A professor claims that his students' average score on the first exam of the semester is different than the average score ornthe second exam. The professor has several large classes, so he selects a random sample of students and compares theirscores on the two exams. Find the test statistic and degrees of freedom for an appropriate hypothesis test using the dataset below. Let the difference for each student be computed as đ second exam-first exam. Assume that the scoresare normally distributed.

Step 1

Paired t-test statistic:

In order to test a hypothesis regarding whether the difference between a paired set of n observations (xi, yi) is significant or not, the paired t-test is used. The test statistic for the paired t-test is given as follows:
