We will learn how to use this using the one- sample t-test from the first question on the problem set (calcium concentrations). Navigate to the site. Prominently displayed near the upper left of the page (below the cow) is a section titled “Select the analysis to be used in your study.” Java takes a moment to load, and then you will see a list of tests for which you can do a power analysis. Select “One-sample t test” and click “Run selection.” You will see the following: Resize it so that you can see everything on the bottom. On this screen, sigma is the standard deviation of the data, “True |mu - mu_0|” is the effect size, n is the sample size, power is 1- β , and alpha is α .

    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.
