Step 3: Set α
If we look at what can happen in a hypothesis test, we can construct the following contingency table:
Step 4: Collect Data
Remember the importance of recognizing whether data is collected through an experimental design or observational.
Step 5: Calculate a test statistic
Step 6: Construct Acceptance / Rejection regions
Step 7: Based on steps 5 and 6, draw a conclusion about H0
