# Performance comparing

A standardized test was administered to thousands of students with a mean score of 85 and a standard deviation of 8. A random sample of 50 students was given the same test and showed an average score of 83.20. Is there evidence to show that this group has a lower performance than the ones in general at a 0.05 level?
