On a standard anagram task, people successfully complete an average µ=26 anagrams with a standard deviation=4. This distribution is normal.
A researcher would like to demonstrate that the arousal from anxiety is distracting and will decrease task performance. A sample of n=14 anxietyridden participants is tested on the task.
The average number of anagrams solved is M=23.36. Do the anxietyridden participants show a decrease in task performance?
