Question 9

Two high school students took equivalent language tests, one in German and one in French. The student taking the German test, for which the mean was 66 and the standard deviation was 8, scored an 82, while the student taking the French test, for which the mean was 27 and the standard deviation was 5, scored a 35. Use zscores to compare the scores.
a. A score of 82 with a mean of 66 and a standard deviation of 8 is better.b. The two scores are statistically the same.c. You cannot determine which score is better from the given information.d. A score of 35 with a mean of 27 and a standard deviation of 5 is better.
