Comparison of Two Means exampleAn experiment is conducted to determine whether intensive tutoring (covering a great deal of material in a fixed amount of time) is more effective than paced tutoring (covering less material in a longer amount of time). Two randomly chosen groups are tutored separately and then administered proficiency tests. Use a significance level of α < 0.05.Let group 1 be the population of the intensive tutoring group and group 2 be the population for the paced tutoring group. The summary statistics:The Hypotheses --H0: μ 1= μ 2H0: μ 1– μ 2= 0 H0: μ Int= μ Pacedor orH a: μ 1> μ 2 H a: μ 1– μ 2> 0 H a: μ Int> μ Paced The test statistic: Draw picture01.166So, find P(t > 1.166) with 9 df

Two randomly chosen groups are tutored separately and then administered proficiency tests.

The summary statistics:null hypothesis: H0: μ 1= μ 2H0: μ 1– μ 2= 0 oralternative hypothesis: H a: μ 1> μ 2 H a: μ 1– μ 2> 0 The test statistic: With df = 9, .1 < P(t>1.166) < .15 Fail to reject Ho.There is no strong evidence to suggest that the population of students using intense tutoring learn more than the population of students using paced tutoring.Draw picture0
