Previously: Tests and CIs for : known (use z and , Chapter 6.1-6.2) Tests and CIs for : unknown (use t and s , Chapter 7.1) Errors and power in significance testing (Chapter 6.3-6.4) Current topics: Extending the ideas behind hypothesis tests for Linking tests with CIs (Chapter 6.2) Hypothesis tests for matched pairs (Chapter 7.1) Sample size calculations (not in M,M&C) (Interval estimates and hypothesis testing for the Binomial will be covered in Ch. 8.) Mugglin and Eberly PubH 6450 Fall 2011 Part 11 2 / 21 Review Revisiting Important Concepts Extending the Ideas Behind Hypothesis Tests for Interpretations of a p-value The p-value gives the probability of X being far away from . Suppose we got a test statistic of t = 2 . 7 with df = 18 and p = 0 . 01. Incorrect: The probability that the null hypothesis is true is . 01. Incorrect: The probability of observing t = 2 . 7 when H is true is 0 . 01. Incorrect: The probability of observing such a large X due to chance is 0 . 01. Correct: The probability of observing a test statistic with a value as or more extreme than t = 2 . 7 when H is true is 0 . 01. Correct: The smaller the p-value, the stronger the evidence against H .

Then, reject H : = when the test statistic z = X- / n > z * or equivalently when p < . Is p < ? Is z > z * ?
