A smaller standard deviation will displaysteady data. Here, the students accustomed to being controlled recognized words pertaining to autonomy such as freedomas real words at an average of about 10% quickerthan the students who were not accustomed, 782 to 857. Also, the data spread is dependable because the standard deviation is closer at 211 to 243, leaving a difference of 32. These statistics show the students who were conditioned to being controlled more
