Question

9- The dean of the school wants to know the proportion of students in the school who prefer online classes for the next semester. How do you conduct a research to estimate this proportion by sampling (suppose that you can take only one sample of size n which is smaller than the population size N, and also suppose that a %90 percent confidence interval is fine). - You should explain all steps you take including how you make decision about sample size, what question you ask from the sample, the estimator you choose and the reason for that, how you calculate this estimator, and how you build a confidence interval for the parameter based on this estimator

Answer #1

We should take a sample that is randomly selected of a size >=120 so that it's relatively large to make assumptions about the population of size N.

The question asked to the students would be "Do you prefer Online classes to live classes?" Their responses in the form of Yes/No could be recorded and the sample proportion would be number of people who said yes/n

Then 90% CI for the population proportion p would be given as:

+- z0.05*√(1-)/n

Where z0.05= 1.645 (from the standard normal distribution tables)

A survey is planned to determine what proportion of high-school
students in a metropolitan school system have regularly smoked
marijuana. The school administrators would like to estimate the
proportion with 95 % confidence and a margin of error of no more
than 4%.
It was reported that 31.03% of high school students in a
similar metropolitan area regularly smoke marijuana. If this
estimate is used, what sample size would be required? n =
If the administrators choose not to use...

A researcher wants to construct a 95% confidence interval for
the proportion of elementary school students in Seward County who
receive free or reduced-price school lunches. What sample size is
needed so that the confidence interval will have a margin of error
of 0.03?

A dean of a business school wanted to know whether the graduates
of her school used the statistic skills that they learn in
university during their first year of employment after graduation.
As of today there are 34,050 graduates in total from the business
school. The Dean is committed to allocate more funding to the
development of the school’s statistics course if at least 17% of
its graduates use statistics skills during their first year of
employment. She surveyed 500...

The Dean of Students at a large university wanted to estimate
the proportion of students who are willing to report cheating by
fellow students.
So, her staff surveyed 172 students currently enrolled in the
introduction to biology class. The students were asked, “Imagine
that you witness
two students cheating on a quiz. Would you tell the professor?”
19 of the surveyed students responded “yes.”
Using these data, calculate a 95% confidence interval for the
proportion of all students at the...

The principal of a large local high school wants to know what
proportion of her students are planning to attend college. Suppose
that 72% of all students in her high school are planning to attend
college. What is the probability that an SRS of size 200 will give
a sample proportion between 66% and 78%?

Suppose the university wants to determine what proportion of
students prefer online tests to in-class tests. The university
invites the students to participate in a survey and out of 130
students that responded 39 prefer online testing.
(a)
Find the 90% confidence interval for the true proportion of
students that prefer online testing.
(b)
What is the minimum number of students that should answer the
survey in order to know with at least 98% certainty that the true
proportion of...

Suppose that a dean of a private school wants to estimate the
mean IQ of her student body without having to go through the time
and expense of administering the tests to all 1,000 students.
Instead, she selects 25 students at random and gives them the test.
She finds that the mean for her sample is 105.
Calculate the 95% confidence interval.

1. A university Dean is interested in determining the proportion
of students who receive
some sort of financial aid. Rather than examine the records for all
students, the dean randomly selects
200 students and finds that 118
of them are receiving financial aid. By hand, and using formulas
for the
“Margin of Error” (i.e. not calculator confidence interval), find a
98% confidence interval to estimate
the true proportion of students on financial aid. (Use 3 decimal
places for proportions.)

4a The Dean of USD’s School of Business wants to estimate of the
percentage of undergraduate students who do an internship. He wants
to be 92% confident that the margin of error is less than 3
percent. Previous studies have shown this proportion to be around
66%..How large of a sample must he take?
