(a) What is the population for this study?

(b) What is the sample?

(c) Is the sample a random sample? Explain why or why not.

(d) Do you think that the instructor should conclude that the opinions of the 3 students who remained after class represent those of the entire class? Explain why or why not.

You are interested in whether a study intervention significantly
affects students’ grades on a statistics exam. You recruit a sample
of 36 students from a normally distributed population with µ = 75
and s = 7.5. You chose an alpha level of .05 and perform a
two-tailed hypothesis test. After participating in the study
intervention, the students’ statistics exam average is 79. Perform
a z-test to determine whether the study intervention significantly
affected students’ exam grades. (0.5 points)
a) After...

A calculus instructor is interested in finding the strength of a
relationship between the final exam grades of students enrolled in
Calculus I and Calculus II at his college. The data (in
percentages) are listed below. Complete the hypothesis test to
predict the Calculus II grade if the Calculus I grade was 80?
Calculus 1: 88 78 62 75 95 91 83 86 98
Calculus 2: 81 80 55 78 90 90 81 80 100

A small private college is interested in determining the
percentage of its students who live off campus and drive to class.
It is claimed that less than 20% of their current students live off

An instructor believes that students do not retain as much
information from a lecture on a Friday compared to a Monday. To
test this belief, the instructor teaches a small sample of college
students some preselected material from a single topic on
statistics on a Friday and on a Monday. All students received a
test on the material. The differences in exam scores for material
taught on Friday minus Monday are listed in the following table.
Difference Scores (Friday −...

We are interested in the proportion of students in our data
analysis class who love the normal distribution. Our class has
about 30 students. Suppose that the true proportion in our class
who love the normal distribution is 20%. (A surprisingly low value.
Ha ha.) We sample 10 students out of 30 to be surveyed about their
love for the normal distribution. Let X= # in the sample of 10 who
love the normal distribution. Explain why we cannot say...

ou are interested in knowing whether wealthier people are
happier. You collected data from fifty people about their incomes
and their overall happiness levels on a scale of 1 to 10. Upon
analyzing the results, you find that the correlation coefficient
has a value of −0.25. On the basis of this data, respond to the
following:
How would you interpret the correlation coefficient in terms of
strength and direction?
How would the results be affected if you increased the number...

3. A randomly selected sample of 14 students who stayed up all
night to study for an exam received an average grade of 68% with a
standard deviation of 8%. Another randomly selected sample of 12
students who wrote the same exam after a good night’s sleep
received an average grade of 75% with a standard deviation of 7%.
At a 5% significance level, does the sample provide enough
statistical evidence to support a claim that students who stay
awake...

Do students who take SAT coaching classes improve their test
scores? Seven students were selected randomly from all of the
students who completed an SAT coaching class in a given year. For
each student, the first SAT score (before the class) and the second
SAT score (after the coaching class) were recorded. The data is
summarized below:
Student 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 First SAT score 920 820 960 920 1060 860
1010 Second SAT score 1030 800...

1.
The average final exam score for the statistics course is 78%. A
professor wants to see if the average final exam score for students
who are given colored pens on the first day of class is different.
The final exam scores for the 11 randomly selected students who
were given the colored pens are shown below. Assume that the
distribution of the population is normal.
77, 58, 53, 90, 83, 77, 51, 72, 53, 68, 81
