A maintenance supervisor is comparing the standard version of an instructional booklet with one that has been claimed to be superior. An experiment is conducted in which 26 technicians are divided into two groups, provided with one of the booklets, then given a test a week later. For the 13 using the standard version, the average exam score was 72.0, with a standard deviation of 9.3. For the 13 given the new version, the average score was 80.2, with a standard deviation of 10.1. Assuming normal populations with equal standard deviations, and using the 0.05 level of significance, does the new booklet appear to be better than the standard version?
