• The general steps for a hypothesis test using P -values

Stating a Hypothesis

Paraphrased from our text - section 7.1

DEFINITION

Must contain the condition of equality, such as ≤, =, ≥.

2. The alternative hypothesis is a statistical hypothesis to be considered as an alternative to the null

hypothesis, denoted Ha . It is the complement of H0 . This is the statement that must be true if the null

hypothesisis false.

Contains the condition of inequality, such as <, 6=, >.

Remarks

No, matter which which hypothesis H0 or Ha represents the claim, you always assume that H0 is true.

When we perform a hypothesis test we make one of two possible decisions:

1. reject the null hypothesis

2. fail to reject the null hypothesis

DEFINITION

A type I error: rejecting the null hypothesis when it is in fact true.

A type II error: Not rejecting the null hypothesis when it is in fact false.

Truth of H0

Decision H0 is true H0 is false

Compare with the legal system used in the United States.

Verdict Innocent Guilty

The test statistic is a value computed from the sample data that is used in making the decision about the rejection

of the null hypothesis. The test statistic converts the sample statistic to a z-score with the assumption that the null

hypothesis is true.

DEFINITION

In a hypothesis test, the level of significance is your maximum allowable probability of making a type I error,

denoted α.

Thus, the level of significance is the probability that the test statistic will fall in a (critical) region, that will cause us to

reject the null hypothesis when the null hypothesis is actually true.

DEFINITION

If the null hypothesisis true, a P -value (or probability value) of a hypothesis test is the the probability of

obtaining a sample statistic with a value as extreme or more extreme than the one determined from the sample

data.

Remarks

1. By extreme we mean: far from what we would expect to observe if the null hypothesis is true.

2. In other words, a small P -value indicates that observation of the test statistic would be unlikely if the null hypothesis

is true.

The lower the P -value, the more evidence there is in favor of rejecting the null hypothesis.

A small P -value indicates a rare occurrence. (Not proof that H0 is false)

3. The P -value depends on the type of hypothesis test. There are three types left-tailed, right-tailed and two-tailed.

Decision Rule Based on P -value

To use a P -value to make a conclusion in a hypothesis test, compare the P -value with α

1. If P ≤ α, then reject H0 .

2. If P > α, then fail to reject H0 .

Remarks

1. Failing to reject H0 does not mean that you have accepted H0 as true

2. If you wish to support a claim, state it so that it is Ha

3. If you wish to disprove a claim, then state it as H0

Claim

Decision Claim is H0 . Claim is Ha

ject the claim support the claim

Fail to Reject H0 . There is Not enough evidence There is Not enough evidence

to reject the claim to support the claim

1. State the claim. Identify the null hypothesis and alternative hypothesis.

2. Specify the level of significance, α. (will be provided)

4. Calculate the test statistic and its standardized value (add to graph) - NEXT CLASS

5. Find the P -value.

left-tailed test: P = (Area in left tail)

right-tailed test: P = (Area in right tail)

two-tailed test: P = 2(Area in tail of test statistic)

6. Use the decision rule.

If P ≤ α, then reject H0

If P > α, then fail to reject H0

7. Write a statement to interpret the decision in the context of the original claim.
