Actually, unless you cover all the variables, it will most likely prove your 
first #2.  Not all browsers support longdesc and maybe even not all 
assistive technologies recognize it as such?

Well, it's just a hypothesis, and it needs to be stated in a way that
can be shown to be either true or false.  It could just as well be
stated in the opposite way:

"Group 1 will access the long descriptions more than those in group 2
  and thus answer the questions more successfully"

Either way, the result of the proposed study will either confirm or deny
the hypothesis.
