ETHICAL BEHAVIOR OF STUDENTS AT BAYVIEW UNIVERSITY3 the 47 students that admitted to cheating, 27 were male and 20 were female. Information aboutthe survey is broken down further and analyzed the in following sections.College of Business at Bayview University to National Business Students The Chronicle of Higher Education reported that 58 percent of business studentsadmitted to some form of cheating. I did a hypothesis test to see if the population proportion ofbusiness students at Bayview who admitted to some form of cheating is more or less thanbusiness students at other universities, I am looking for evidence that p, the populationproportion, is different than 0.58. H0: = .58μHA: μ.58= .05αZ = 1.96I will reject H0 if it is greater than ± 1.96zcalc= (p–)/sπp-bar________sp-bar= *(1– )/n√ππ_______________= 0.58*(1 - 0.58)/110 = 0.047zcalc= (47/110 - 0.58)/0.047 = -3.25Since the p-value = .0047 .05 I reject 0Hand since zcalc -3.25 is in the lower tail I canconclude that the ethical behavior of students in college of business at Bayview University isbetter than for business schools at other universities.
ETHICAL BEHAVIOR OF STUDENTS AT BAYVIEW UNIVERSITY4 College of Business at Bayview University to National Non Business Students The Chronicle of Higher Education reported that 45 percent of non-business students admitted to some form of cheating. I did a hypothesis test to see if the population proportion of business students at Bayview who admitted to some form of cheating is more or less than national non-business students, I am looking for evidence that p, the population proportion, is different than 0.45. H0: = 0.45μHA: μ0.45= .05αZ = 1.96I will reject H0 if it is greater than ± 1.96zcalc= (p–)/sπp-bar________sp-bar= *(1– )/n√ππ_______________sp-bar= 0.45*(1 - 0.45)/110 = 0.047zcalc= (47/110 - 0.45)/0.047 = -0.484Since zcalcis < 1.96, therefore do not reject H0and conclude that there is no evidence tosuggest that the ethical behavior of students in college of business at Bayview University isbetter than for national non-business students.Confidence Interval ProportionI have calculated the standard error of the proportion by using the sample proportion. Ihave used the following formula to calculate different confidence intervals________p ± z (p(1-p))/nCheaters
