The main objective of this paper is to evaluate the efficacy of double ranked set sampling method in teaching mathematics to the students. The notion of ranked set sampling for estimating the mean of a population and its advantage over the use of a simple random sampling for the sampling is established in the literature. Furthermore, the double ranked set sampling has proven to be even more efficient than RSS. In this research, we review the use of the DRSS to estimate the intercept, the slope, and the standard deviation of the error terms as parameters of a simple linear regression model of teaching mathematics to students, when replications exist at each value of the predictor. Finally, we illustrate the proposed procedure by applying it when the underlying distribution of the error terms is normal or Laplace. Regardless of the assumed number of replications in the experiment, we observe a substantial gain in relative precision while using DRSS procedure over using RSS technique.
