Question

A two-tailed hypothesis test is being used to evaluate a treatment effect with α = .05. If the sample data produce a z-score statistic of z = -1.24, then what is the correct decision?

Reject the null hypothesis and conclude that the treatment has no effect.

Reject the null hypothesis and conclude that the treatment has an effect.

Fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude that the treatment has an effect.

Fail to reject the null hypothesis and conclude that the treatment has no effect.

Answer #1

thank you.

a researcher conducts a hypothesis test to evaluate the effect
of the treatment. the hypothesis test produces a z-score of z=
2.75. Assuming that the researcher is using a two-tailed test,what
decision should be made?

a researcher conducts a hypothesis test to evaluate the effect
of the treatment that is expected to increases scores. the
hypothesis test produces a z-score of z= 2.75. if the researcher is
using a one tailed test, what is the correct statistical
decision?

A researcher conducted a single-sample null hypothesis test with
the z-statistic. The researcher reports that z = +1.30. This
z-statistic was calculated from sample data that was drawn from a
normal population. The researcher sets α = .05 and uses a
two-tailed test. On the basis of his data, the researcher decides
to fail to reject the null hypothesis. Did the researcher make the
correct decision or did he make an error? If he made an error, what

Some researchers claim that herbal supplements improve human
memory. To test this claim, a researcher selects a sample of n = 25
college students. Each student is given herbal supplements daily
for 6 weeks and then all the participants are given a standardized
memory test. For the population, scores on the tests are normally
distributed with µ = 70 and σ= 15. The sample of n = 25 students
had a mean score of M = 75. Can we conclude...

Is there a relationship between confidence intervals and
two-tailed hypothesis tests? Let c be the level of
confidence used to construct a confidence interval from sample
data. Let α be the level of significance for a two-tailed
hypothesis test. The following statement applies to hypothesis
tests of the mean.
For a two-tailed hypothesis test with level of significance
α and null hypothesis H0: μ =
k, we reject H0 whenever
k falls outside the c = 1 − α
confidence...

A researcher did a one-tailed hypothesis test using an alpha
level of .01, H0 was rejected.A colleague analyzed the same data
but used a two-tailed test with α=.05, H0 was failed to reject. Can
both analyses be correct? Explain your answer.
