Student's t-test of the null hypothesis results in p = 0.88 (t = -0.416, sdev = 2.78, degrees of freedom = 79), thus there is no significant difference between the pre-test scores of these two sections.
Later this semester (spring semester 2014), a comparison will be made between the pre- to post-test gains for both sections, separate and combined.
