1, 1, 1, 1 Test Three: 1, 1, 1, 1

Test Four: 1, 1, 1, 1

Person B Test One: 1, 0, 1, 1 Test Two: 1, 1, 1, 1 Test Three: 1, 1, 1, 1

Test Four: 1, 1, 1, 1

The data seems to show that the device works, if it did not, then the data above would be all 0s (all fails).

But, here is my question: How do I statistically test my data to show that my device works, that the null hypothesis is rejected? I have 17 different people, so I cannot use a paired T Test, so I am totally lost. Can someone please help me, what statistics can I use to show that my device is successful, that the results are not random chance? Do I show results statistically by each test, or all tests, by each person, or as what?

Thank you
