Question

A way to control for chance finding in an experiement

1- blind

2-increase sample size

3 - randomize

Answer #1

**1.Blind**

- Blinding refers to the concealment of group allocation from one or more individuals involved in a clinical research study, most commonly a randomized controlled trial (RCT)
- Randomization minimizes differences between treatment groups at the outset of the trial, it does nothing to prevent differential treatment of the groups later in the trial or the differential assessment of outcomes, either of which may result in biased estimates of treatment effects.
- The optimal strategy to minimize the likelihood of differential treatment or assessments of outcomes is to blind as many individuals as possible in a trial.

The easiest way to affect the outcome of a hypothesis test is
to increase sample size. Similarly, true results may sometimes be
missed because a sufficient sample was not used in the research.
Perform the hypothesis test on these data with a sample of 37. Then
perform the same hypothesis test but assume that the mean was based
on only 4 infants.
The easiest way to increase statistical power is to increase
sample size. Similarly, statistical power decreases with a...

Power and sample size determination for one-way ANOVA 1. If µ1 =
12, µ2 = 13, µ3 = 18 and µ4 = 21 with s e = 5, what is the power of
the test when n1 = 2, n2 = 3, n3 = 3 and n4 = 2 and a = .05? 2. If
µ1 = 12, µ2 = 13, µ3 = 18 and µ4 = 21 with s e = 5, what is the
power of the test...

An x̅ chart with a sample size of 4 is used to control the mean
of a normally distributed quality characteristic. It is known that
process standard deviation is 8. The upper and lower control limits
of the chart are 147 and 123 respectively. Assume the process mean
shifts to 121.
What is the probability that this shift is detected on the first
subsequent sample?
What is expected number of samples taken before the shift is
detected?

What are the odds of finding non-coding DNA that by
chance in a given reading frame would have an open reading frame of
length 20 if each nucleotide occurs at equal frequency in the
genome?
1. 38%
2. 36%
3. 17%
4. <1%
4. 42%

1. The Central Limit Theorem tells us that as the sample size
increases, the center of the sampling distribution of x ̅
____________.
a. increases
b. decreases
c. stays the same
2. The Central Limit Theorem tells us that as the sample size
increase, the spread of the sampling distribution of x ̅
____________.
a. increases
b. decreases
c. stays the same
3. What is the best way we know to generate data that give a
fair and accurate picture...

a casino game prize .2 chance of winning $10, .3 chance of
winning $5, .4 chance of winning $1 and a .1 chance of losing and
getting nothing. What is the break even value?

Find the length of the astroid x^(2/3) + y^(2/3) = 1 by finding
the length of half the first-quadrant portion (sqrt(2)/4 <= x
<=1 ) and multiplying with 8.

If you are suspicious of the chance a candidate being chosen is
1/4, and a sample of 6 random and independent people show the rate
in which the candidate to be chosen to be 1/2 (where 3 approve and
3 disapprove). Given, with a α = 0.05, is this enough information
to prove that chance in which the candidate to be chosen is higher
than 1/4.

TRUE/FALSE. Explain.
1.) Power + B (beta) = 1
2.) You can increase power and decrease (Alpha) at the same time
by increasing sample size.
3.) alpha= 1- beta
4.) alpha is the significance level and the probability of type
II error
5.)Type II error is rejection the null when the null is
true.
6.)There is more than one way to increase power.
7.)Statistical significance implies practical significance.

1.Simulate 100 confidence intervals with a 90% confidence level.
Choose a sample size between 2 and 20. Look at your confidence
intervals. Take note of their width. Now increase the sample size
to something between 30 and 100. Look at your confidence intervals.
Finally, increase your sample size to 1000. Look at your confidence
intervals. How does sample size affect your confidence intervals?
Explain.
2. Simulate 100 confidence intervals with a 90% confidence
level. Choose a sample size between 30...
