Question

A school system has assigned several hundred “chronic and severe” underachievers to an alternative educational experience. To assess the program, a random sample of 35 students has been selected for comparison with all students in the system.
c. Look at image

(Hint: Note the wording of the research questions. Is a one-tailed test justified? Is the program a success if the students in the program are no different from students systemwide? What if the program students were performing at lower levels? If a one-tailed test is used, what form should the research hypothesis take? Where will the critical region begin?

c. In terms of standardized test scores in math and
reading, was the program a success?
