If you have only the summary statistics, choose the Stats option and enter the summary statistics (sample mean and standard deviation and sample size). 6. Each process will also require you to input the value of the population mean specified in your null hypothesis— the m0 . 5. If you have only the summary statistics, choose the Stats option and enter the summary statistics (sample mean and standard deviation, and sample size) for each of your samples. 6. The line beginning with m1 allows you to select the form of the alternative hypothesis— use the arrow keys to move the cursor left and right to select the correct form of your alternative hypothesis. Press [ to select it. If you are using the pooled procedures, choose Yes; otherwise, select No. You may have to scroll down to see this line. Select Calculate and press [. The output screen repeats the form of the alternative hypothesis selected. The test statistic, t, and the p-value, p, are reported. The degrees of freedom for the test and the summary statistics are also displayed. Inferences for the Difference between Two Proportions 7. Note: If you get an error message, see the warning above for one-proportion procedures. To make a confidence interval for the difference between two proportions: 1. Press K and scroll to the TESTS menu. 2. Scroll down until you find the option 2 –PropZInt and select it. 3. Enter the number of successes (x1) and sample size (n1) for the first sample. (Again number, not proportion, of successes.) 4. Enter the number of successes (x2) and sample size (n2) for the second sample. 5. Determine your confidence level and select Calculate. Press [. The screen displays the confidence interval inside a set of parentheses and reports the two sample proportions and sample sizes. To do a hypothesis test on the difference between two proportions: 1. Write down your null and alternative hypotheses. 2. Press K and scroll to the TESTS menu. 3. Scroll down until you find the option 2 – PropZTest and select it. 4. Enter the number of successes (x1) and sample size (n1) for the first sample. (Again, the number not proportion of successes.) 5. Enter the number of successes (x2) and sample size (n2) for the second sample. 6. Look at your alternative hypothesis. In the row beginning with the symbol p1, use the arrow keys to move the cursor left or right to select the correct form of your alternative hypothesis. Press [ to select it. 7. Move the cursor over Calculate and press [. The output screen repeats the form of the alternative hypothesis selected. The test statistic, z, and the p-value, p, are given. The two sample proportions are calculated and reported, while the p-hat without a subscript is the pooled sample proportion. The sample sizes are also displayed, but you need to scroll down to see these. As before, you can also select the option Draw in the 2 –PropZTest. 4 The line beginning with m allows you to select the form of t...
