When applying statistical tests involving comparing two means or a sample to a population mean, there are many organizational applications. For example, Human Resources may want to track entrance exam scores of their new hires. This would be an example of two mean comparison. In terms of the recent election, Gallup may take a sample and compare to a population of candidate votes (sample mean compared to a population mean).

Think of an example in your organization of either one of these tests and discuss its application as well as the risk of type 1 or 2 errors.

What is the major advantage to constructing a paired difference
experiment when comparing two population means?
a) The paired difference experiment accounts for dependence
between data pairs.
b) The paired difference experiment benefits from the fact that
selecting samples independently is always optimal
c) The test statistic is easier to calculate
d)The paired difference experiment guarantees a strong linear
correlation

Comparing Two Population Means with Known Standard
Deviations
In this problem you do know the population standard deviation of
these independent normally distributed populations
The mean for the first set ¯xx¯ 1 = 15.49 with a
standard deviation of σσ 1 = 2.5 There sample size was
13.
The mean for the first set
¯xx¯ 2 = 15.796 with a standard
deviation of σσ 2 = 1.4 There sample size was 18.
Find the test statistic z= Round to 4
places.
Find the...

Compute the confidence interval for the difference of two
population means. Show your work.
Sample Mean 1= 17
Population standard deviation 1= 15
n1= 144
Sample Mean 2= 26
Population Standard Deviation 2= 13
n2 = 121
Confidence Level= 99

Question 1
Tests comparing 2 population means can be:
surveys
experiments
both surveys and experiments
Question 2
If all the experimental units are identical (ex: clones), you
will set up the study as:
CRD
Block Design
Question 3
a 2 sample t-test still has which normality assumption(s)?
The population is normal or n is greater than 30
both populations are normal or both sample sizes are greater
than 30
Question 4
When you block by some variable in a block...

Comparing two population means and not knowing the population
standard deviation I would use which distribution?
A.
Two Sample Z statistic, equation 11-2
B.
Two Sample t statistic, equation 11-4, assuming equal
variances
C.
Two Sample t statistic, equation 11-5, assuming unequal
variances
D.
either B or C

How are paired t-tests different from two-sample t-tests?
1. When are they used: population parameters
2. Data types they are used on
3. Which sample statistics are used as estimates for the
population parameter
4. Test statistics, including conditions and Minitab command

The distribution of sample means has the same mean as the
underlying population, but the standard deviation differs. Use a
real world scenario to explain why it makes sense the variation
decreases as the sample size increases.

We have learned hypothesis tests
for the mean (when population variance is known and when it is
unknown)
for a percentage
to see if the means of two sets of data are the same
goodness of fit test
test for independence
For each type give a brief example. You do not have to solve the
problem you give. Try to come up with a problem on your own
