Question

**Retaking the SAT:** Many high school students
take the SAT's twice; once in their Junior year and once in their
Senior year. In a sample of 55 such students, the score on the
second try was, on average, 34 points above the first try with a
standard deviation of 15 points. Test the claim that retaking the
SAT increases the score on average by more than 30 points. Test
this claim at the 0.10 significance level.

(a) The claim is that the mean difference is greater than 30
(*μ*_{d} > 30), what type of test is
this?

This is a right-tailed test.

This is a two-tailed test.

This is a left-tailed test.

(b) What is the test statistic? **Round your answer to 2
decimal places.**

*t*_{d} =

(c) Use software to get the P-value of the test statistic.
**Round to 4 decimal places.**

P-value =

**(d) What is the conclusion regarding the null
hypothesis?**

reject *H*_{0}

fail to reject
*H*_{0}

**(e) Choose the appropriate concluding
statement.**

The data supports the claim that retaking the SAT increases the score on average by more than 30 points.

There is not enough data to support the claim that retaking the SAT increases the score on average by more than 30 points.

We reject the claim that retaking the SAT increases the score on average by more than 30 points.

We have proven that retaking the SAT increases the score on average by more than 30 points.

Answer #1

a)

This is a right-tailed test

b)

test statistic td =1.98

c) P-value = 0.0264 (try 0.0265 if this comes wrong)

d )reject *H*_{0}

e) The data supports the claim that retaking the SAT increases the score on average by more than 30 points.
