Unformatted text preview: Stat 665 (Spring 2011) Kaizar Homework 1 Due by the beginning of class, Friday April 8 . Aim of Homework : To review concepts of Wald, score and likelihood ratio testing. To review concepts of tests and confidence intervals for binomial proportions. To understand the discreteness of exact tests and intervals. Reading : An Introduction to Categorical Data Analysis, 2nd edition: Chapter 1. Exercises (Use R to complete as appropriate): 40 points total 1. (6 points) Agresti problem 1.8 (use both the score and exact methods dont use Wald!) 2. (8 points) Agresti problem 1.12 3. (10 points) I mentioned in class that the discreteness of the Binomial random variable can be problematic for constructing tests and confidence intervals. Suppose you are designing an experiment with sample size 6 so that the number of successful trials ( Y ) can be modeled as having a Bionomial(6, ) distribution....
