Educational psychologist

An educational psychologist was curious whether students who consistently sit in
the front row of lectures achieved higher grades than students who consistently sit in the
back row. He published an online survey available to university students in which
participants self-reported which row they sat in during lectures throughout the semester
and the their final grade point average at the end of the semester. He was interested in
comparing the grade point averages of two groups of students: those who sat in front of the
class and those who sat in the back. What analysis should he perform?
