Question 20A researcher wants to determine if extra homework problems help 8th grade students learn algebra. An 8th grade class is divided into pairs and one student from each pair has extra homework problems and the other in the pair does not.

That each pair of students has similar ages at the time of the testing

That the group without extra homework problems receives different instruction
