What does it mean? We have devised a procedure that controls the probability of incorrectly rejecting H o . Suppose we do not reject H o . Is the null hypothesis true or do we simply have too little evidence to reject H o ?
Possible Decisions: A Court of Law Correct Decision Innocent person goes to jail Convict Guilty person is free Correct Decision Acquit Guilty Innocent Reality: Decision H o : Innocent Assume true until inconsistent with evidence Possible Decisions: Correct Decision Type I error Reject H o Type II error Correct Decision Do Not Reject H o False True Reality: H o is Decision Vocabulary: Type I Error: rejecting H o when it is in fact true.

### What students are saying

• 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.
