Compute a two-sample independent means t-test

The Dean of the school psychology wants to know which professors’ students are scoring higher on statistics final exams. It is believed that Professor A’s students are scoring higher on the final exam than Professor B’s. To test that hypothesis, the scores for each student are recorded. The results are shown ibelow.

Professor A Student Scores:

42.1, 41.3, 42.4, 43.2, 41.8, 41.0, 41.8, 42.8, 42.3, 42.7

Professor B Student Scores:

42.7, 43.8, 42.5, 43.1, 44.0, 43.6, 43.3, 43.5, 41.7, 44.1

Professor A: Professor B:

Mean: 42.14 Mean: 43.23

Std Dev: 0.683 Std Dev: 0.750

Do the data provide sufficient evidence to conclude that, on the average, Professor A’s students perform higher on the final exam? Perform the required hypothesis test at the 5% level of significance.

T Tests Discuss the following with the class: Identify the assumptions for a two-independent sample t test. What information can you use to find the critical values in the t table in the back of the course text?
