Description of the problem
The objective was to evaluate if the MOOC technology was useful in increasing the
scores of the students. Taking this into account, a class of 30 students followed half the course on
statistics with lectures, and half the course where given the chance of using the MOOC
technology to help them in their study, apart from the lectures.
Taking this into account, the experiment has been well planned because it has considered
all the possible confounding variables (e.g. different students would have scored differently).
Thus, by using the same students, the researcher and the university can assume that their
performance during both halves of the course would be the same, and that if there is any
significant difference in their performance, this difference will be due to the implementation of
the MOOC technology during the second half of the year.

Description of the data
Taking the above into account, the data consists on the scores of the 30 students on the
midterm and the final exams. In this sense, the midterm exam would represent the “background”
or reference model, since it is during the first half of the course that students follow a normal
lecture schedule. In contrast, the final test represents the “sample” model, since it is the one for
which we expect to observe any difference in the case that the MOOC technology did really play
any role in improving the academic success of the students.
The scores obtained by the 30 students on both exams are presented in table 1.
