STATS CH 10

If you have a population standard deviation of 20 and a sample size of 4, what is your standard error of the mean?

10

In a one-sample Z test, this number of groups is being compared:

1

If the obtained value is higher than the critical value, we ______________________.

Reject the null hypothesis

The standard error of the mean is the best estimate that we can come up with given that it is impossible to compute _______________________.

All possible means

After conducting a one-sample Z test, you arrived at a value of 5.7 for the z value. What is your conclusion?

Reject the null hypothesis

This is the error term used as the denominator in the equation for the z value in a one-sample Z test.

Standard error of the mean

If the obtained value is not higher than the critical value, we _____________________.

Accept the null hypothesis
..

The numerator of the equation for the z value is:

The population average subtracted from the mean of the sample.

The standard error of the mean is calculated as:

The population standard deviation divided by the square root of the size of the sample.
