7 2 hypothesis testing for the mean large samples

7.2 Hypothesis Testing for the Mean (Large Samples)

  • Key Concepts:

    • Hypothesis Testing (P-value Approach)

    • Critical Values and Rejection Regions

    • Hypothesis Testing (Critical-Value Approach)

7.2 Hypothesis Testing for the Mean (Large Samples)

  • So how do we calculate the P-value of a test?

    • Recall: The P-value of a hypothesis test is the probability of obtaining a sample statistic with a value as extreme as or more extreme thanthe one determined from the sample data.

      • When we test for one population mean, we use the standardized version of the sample mean as our sample (or test) statistic.

    • Practice finding P-values:

      #2 p. 389 (left-tailed test)

      #6 (two-tailed test)

7.2 Hypothesis Testing for the Mean (Large Samples)

  • We are finally ready to conduct a hypothesis test for the mean using P-values! Guidelines are provided on page 381 (Using P-Values for a z-Test for the Mean µ).

7.2 Hypothesis Testing for the Mean (Large Samples)

  • If the P-value of a test is difficult to calculate, we can use what’s known as the critical-value approach.

    • A rejection region of the sampling distribution is the range of values for which the null hypothesis is not probable.

    • A critical value separates the rejection region from the nonrejection region.

      • Practice finding critical values and rejection regions

7.2 Hypothesis Testing for the Mean (Large Samples)

  • How do we decide whether or not to reject the null hypothesis when we’re working with critical values and rejection regions?

    • If our test statistic falls within the rejection region, we reject Ho. Otherwise, we do not reject Ho.

  • Guidelines are provided on page 386 (Using Rejection Regions for a z-Test for µ).
