Final Practical Exam
Adjust, Run, & Interpret
In the Module 8, Final Practical Exam: Part I assignment, you examined data, constructed a hypothesis, and identified the tests needed to evaluate your hypothesis. In this Part II assignment, you will run the appropriate test and interpret the results. Remember that the Final Practical Exam is worth 15% of your final grade.
To get started, use the feedback you received from your instructor to make any needed adjustments to your hypothesis statement, test type, and alpha level. Then, run the appropriate t-test. Finally, interpret the results. Remember to review the Exam Related Resources section of the Module 8 – Readings & Resources page to see demonstrations on how to run statistical tests in Excel.
Submit a document in sentence format that includes the following.
State the hypothesis in a sentence (for example): The average body temperature of people in our class is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit.
Express that idea using scientific notation notation (For example: A one-sample test for temperature would read): Null Hypothesis – HO: µ = 98.6, Alternate Hypothesis – HA: µ ≠ 98.6
Appropriate t-test used to evaluate the hypothesis
Alpha (α) level
State in a sentence or two whether the hypothesis is rejected or if there is not enough evidence to reject the null hypotheses and what the results mean.
Also, submit the Excel file used to run your tests.
