Objectives for the Second Test (Chapters 7-12) Chapter 7 1. Students should be able to define the distribution of sample means and, for a specific sampling situation, describe the distribution by identifying its shape, the expected value of M, and the standard error of M. 2. Students should understand that each sample mean, M, has a location in the distribution of sample means that can be described by a z-score equal to M μ z = ───── where σ M is the standard error of M σ M 3. Using the distribution of sample means, z-scores, and the unit normal table, students should be able to determine probabilities corresponding to specific sample means. Chapter 8 1. Students should understand the logic of hypothesis testing. 2. Students should be able to state the hypotheses and locate the critical region. 3. Students should be able to conduct a hypothesis test using a z-score statistic and make a statistical decision.
