Educational researchers randomly assigned 28 ninth-year students in Australia to receive coordinate geometry training in one of two ways: a conventional way and a modified way. After the training, the students were asked to solve a coordinate geometry problem. The time to complete the problem was recorded, but five students in the “conventional” group did not complete the solution in the five minute alloted time.
A data frame with 28 observations on the following 3 variables.
the time (in seconds) that the student worked on the problem
factor variable with two
1 if the individual did not complete the problem in 5 minutes, 0 if they did
