Textbook Problem

Ackerman and Goldsmith (2011) found that students who studied text from printed hardcopy had better test scores than students who studied from text presented on a screen. In a related study, a professor noticed that several students in u large class had purchased the e-book version of the course textbook. Few the final exam, the overall average for the entire class was μ = 81.7 but the *n =* 9 students who used e-books had a mean of *M* – 77.2 with a standard division of s – 5.7.

**a.** Is the sample sufficient to conclude that scores for students using e-books were significantly different from scores for the regular class? Use a two-tailed lest with α = 0.5.

**b.** Construct the 90% confidence interval to estimate the mean exam score if the entire population used e-books.

**c.** Write a sentence demonstrating how the results from the hypothesis test and the confidence interval would appear in a research report.

**a.**

To determine

**To Find:** If the scores for students using e-book is significantly different from the scores of regular class using two-tailed test with

Explanation

**Given info:**

A sample of 9 students using e-books are selected from a population with mean 81.7. The sample mean, and standard deviation (s) is found to be 77.2 and 5.7 respectively. Two-tailed hypothesis test using

**Calculations:**

Step 1: Null Hypothesis is

Step 2: For a sample of

Step 3: t-statistics can be calculated using formula:

Calculate

**b.**

To determine

**To Find:** Make a 90% confidence interval estimate for the given question

**c.**

To determine

**To State:** How would the outcome of hypothesis test and confidence interval will appear in the research report.
