Unformatted text preview: ysis of variance): Method of testing equality of three or more population means (by analyzing sample variances). Requirements: Populations have approximately normal distributions, populations have same variance s2, samples are simple random samples, and samples are independent. Decision criterion using significance level r : Pvalue … a: Pvalue 7 a: Reject null hypothesis of equal population means Fail to reject equality of population means. where test is righttailed using x2 distribution with df = k  1 and k number of samples Rank Correlation: Uses ranks to test for correlation from random paired data. rs: n: d: Rank correlation coefficient Number of pairs of sample data Difference between ranks for two values within a pair GoodnessofFit
GoodnessofFit Test: Test the null hypothesis that an observed frequency distribution fits claimed distribution. O: Observed frequency E: Expected frequency k: Number of different categories n: Total number of trials Requirements: Random data of frequency counts, and E Ú 5 for each category. Te...
