Textbook Problem

Montarello and Martens (2005) found that fifth-grade students completed more mathematics problems correctly when simple problems were mixed in with their regular math assignments. To further explore this phenomenon, suppose that a researcher selects a standardized mathematics achievement test that produces a normal distribution of scores with a mean of
*n* = 36 students. If the average test score for the sample is *M* = 104, is this result sufficient to conclude that inserting the easy questions improves student performance? Use a one-tailed test with

To determine

If the average test score for the sample improves by inserting easy questions to the assignments. Use one tailed test with
α = 0.01.

Explanation

**Given info:**

The value of

**Calculation:**

The null hypothesis

Null hypothesis:

Alternative hypothesis:

The alternative hypothesis states that there is improvement in the score of the test.

With

The distribution of sample follows normal distribution
