Description

This dataset shows the Economics exam performance of 1124 university students based on their gender and the exam type. Exam type can be either type A or type B. Questions in exam type A follow the course syllabus order. Questions in exam type B are scrambled and follow a random order. The following hypothesis can be tested from this data: - Is there a difference in mean student scores based on gender? - Is there a difference in mean student scores based on exam type? - What is the correlation between midterm and final exam scores?
