Question

A random sample of 82 eighth grade students' scores on a national mathematics assessment test has a mean score of 292. This test result prompts a state school administrator to declare that the mean score for the state's eighth-graders on this exam is more than 285. Assume that the population standard deviation is 30. At α=0.14 is there enough evidence to support the administration's claim? Complete parts (a) through (e).

a) Write the claim mathematically and identify H0 and Ha. Choose the correct answer below.

(b) Find the standardized test statistic z, and its corresponding area.

z=____ (Round to two decimal places as needed.)

(c) Find the P-value.

P-value=_____ (Round to three decimal places as needed.)

(d) Decide whether to reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis

Reject H0 OR Fail to reject H0

(e) Interpret your decision in the context of the original claim.

At the 14 % significance level, there (IS/IS NOT) enough evidence to (SUPPORT/REJECT) the administrator's claim that the mean score for the state's eighth-graders on the exam is more than 285.

Answer #1

Solution :

This is the more tailed test .

The null and alternative hypothesis is ,

H_{0} :
= 285

H_{a} :
> 285

Test statistic = z

= ( - ) / / n

= (292 - 285) / 30 / 82

= 2.11

P(z > 2.11) = 1 - P(z < 2.11) = 0.0174

P-value = 0.0174

= 0.14

P-value <

Reject the null hypothesis .

At the 14 % significance level, there IS enough evidence to SUPPORT the administrator's claim that the mean score for the state's eighth-graders on the exam is more than 285.

A random sample of 84 eighth grade students' scores on a
national mathematics assessment test has a mean score of 294. This
test result prompts a state school administrator to declare that
the mean score for the state's eighth-graders on this exam is more
than 285. Assume that the population standard deviation is 31. At α
= 0.10, is there enough evidence to support the administration's
claim?

The scores of 12th-grade students on the National Assessment of
Educational Progress year 2000 mathematics test have a distribution
that is approximately Normal with mean µ = 292 and standard
deviation s = 32. Choose one 12th-grader at random. What is the
probability (±0.1) that his or her score is higher than 292? Higher
than 388 (±0.001)? Now choose an SRS of 16 twelfth-graders and
calculate their mean score x⎯⎯⎯. If you did this many times, what
would be the...

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) includes
a mathematical test for eighth-grade students. Scores on the test
range from 0 to 500. Suppose that you give the NAEP test to a
simple random sample of 900 eighth-graders from a large population
in which the scores have mean m = 285 and standard deviation s =
125. The mean will vary if you take repeated samples.
2. (2 points) The sampling distribution of is
approximately Normal. It has mean m =...
