A researcher would like to determine whether an over-the-counter cold medication has an effect on mental alertness. A sample of n = 16 participants is obtained, and each person is given a standard dose of the medication one hour before being tested in a driving simulation task. For the general population, scores on the simulation task are normally distributed with μ = 60 and σ = 8. The individuals in the sample had an average score of M = 56.5 with s = 9.21.
