# 8. I am interested in whether

8. I am interested in whether or not students who fail thisstatistics course one semester do better on their teststhe second time they take the class. To examine this, I record thetest scores for a sample of 10 students who took the class lastsemester and are repeating the class this semester. The test scoresfor these 10 students are reported below for last semester and thissemester. Conduct the appropriate hypothesis test to determinewhether or not student scores are significantly greaterfor students taking the class the second semester compared to theirscores the first semester. State a type of a test, the null andresearch hypotheses, the critical value, obtained t statistic, yourconclusion, and interpret your results (Alpha = .05). (6pt)
