An educational psychologist was interested in whether using a student’s own name in a story affected children’s attention span while reading. Six children were randomly assigned to read a story under ordinary conditions (using names like Dick and Jane). Five other children read versions of the same story, but with each child’s own name substituted for one of the children in the story. The researcher kept a careful measure of how long it took each child to read the story. Results are shown below with longer times indicative of shorter attention spans. Using a two-tailed test, determine whether including the child’s name made a difference in attention span.
