# Statistical significance of results

Hi, I made an experiment and I want to know if the results are significant or not. But I know nothing about statistics.
In that experiment, I show a serie of 70 videos to 12 participants. Each participant should select from a list of seven choices (the same for all the videos) the emotion expressed in the videos.
The 70 videos contain 10 examples of each emotions (7x10), presented in a random order to the participants.
Then I computed the mean values of the 12 participants and got the confusion matrix of the results (see joined file).
How can I compute the: chance level, p-values, t test and significance for this results ?

Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you !

You calculated the average of what?

The average of the answers of the 12 participants.

Each participant saw the 70 videos, and for each videos they gave one answer (pick one choice over the 7 possible choices).
I filled a confusion matrix (expected answer/ actual answer) with the answers of each participant.
For instance:
- If the participant has a right answer for Joy emotion, in the confusion matrix, the cell that represents the intersection between row joy and column joy takes +1 ,
- If the participant says it sadness but it fear in the confusion matrix, the cell that represents the intersection between row sadness and column fear takes +1 ,

I then transformed the obtained values into percentage (divided each cell by 10 (number of examples) and multiply it by 100 ).
Then I did the sum of all the confusion matrix of the twelve participants, and I divided the sum by 12.
So the values in the final matrix are the average percentage values of the answers of the twelve participants.
