2 VII. Sampling Distribution Objectives You should know everything there is to know about . . . • Sampling distributions • Mean of sampling distribution • Sample size • Central limit theorem VII. Sampling Distribution 7.1 Inferential Statistics Population select Sample infer Inferential Statistics • Experimental method in the behavioral sciences • Hypothesize • Sample • Determine probability • Probability of sample given hypothesized population •Dec ide Inferential Statistics • Propose a hypothesis about a given population • Select a sample • Determine probability that sample came from the hypothesized population •Use inferential statistics • Accept or reject your hypothesis based on the probability of the sample

3 Example • Hypothesize • The population of students in PSY 207 has a mean IQ of 100 • μ = 100 • Sample • We randomly select 10 students and test their IQs • M = 120 Example • Determine the probability of obtaining a sample with M = 120 from a population with μ = 100 • If sample with M = 120 is probable, accept hypothesis • If sample with M = 120 is not probable, reject hypothesis Inferential Statistics • Inferential statistics use probabilities to test hypotheses about populations based on samples Sampling Distribution 7.1 Inferential Statistics 7.2 Sampling Distributions • We now know how to use the standard normal curve to determine probabilities for choosing samples of size 1 • If the population mean and standard deviation are known -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 3 • We now know how to use the standard normal curve to determine probabilities for choosing samples of size 1 • If the population mean and standard deviation are known • But we almost never will choose samples of size 1
