Stats 250 - Fall 2010 – Sunday Exam 2 Review - SOLUTIONS Page 1 1 - Cyberbullying – involves the use of communication technologies to support deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior by an individual or group, that is intended to harm others. A recent study of 200 high school males and 400 high school females resulted in 20% of the males and 26% of the females reporting they have been victims of cyberbullying. Assume these study results come from independent random samples. You are asked to use these results to test the theory that high school females are cyberbullied more than high school males, at the 5% level, i.e, Ho: p 1 = p 2 vs Ha: p 1 < p 2 , a. Here, p 1 = the proportion for the population of high school males who have been victims of cyberbullying. b. Suppose the resulting test statistic is z = -1.6 and the corresponding p -value is 0.055. Consider the following statements and determine which are true regarding this study. The results are statistically significant at the 5% level. At the 5% level, the cyberbullying rate for high school females does not appear to be higher than that for high school males. The probability that the null hypothesis is true is estimated to be 5.5%. The cyberbullying rate for the sampled high school males was 1.6 (null) standard errors below the cyberbullying rate for the sampled high school females. One condition for this test to be valid is that the models for the response for each population is normal. 2 - Grading Papers – Suppose Jane is curious about the factors that influence paper grading by professors. She has a hunch that papers that are typed are rated higher than papers that are handwritten on average. To test her hunch she conducted a study. A total of 43 freshman students are currently taking an English class and 20 of the students wrote their latest paper by hand, while the other 23 students typed their latest paper. All submitted papers were graded by the professor who teaches the English class. Jane obtained the scores from the professor and whether the paper had been written by hand or typed. She entered the data into SPSS and the following output was obtained. A 5% significance

    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.
