of testing, or a statement about a population parameter subject to verification. Hypothesis testing is a procedure, based on sample

evidence and probability theory, used to determine whether the hypothesis is unreasonable statement and should be rejected or is

reasonable and should not be rejected.

Hypothesis Testing Steps. 1) State null & alternate hypothesis. 2) Select a level of significance (the probability of rejecting H0

when it is true. 3) Identify the test statistic (t/z) 4) Formulate a decision rule (where will you reject H0?) (.5- α, find that # on the

t/z chart. Coordinating # is critical point. 5) Take a sample, arrive at decision (complete formula t/z). 6) Fail to reject or reject H0

H0 is a statement that needs to be tested about the numerical value of a population parameter (no difference/no change/the current

or reported condition). H1 is a statement that describes what you will conclude if you reject H0 (alternate hypothesis/research

hypothesis/boastful claim).

H0 status quo—nothing changes in situation (smoking is NOT harmful to your health (nothing changes whether you smoke or not).

True: If reject H0 when α is .05, you will reject it when α is .01

In real life most times standard deviation not known.

False: If reject H0when α is .01, you will reject it when α is .05

You should be able to reject at any smaller alpha α

How do we differentiate between dependent and independent samples?

1.Dependent sample is characterized by a measurement followed by an intervention of some

kind and then another measurement. This could be called a “before” and “after” study.

2.Dependent sample is characterized by matched pairs; that is, matching or pairing

observations for each subject in the sample.

Why do we prefer dependent samples to independent samples?

By using dependent samples, we are able to reduce the variation in the sampling distribution.

Finding the value of the test statistic requires two steps. the degrees of freedom are computed by an approximation

1. Both populations must follow the normal distribution. formula, and then rounded down . The reason for rounding down

2. Both populations must have equal variances. is to reduce the number of degrees of freedom in the test, which

3. The samples are from independent populations. will require a larger value of the test statistic to reject the null

hypothesis.
