-requirements for p-test: 1) simple random sample, 2) conditions for a binomial distribution are satisfied, and 3) np5 and nq5 are satisfied -methods: 1) p-value, 2) traditional, 3) confidence interval; use same methods as sec 8.2; use the standard n
-the test statistic is a value used in making a decision about the null hypotheses, and is found by converting the sample statistic to a score with the assumption that the null hypothesis is true -the critical region/rejection region is the set of al
