### 8.1

1. 1. 8.1 INTRODUCTION TO STATISTICAL TESTS CHAPTER 8: HYPOTHESIS TESTING
2. 2. Page 411 INFERENTIAL STATISTICS• Inferential statistics involves methods of using information from a sample to draw conclusions regarding the population. • Most statistical inference centers around the parameters of a population (usually the mean or probability of success in a binomial trial) • In Chapter 7, we focused on estimating the value of the parameter • In this chapter, we will focus on decisions concerning the value of a parameter and hypothesis testing • To introduce statistical tests, we will discuss the mean, however the methods apply to other parameters as well

8. 8. Page 413 BASIC PROCESS OF HYPOTHESIS TESTS1. State the null and alternate hypotheses2. Take a simple random sample and compute a sample test statistic3. Use the sampling distribution of the test statistic and the type of test to compute the P-value4. Conclude the test5. Interpret the results

11. 11. TYPES OF ERRORS Page 416• Type I and Type II Errors Table 8-2
12. 12. TYPES OF ERRORS• For tests of hypotheses to be well constructed, they must be designed to minimize possible errors of decision. (Usually, we do not know if an error has been made, and therefore, we can talk only about the probability of making an error.)
