Fall 2002 2 Hypothesis testing 1.3 INCORRECT DECISIONS 1.3.1 TYPE I ERROR 1.3.1.1 null hypothesis is true; we reject it as false 1.3.1.2 probability is called ' " ' 1.3.1.3 known as level of significance 1.3.1.4 determined by researcher 1.3.2 TYPE II ERROR 1.3.2.1 null hypothesis is false; we accept IT as true 1.3.2.2 probability is called ' $ ' 1.3.2.4 affected by sample size, level of significance ( " ), variance in population, etc.

Fall 2002 3 Hypothesis testing 1.4 INTERACTION OF " and $ 1.4.1 " is probability of committing a type I error on single sample drawn from population 1.4.2 desirable to keep " as low as possible 1.4.3 BUT as one decreases " , $ increases 1.4.4 SO one must balance the two types of ‘errors’. 1.5 POWER OF THE TEST 1.5.1 DEFINITION: the power of the test is the probability of detecting a difference if in fact a difference of a given size exists 1.5.2 power of test = 1 - $
