Unit 3 Discussion: Hypothesis Tests The StatTalk videos that we are working with for this unit are Basketball Players Wonât Accept the Null Hypothesis and The Fish and Chips Guy Wonât Accept the Null Hypothesis. Do the Unit 3 Discussion Questions in MyStatLab. For the Discussion activity, you will be doing a Letter Frequency Analysis and conducting a Goodness of Fit Test comparing your letter probability distribution to a study conducted by Cornell University in 2004. You will choose a passage from a book, poem, or other written work. The work must have at least 150 words. Your passage must be in English and display overall correct grammar (i.e. no weird songs). Each class will be a letter. i.e there will be 26 classes: A-Z. Create a frequency table containing the class (letter) and itâs frequency in the passage. (Make sure to note the total number of letters by adding up the frequency column. This is your sample size n.) We are testing the hypotheses:: The population fits the given distribution (from the Cornell study) : The population has a different distribution Compute the sample test statistic Ï2. Download the Excel file in the Unit 3 Lesson Module: Unit 3 Discussion: Cornell Letter Frequency Study (Note that the letters are not in alphabetical order). Use the relative frequency for each letter as the probability of getting that letter. Calculate the expected frequencies E of each letter using YOUR SAMPLE SIZE n. (For example E for A is E = 0.0812384*n, where is the total of the frequency column for YOUR PASSAGE!!!). You may use StatCrunch to find Ï2 or build a computation table in Excel. What is the degree of freedom? We will use the level of significance to conclude the test. You may either use the P-value approach or the Critical value approach. Interpret your results in context. If you rejected H0, what does that mean? If you did not reject H0, what does that mean? Analyze the results of your hypothesis test.
