Transparent Rarity By simplifying results down to a binary characterization of statistical (non) significance, hypothesis tests needlessly sacrifice information about the true rarity of the sample outcome relative to H 0 p- Values - indicate the probability, given a particular hypothesis test and a true H 0 , of having observed a result that was as extreme or more extreme than the value obtained for the sample 2

Determining p-Values for z Tests 1) Carry out the hypothesis test 2) Look up z to find the proportion in Column C 3a) If the hypotheses are directional, the proportion in Column C is your p -Value 3b) If the hypotheses are nondirectional, the p -Value is double the proportion in Column C 3 If rounding of z is necessary to find the value in the z table, round z to be closer to zero
