How did you determine this value? (2 pt) If Rochester is going to have the same proportion, I would expect there to be about 17 schools making AYP. I determined this by multiplying 35 (the number of schools in the Rochester district) by .49 (the percentage we’re comparing Rochester’s to). c. Consider the following outcomes from 1000 simulations from Tinkerplots.

The appropriate probability value (or p-value) from these 1000 simulations for our research  question is the number of outcomes less than or equal to 15 out of 1000, which is  (100+96+61+24+16+4) / 1000 = 301 / 1000 = 0.301.  Does this p-value provide enough  statistical evidence to support our research question?  Explain. (3 pts) No, the acceptable p-value is less than .05 or 5%. .301 or 30% is too high for the statistical evidence to be seen as supported. 4. There are a lot of different demographic variables that influence whether or not a school can achieve the standard of Making AYP. For example, a school with a disproportionate number of students on a free/reduced lunch program tends to have more trouble making AYP. For reasons such as this, suppose that the proportion of urban schools that typically make AYP status in any given year is about 25%.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
