3 Example: two-sided test ± Suppose Guido takes a random sample of n =25 and obtains an average burn rate of 51.3 cm/s. ± Specs require that burn rate must be 50 cm/s, and the standard deviation is known to be 2 cm/s. ± He decides to specify a type I error probability (significance level) of 0.05. ± What conclusions can be drawn? 4 P-value ± The P-value is the smallest level of significance that would lead to rejection of the null hypothesis H0 with the given data. < = > = = = 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 : H : H : test for ) z ( : H : H : test for ) z ( 1 : H : H : test for |)] z (| 1 [ 2 P µ Φ
5 Probability of Type II Error ± The probability of the type II error is the probability that Z 0 falls between -z α /2 and z α /2 given that H 1 is true.
