•Read the three study descriptions below: ◦Study 1 demonstrates that women perform more poorly, on average, than men perform on the mathematics section of the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT).
◦Study 2 demonstrates that lower-socioeconomic-status students benefit more over time from an academic tutoring program than do higher socioeconomic-status students.

The mean IQ for the three groups is 103, 100, and 90, respectively. Results showed a highly statistically significant difference.
