Chapter 4. Hypothesis testing The main aim of the module is to familiarize students with the theoretical knowledge of hypothesis testing and then train them in applying theory to economic practice. After completing this module‚ students will be familiar with: the procedure of hypothesis testing; the possible outcomes in hypothesis testing; the difference between significant and nonsignificant statistical findings. After completing this module‚ students will be able to:

Open Document1. (12 points) In this recession‚ yours truly would like to make extra money to support his frequent filet-mignon-et-double-lobster-tail dinner habit. A promising enterprise is to mass-produce garnet wedding rings for brides. Based on my diligent research‚ I have found out that women’s ring size normally distributed with a mean of 6.0‚ and a standard deviation of 1.0. I am going to order 5000 garnet wedding rings from my reliable Siberian source. They will manufacture ring size from 4.0‚ 4

Open Documentfive steps of hypothesis testing and the 5% significance level (i.e. alpha = .05)‚ does showing the film change students’ attitudes towards the chronically mentally ill? What does it mean to set alpha at .05? Alpha means making a Type I error same as significance level. When the alpha is at .05 it means that the researcher doesn’t want to take a big risk therefore sets the alpha to .05. By doing this it will make it hard for hypothesis testing process to reject the null hypothesis unless it is

Open DocumentRandom samples of size n are selected from each of k populations. It will be assumed that the k populations are independent and normally distributed with means [pic][pic] and common variance [pic]. We wish to derive appropriate methods for testing the hypothesis: [pic] [pic] [pic] at least two of the means are not equal. Table 1 K random samples | |Population | | |

Alpha at .05 means there is a .05 probability or 5% chance of committing a Type I error‚ which means that we have rejected our null hypothesis and found support for our alternate hypothesis when‚ in fact‚ the null hypothesis was true. • What is your null hypothesis? Alternate hypothesis? Ho :

Open Documentunderstanding of hypothesis testing. The textbook explained the aspects and steps of hypothesis testing in a legible fashion‚ while the video helped demonstrate a real-life application. I learned from the text that hypothesis testing is a “Procedure for deciding whether the outcome of a study (results from a sample) supports a particular theory or practical innovation (which is thought to apply to a population)” (Aron A.‚ Aron‚ E.‚ and Coups‚ 2011‚ p. 145). I also learned that hypothesis testing
