The experiment to determine the effect of taking a preparatory course to improve SAT scores in Exercise A13.16 was criticized by other statisticians. They argued that the first test would provide a valuable learning experience that would produce a higher test score from the second exam even without the preparatory course. Consequently, another experiment was performed. Forty students wrote the SAT without taking any preparatory course.
At the next scheduled exam (3 months later), these same students took the exam again (again with no preparatory course). The scores for both exams were recorded in columns 1 (first test scores) and 2 (second test scores). Can we infer that repeating the SAT produces higher exam scores even without the preparatory course?
