Question

Test C is a standardized test that all high school seniors take. In an SRS of 28 seniors, the sample standard deviation is 16. A high school counselor hypothesizes that the mean score on Test C for all high school seniors is 59.

Here are the null and alternative hypotheses: H0 : µ = 59 H1 : µ not equal to 59

(a) How far (in points) above/below 59 would the sample mean have to be to reject the null hypothesis at the 10% level ?

(b) How far (in points) above/below 59 would the sample mean
have to be to reject the null hypothesis

at the 1% level?

Answer #1

**Solution:-**

**a) For rejection the points should be less than 53.85 or
greater than 64.15**

For rejection p-value for test should be less than 0.10.

t-score for the p-value = + 1.704

x > 64.15

x < 53.85

**b) For rejection the points should be less than 50.62 or
greater than 67.38.**

For rejection p-value for test should be less than 0.01.

t-score for the p-value = + 2.771

x > 67.38

x < 50.62

Past experience indicates that the time required for high school
seniors to complete a standardized test is a normal random variable
with a standard deviation of
88
minutes. Test the hypothesis that
sigma equals 8σ=8
against the alternative that
sigma less than 8σ<8
if a random sample of the test times of
2323
high school seniors has a standard deviation
s equals 6.18s=6.18.
Use a

level of significance.

An SRS of 16 Spokane County Schools' seniors had a mean SAT
Verbal score of 500 with a standard deviation of s = 100. We know
that the population is normally distributed. We wish to determine a
90% confidence interval for the mean SAT Verbal score µ for the
population of all seniors in the district.
a. Using the above data, the critical value has how many degrees of
freedom?
b. What is the critical value for the 90% confidence...

A researcher would like to determine the average score on
achievement tests among high school seniors attending Boulder High.
A sample of n=100 students is selected and each student
takes the test. The average score of the sample is 44 with an
estimated standard deviation of 12 (this was estimated from the
sample). Test the null hypothesis that the population mean
of Boulder High students is actually 40. Note that the
t-critical value for this degree of freedom is +/-...

In a school district, all sixth grade students take the same
standardized test. The superintendant of the school district takes
a random sample of 26 scores from all of the students who took the
test. She sees that the mean score is 121 with a standard deviation
of 14.3688. The superintendant wants to know if the standard
deviation has changed this year. Previously, the population
standard deviation was 24. Is there evidence that the standard
deviation of test scores has...

A popular, nationwide standardized test taken by high-school
juniors and seniors may or may not measure academic potential, but
we can nonetheless examine the relationship between scores on this
test and performance in college. We have chosen a random sample of
fifteen students just finishing their first year of college, and
for each student we've recorded her score on this standardized test
(from 400 to 1600 ) and her grade point average (from 0 to 4 ) for
her first...
