sample of 171 life science students were exposed to both a traditional method of identifying conifers and Confir ID and then asked which method they preferred. As a result, 138 students indicated their preference for Confir ID. In order to change the life sciences curriculum at SRU to include Confir ID, the biology department requires that more than 70% of the students prefer the new, computer- ized method. Should Confir ID be added to the curriculum at SRU? Explain your reasoning.
