First assignment is In this worksheet, you will practice the steps of hypothesis testing for given scenarios. This worksheet will help you to prepare to conduct a hypothesis test for the course project.
Download the worksheet and the data file below, work on the problem set, and submit the assignment via Canvas as a single PDF file. You can write down your solutions on the worksheet or a blank document.
This worksheet requires JMP. Download and install JMP from Unity College Website: Mac or Windows. Refer to Opening JMP and Getting Started (video or one-page guide) in JMP Learning Library to start with JMP.
The grading criteria can be found on the worksheet.
Submit the assignment as a .doc, .docx, or .pdf to this assignment.
2nd assignment is a discussion post
In this discussion, you will practice writing down a hypothesis in words and using symbols and draw a conclusion based on the given results.
For the initial post, select one of the two scenarios, and then:
(1) state the null and alternative hypothesis using words,
(2) state the null and alternative hypothesis using symbols,
(3) select an appropriate test (one-sample t-test, one proportion z-test, two-samples t-test, paired d t-test, and two-proportions z-test) to be used,
(4) determine whether you should reject the null hypothesis or fail to reject the null hypothesis,
(5) state the conclusion in the context of the problem, and
Scenario 1:
Suppose that you make a field observation that American alligators (Alligator mississippiensis) are inactive and tend to move less during winter due to low temperature. You want to test this observation by hypothesis test. You deploy GPS tags on 10 randomly selected alligators. For each alligator, the difference in mean movement distance between two time periods (winter and rest of the year) are calculated. You chose to use the significance level 0.05 and the p-value is 0.001.
Scenario 2: Suppose that you want to test whether the percentage of males who regularly practice recycling is different from that of females. To address this question, you randomly select 100 male students and 100 female students from College U and ask whether they recycle regularly. You calculate the percentage of the sample who regularly recycle for males and females respectively and calculate the test statistic. You choose to use the significance level 0.05 and the p-value is 0.08
And last assignment is based on our course project. The topic can be anything thr writers choose it just has to be related to the species of Tigers bc thats my choice of animal
