# Hypothesis testing 5 step approach

Factual questions (1 point each-10 points) No lengthy answers

1. Suppose that on a 100 item multiple choice test almost all students scored

between 95 and 100 but a small scattering number of participants scored as

low as 20.When plotted as a curve, the distribution will show what type of a

curve?

2. If all participants in a group have the same score, what is the value of the

standard deviation of the scores?

3. If a difference between two variables is declared to be statistically

significant, what decision is being made about the Ho?

4. The researcher commits what type of an error when she/he fails to reject

the Ho which incorrectly states that there is no difference between the

population means?

THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS ARE BASED ON THE TABLES

BELOW (I &5 &VI). REFER TO SPECIFIC TABLE WHEN YOU

ANSWER THE QUESTIONS.

Answers should be appropriate for the points

Question for Table 1

1 (a) what values for 'preferences' are listed for each measurement tool?

Name each one

(b) Are the differences in 'preference' values statistically significant?

(c) What statistical test is used to test the data?

(d) What level of significance is used?

Question for Table 5 (10 points).

2. (a) what is the value of the Pearson' r' for the relationship between

'quadriceps strength' and the 'side step test? Explain clearly to justify your

answer.

(b) I s the 'r' value significant? Provide a rationale for your answer

Questions for Table VI

3. (a) How many groups were in the samples? and what are the groups

(b) What t' ratio listed in the table had the largest 'p' value?

(c) What does the result (answer to b) indicate?

(d) Are the results statistically significant? Provide a rationale for your

answer

(e) Is this an parametric statistic or non parametric statistic?

Explain the difference between two
