Research Question : Is there enough statistical evidence to suggest that the Minneapolis Public School District is doing worse than the 25% benchmark for urban schools? a. Setup a simulation study in Tinkerplots to answer this question. Run your simulation 1000 times. Paste a copy of your final graph on this quiz (or print it off and turn it in with your quiz). History of Results of Sampler 1 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 6 7 15 28 39 62 61 79 75 106 80 102 71 76 53 44 25 26 19 6 9 3 3 0 3 0 0 count_Attr1_Make_AYP Circle Icon b. Compute the appropriate p-value for this problem. (2 pt) The appropriate p-value for these 1000 trials is (15+7+6+1+1)/1000 = 30/1000 = .03 = 3%. I found this by adding all of the numbers of trials that had 14 or less schools making AYP then dividing by the amount of trials, which was 1000. c. Answer the research question using the outcomes from your simulation study. Explain. (3 pts) Yes. The p-value for my 1000 trials (.03 or 3%) is less than the appropriate estimated p-value of .05 or 5%. Because the p-value is less than .05, statisticians would say that there is enough statistical evidence to support the claim that the Minneapolis Public School District is underperforming.
