Yes, it is a paired sample test and so you can not determine the t test
without knowing the correlation between the two assessments, unless, of
course, you have the standard deviation of the difference.

Subject: t-test with mean, sd, and n
I'd like to reanalyze some data form an article. They're looking to see
if variations in differences in math performance between 2 groups is a
function of math problem type (if the language in the problem is simple
or complex as determined by linguistics experts). All I have is means,
SD, and N.
Is there a way to do this? Is it some sort of paired samples t-test?
