population variance is
unknown.
Used when n<30

## teps in Hypothesis Testin

1. Formulate the two hypothesis: Ho
& HA
2. Select the level of significance &
tailed test: one-tailed test or twotailed test?
3. Determine the test statistic
4. Compute for the acceptance
region/value of statistic
5. Compute for the rejection region:
degree of freedom & critical value

## ingle Sample T-Test Example

For many semesters, Professor
Snape has recorded his students
grades are 83. His current class of 28
students seems to be better than
average in ability and she wants to
show that according to their average
the current class is superior than
the previous classes. Do the class
mean of 86.2 and standard deviation
of 12, present sufficient evidence to
support her claim that the current
class is superior? Use 5% level of

## The average family size in

the Philippines was reported
as 4.25. A random of families
in a particular street resulted
in the following family sizes:
5, 6, 7, 4, 3, 8, 2 and 9. At
0.10 significance level, does
the average family size more
than the national average?

whether to pursue a Masters Degree
or not. He will only do so if he is
convinced that Masters degree

## Dependent Sample T-Test Example

The following data are the score of
the students in the pre-test and posttest in statistics. Can we say that the
students understand most of the
topics in statistics at 5% level of
significance?
Observations
Pre-test 6 7 5 5 4 9 2 2 3 6
Post-test 9 11 8 5 6 3 7 9 10 9

## Dependent Sample T-Test Example

It is of interest to compare the scores
of 10 players in archery. Thus, at 5%
level of significance, we can say that
there is a positive difference
between the scores of the students
between post-test and pre-test in
