(1 point) When one changes the significance level of a hypothesis test from 0.01 to 0.05, which of the following will happen? Check all that apply. A. The test becomes less stringent to reject the null hy- pothesis (i.e., it becomes easier to reject the null hy- pothesis). B. It becomes easier to prove that the null hypothesis is true. C. The chance of committing a Type II error changes from 0.01 to 0.05. D. The chance that the null hypothesis is true changes from 0.01 to 0.05. E. It becomes harder to prove that the null hypothesis is true. F. The chance of committing a Type I error changes from 0.01 to 0.05. G. The test becomes more stringent to reject the null hypothesis (i.e. it becomes harder to reject the null hy- pothesis). Correct Answers: AF 2. (1 point) The smaller the P -value obtained in a hypothesis test, the stronger the evidence against the null hypothesis. the stronger the evidence against the null hypothesis, only if the test is two-sided. the stronger the evidence against the null hypothesis, only if the test is one-sided. the weaker the evidence against the null hypothesis. the weaker the evidence against the null hypothesis, only if the test is two-sided. the weaker the evidence against the null hypothesis, only if the test is one-sided. Correct Answers: the stronger ... hypothesis. 3. (1 point) For each problem, select the best response. (a) In formulating hypotheses for a statistical test of signifi- cance, the null hypothesis is often A. a statement that the data are all 0. B. the probability of observing the data you actually ob- tained C. 0.05 D. a statement of ”no effect” or ”no difference”. (b) The P -value of a test of a null hypothesis is A. the probability, assuming the null hypothesis is false, that the test statistic will take a value at least as extreme as that actually observed.

    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.
