Question

A principal claims the students in his school have above-average test scores for a particular standardized test.

A sample of 50 students from his school were found to have an average test score of 77.2.

The population mean for test scores for this particular test is 75, with a standard deviation of 9 (so we can assume that the population test score is normally distributed).

Set up a hypothesis test to determine whether this principal’s claim is correct (use alpha of 0.05), and determine what constitutes a Type I error and Type II error in this case.

Answer #1

H0:Null Hypothesis: 75

HA: Alternative Hypothesis: 75

SE = /

= 9/ =1.2728

Test statistic is:

Z = (77.2 - 75)/1.2728 =1.73

= 0.05

One Tail - Right Side Test

From Table, critical value of Z = 1.645

Since calculated value of Z = 1.73 is greater than critical value of Z = 1.645, the difference is significant. Reject null hypothesis.

Conclusion:

The data support the claim that the students in his school have
above average test scores fora particular standardized test.

A principal at a certain school claims that the students in his
school are above average intelligence. A random sample of thirty
students IQ scores have a mean score of 112.5. Is there sufficient
evidence to support the principal’s claim? The IQ of the population
(Random Variable X) is assumed to be a normal distribution. The
mean population IQ is 100 with a standard deviation of 15. 1. Find
the rejection region area (given by your alpha level 0.05) from...

An administrator claims that the average test scores between two
instructors at a school are different. In a sample of 28 students
from the first instructor’s class, the average test score was 32
out of 50 points with a standard deviation of 5 points. In a sample
of 33 students from the second instructor’s class, the average was
29 out of 50 with a standard deviation of 6 points. Assuming both
populations are normally distributed and the population variances
are...

A random sample of 12 high school seniors took a standardized
mathematics test and made scores: 78, 78, 65, 77, 65, 81, 83, 59,
76, 75, 83, 59 Past scores at the same high school have been
Normally distributed with LaTeX: \sigma σ =9.3 Is this sample
evidence at the α =0.01 level that the average test score for all
students is less than 75? State the hypotheses and calculate a test

In a recent year, scores on a standardized test for high school
students with a 3.50 to 4.00 grade point average were normally
distributed, with a mean of 38.238.2 and a standard deviation of
2.22.2. A student with a 3.50 to 4.00 grade point average who took
the standardized test is randomly selected. (a) Find the
probability that the student's test score is less than 3737. The
probability of a student scoring less than 3737 is 0.29120.2912.

If the quality of teaching is similar in a school, the scores on
a standardized test will have a standard deviation of 27 . The
superintendent wants to know if there is a disparity in teaching
quality, and decides to investigate whether the standard deviation
of test scores has changed. She samples 25 random students and
finds a mean score of 161 with a standard deviation of 13.2914 . Is
there evidence that the standard deviation of test scores has...

If the quality of teaching is similar in a school, the scores on
a standardized test will have a standard deviation of 1616. The
superintendent wants to know if there is a disparity in teaching
quality, and decides to investigate whether the standard deviation
of test scores has changed. She samples 2626 random students and
finds a mean score of 166166 with a standard deviation of
17.982217.9822. Is there evidence that the standard deviation of
test scores has increased at...

The following data is the math test scores of students
graduating from a particular high school . The government uses
these scores to determine if there will be accreditation awarded.
In order for this to occur the mean score must be above 780. A
sample of students scores is drawn at random and they take the
test. The scores are in the following table and the population is
considered a normal distribution. Test at the .01
level.

If the quality of teaching is similar in a school, the scores on
a standardized test will have a standard deviation of 19. The
superintendent wants to know if there is a disparity in teaching
quality, and decides to investigate whether the standard deviation
of test scores has changed. She samples 22 random students and
finds a mean score of 110 with a standard deviation of 16.709. Is
there evidence that the standard deviation of test scores has
decreased at...

Assume that a hypothesis test of the given claim will be
conducted. Identify the type I or type II error for the test.
The principal of a school claims that the percentage of students
at his school that come from single-parent homes is 11%. Identify
the type II error for the test.

A high school principal was concerned about the time his
students were spending too much on internet in a week He randomly
selected 50 students and found that mean time on internet was home
work was 52.58 hours. Assume that the population standard deviation
was 10.2 hrs. Use alpha:=0.10α = 0.10 to test his claims that his
students spend significantly more than 50 hours in a week. In this
case, null hypothesis H0 is In this case, Test statistics TS...
