A professor of statistics hands back his graded midterms in class by calling out the name of each student and personally handing the exam over to its owner. At the end of the process, he notes that there are several exams left over, the result of students missing that class. He forms the theory that the absence is caused by a poor performance by those students on the test. If the theory is correct, the leftover papers will have lower marks than those papers handed back. He recorded the marks (out of 100) for the leftover papers and the marks of the returned papers. Do the data support the professor’s theory?
