Question

write out all the steps of hypothesis testing including populations, hypotheses, cutoff scores, and all relevant calculations.

Nationwide survey in 92' showed US middle school students spend u=8.4 hours doing homework. Distribution is normal o=3.2. Previous year 100 middle school students and the mean of their homework time was 7.1. Was there a significant change in homework times.Test through a=.05

A student thinks he can reduce the time spent in institutions for people with severe depression. A director lets him try on 20 cases randomly sampled from the institution. The mean stay is 85 weeks with a standard deviation of 15 weeks. Scores are normally distributed. He bumped the stay of these patients to 78 weeks. What can be concluded from the study. Use a=.05

Answer #1

1)

Below are the null and alternative Hypothesis,

Null Hypothesis: μ = 8.4

Alternative Hypothesis: μ ≠ 8.4

Rejection Region

This is two tailed test, for α = 0.05

Critical value of z are -1.96 and 1.96.

Hence reject H0 if z < -1.96 or z > 1.96

Test statistic,

z = (xbar - mu)/(sigma/sqrt(n))

z = (7.1 - 8.4)/(3.2/sqrt(100))

z = -4.06

P-value Approach

P-value = 0

As P-value < 0.05, reject the null hypothesis.

2)

Below are the null and alternative Hypothesis,

Null Hypothesis: μ = 78

Alternative Hypothesis: μ ≠ 78

Rejection Region

This is two tailed test, for α = 0.05 and df = 19

Critical value of t are -2.093 and 2.093.

Hence reject H0 if t < -2.093 or t > 2.093

Test statistic,

t = (xbar - mu)/(s/sqrt(n))

t = (85 - 78)/(15/sqrt(20))

t = 2.087

P-value Approach

P-value = 0.051

As P-value >= 0.05, fail to reject null hypothesis.

For each problem students will write out all steps of hypothesis
testing including populations, hypotheses, cutoff scores, and all
relevant calculations.
A psychologist has developed a standardized test for measuring
the vocabulary skills of 4-year-old children. The scores on the
test form a normal distribution with μ = 60 and σ = 10. A
researcher would like to use this test to investigate the idea that
children who grow up with no siblings develop vocabulary skills at
a different rate...

The average age for licensed drivers in a county is 42.6, with a
standard deviation of 12, and the distribution is approximately
normal. A county police officer was interested in whether the
average age of those receiving speeding tickets is less that the
average age of the population who has a license. She obtained a
sample of 16 drivers...
