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.
