front 1 statistical hypothesis | back 1 a conjecture about a population parameter |

front 2 null hypothesis | back 2 a statistical hypothesis that states that there is no difference between a parameter and a specific value |

front 3 alternative hypothesis | back 3 a statistical hypothesis that states the existence of a difference between a parameter and a specific value |

front 4 hypothesis testing | back 4 a decision making process for the population under study |

front 5 statistical test | back 5 uses the data obtained from a sample to make a decision about whether a null hypothesis should be rejected |

front 6 test value | back 6 the numerical value obtained from a statistical test |

front 7 type I error | back 7 occurs when you reject the null hypothesis when it is true |

front 8 type II error | back 8 occurs when you do not reject the null hypothesis when it is false |

front 9 level of significance | back 9 the maximum probability of committing a type I error |

front 10 probability of a type I error symbol | back 10 |

front 11 probability of a type II error symbol | back 11 |

front 12 critical value | back 12 separates the critical region from the noncritical region |

front 13 critical region | back 13 the range of values of the test value that indicates there is a significant different and the null hypothesis should be rejected |

front 14 noncritical region | back 14 the range of values of the test value that indicates that the difference was probably due to chance and that the null hypothesis should not be rejected |

front 15 one-tailed test | back 15 the null hypothesis should be rejected when the test value is in the critical region on one side of the mean |

front 16 two-tailed test | back 16 the null hypothesis should be rejected when the test value is in either of the 2 critical regions |

front 17 z-test | back 17 a statistical test for the mean of a population |

front 18 p-value | back 18 the probability of getting a sample statistic or a more extreme sample statistic in the direction of the alternative hypothesis when the null hypothesis is true |

front 19 t test | back 19 a statistical test for the mean of a population & is used when the population is normally or approximately normally distributed |
