Question

**Testing one two three**. A professor wishes to
distribute one examination to each student in the class. What is
the most efficient way for her to determine whether she has more
students than exams: Pass out the exams or count?

Answer #1

The professor would want to know whether she has more students than tests because if students are more then she has to get more copies of tests but if tests are more in number she would have any problem and can give 1 test to each student. So in this situation the final aim is to distribute the test and to ensure that each student gets one.

So, it will be efficient if she passes out the tests and if the count falls short then get more copies. If she first takes the count of students, then also she has to distribute those tests. So counting students will be a futile exercise.

A professor gives an exam for which there are two versions, A
and B. Each student in the class is given one randomly selected
version of the exam. After the exam, the professor wishes to
determine if there is a difference in the level of difficulty of
the two versions by determining if there is a significant
difference in the mean scores. Assume α = 0.05.

(Note that this is not about chi-squared test per se, perhaps, it
is about what a statistical analysis (hypothesis testing in this
case) can tell us and what it cannot) Background - The Scholarship

Graduate students in a particular academic department take a
comprehensive exam, for which there are three possible results:
High Pass, Pass, or Fail. A researcher is trying to determine
whether the true probabilities associated with these three outcomes
are (0.35, 0.45, 0.20) for (High Pass, Pass, Fail). A sample of 200
graduate students was taken. In this sample, 51 received a High
Pass, 85 received a Pass, and 64 received a Fail. Using a
hypothesis test at alpha=0.05, assess whether...
