Seventy-five junior-level accounting majors that were enrolled in an Intermediate Financial Accounting class participated in this experiment. Students took a pretest on a topic not covered in class and then each was given a homework problem to solve on the same topic. A completely randomized design was employed, with students assigned to receive one of three different levels of assistance on their homework:

(1) No help at all; (2) Check figures at various steps of the solution; (3) Completed solution.

After finishing the homework, each student was all given a posttest on the subject. The dependent variable of interest to the researchers was the knowledge gain (test score improvement), measured as the difference between the posttest and pretest scores.

A. Choose the Hypothesis
B. Specify the Decision Rule
