Type I error: Rejecting H 0 when it is true. Type II error: Failing to reject H 0 when it is false. α=P(type I error) = P(reject H 0 when H 0 is true) P-value is smallest level of significance that would lead to rejection of H 0 . 1) Parameter of interest 2) Null Hypothesis 3) Alternative Hypothesis 4) Test statistic 5) Reject H0 if… 6) Computations 7) Conclusions Inference on the mean of a population, variance known Random sample size n, normally distributed. = - / Z0 X μ0σ n P-value: ( - ( )) 2 1 ϕ Z0 for two-sided. 1-sided = 1-Φ(Z 0 ) when µ > µ o , or Φ(Z 0 ) when µ < µ 0 .
