Are differences between two groups meaningful or did they occur by chance? Be re-randomizing data and using charts, we can both better understand the issues and potentially understand the likely impact.
- [Instructor] A certain school has 200 students.…The students are randomly assigned…to two different groups of 100 students.…Each of the 100 students in the first group is given…a math textbook to learn a certain math concept.…We'll call this Group A.…The second group of 100 students is asked to watch…an online video to learn the same math concept.…We'll call this Group B.…Each group is given 30 minutes to learn the math concept.…
After the 30 minutes are up each of the 200 students…takes an exam with 20 questions.…The students that learn from the online video, Group B,…they had a median test score that was five questions higher…than the students that learned from the textbook, Group A.…Students that watched the video…had a median score of 17 out of 20.…Students that learned the concept from the textbook…had a median score of 12 out of 20.…
Is the video a more effective teaching tool…or did this outcome just happen by chance?…In other words, were most of the students that were better…at math just happened to be assigned to the group…
