Discussion 1-1/Language

Numbers and measurements are the language of business. Organizations look at results in many ways: expenses, quality levels, efficiencies, time, costs, etc. What measures does your department keep track of? Are they descriptive or inferential data, and what is the difference between these?

BUS 308 Week 1 DQ 2 Probability

www.bus308mentor.com

Things vary in life – virtually nothing (except physical standards such as the speed of light) we interact with is constant over time. Much of this variation follows somewhat predictable patterns that can be examined using probability. An example of a subjective probability is: “Cops usually do not patrol this road, so I can get away with speeding.” An empirical probability example is: “Each production run has a 5% reject rate.”

1. For assistance with these calculations, see the Recommended Resources for Week One. Measurement issues. Data, even numerically code variables, can be one of 4 levels – nominal, ordinal, interval, or ratio. It is important to identify which level a variable is, as this impacts the kind of analysis we can do with the data.

Discussion 2-1/Hypotheses

What is a hypothesis test? Why do we need to use them to make decisions about relating sample results to the population; why can’t we just make our decisions by the sample value?

Variation exists in virtually all parts of our lives. We often see variation in results in what we spend (utility costs each month, food costs, business supplies, etc.). Consider the measures and data you use (in either your personal or job activities). When are differences (between one time period and another, between different production lines, etc.) b

In many ways, comparing multiple sample means is simply an extension of what we covered last week. Just as we had 3 versions of the t-test (1 sample, 2 sample (with and without equal variance), and paired; we have several versions of ANOVA – single factor, factorial (called 2-factor with replication in Excel), and within-subjects (2-factor without replication in Excel). What examples (professional, personal, social) can you provide on when we might use each type?What would be the appropriate hypotheses statements for each example?

1. Question : The goodness of fit test null hypothesis states that the sample data does not match an expected distribution.

Question 2. Question : Statistical significance in the Chi-square test means the population distribution (expected) is not the source of the sample (observed) data.

Question 3. Question : While rejecting the null hypothesis for the goodness of fit test means distributions differ, rejecting the null for the test of independence means the variables interact

Question 4. Question : The null hypothesis for the test of independence states that no correlation exists between the variables.

At times we can generate a regression equation to explain outcomes. For example, an employee’s salary can often be explained by their pay grade, appraisal rating, education level, etc. What variables might explain or predict an outcome in your department or life? If you generated a regression equation, how would you interpret it and the residuals from it?
