Detailed Steps in Hypothesis Testing: 1. Evaluate data: Present the problem, the random sample size, mean, standard deviation, what the sample represents, etc. 2. Review assumptions: Rules: One-sample tests of significance: a. Sample size less then 15: use one-sample tests of significance if data are close to normal. If the data are clearly non-normal, or if outliers are present, do not use one-sample t and Z tests. b. Sample size at least 15: the one-sample tests of significance can be used except in the presence of outliers or strong skewness.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
