A football coach gives half his players a protein bar to eat before each game; the other players do not receive the protein bar. After a month of games, he analyzes their playing stats. He concludes the protein bar helped improve their performance on the field. How can the coach test the means to be sure the results are not likely to happen by chance?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To test whether a difference between treatment and control groups exists, the data can be rerandomized many times to test the probability that the difference of means that was found in the study is likely to happen by chance.
