 Effect Size it estimates the deg to which the null hypothesis is false compared to the alternative null. related to Power, in that if ES is High then power is as well. Test Statistic is a special value computed from a sample that is used in deciding btwn the Ho and H1. A z-score. A P value is the smallest alpha that would allow rejection of the null. (p <.05) Parametric Test The null hypothesis is about a specific population parameter. Nonparametric test When the hypothesis specify shape of the population Null Hypothesis 1. no change of difference2. proposes a specific value for the parameter3. helps to construct the sampling distribution Rejection Region Values specified by the decision rule. often set by alpha, alpha-.05 directional- CV-1.64 the rejection is anything after this value. Significance level is represented by alpha. Critical Value is also called a Z score and is the value of the test statistic that begins the rejection region. Type I error = alpha Occurs when the Null is rejected when it really is correct. always equals the alpha, so if alpha is .05, you have a 5% chance that your making a Type I error. Type II error Is made when the null is not rejected when it really is incorrect. ( beta ) related to power! 1 Step in Hypothesis Testing 1.
