We had to do an experiment in my research methods class. Me and my group did an experiment where we tested if participants remembered words better with or without pictures that match the words.

So now we have two sets of data: One set with the number of words they remembered and one set with the number of words they remembered when the words were paired with pictures.

Now we simply have no idea what to do, we never did statistics and my professor explains literally nothing. I know that we have to know if our hypothesis (that words can be better remembered with photos) is true or must be rejected.

How can we know if we can reject the null hypothesis? Like how do I even proceed/what do I do with our two data sets?

I hope someone can tell me!

Thank you and sorry if my English sucks
