Assume we know that σX = $146.64. Let’s test a true null hypothesis. true 1) Hypothesis – Null and Alternative. 2) Choose α = 0.10 3) Critical Value(s): Standardized Standardized Test: Turn the sampling distribution into a z. 3 4) Estimate: Calculate your sample mean, sample standard deviation, and test statistic: zcalc = σX X − μ0 n PRS 2: Calculate your z-score for this test. your Round to 2 decimal places – report that value. decimal 5) 5) Compare: Where does your test statistic fall? zcalc vs. zα/2 6) Conclusion: Example: Example: Hypothesis Test Start to Finish.
