Upon successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:

  • estimate intervals over which the population parameter could exist;

  • identify when to use the z and t distributions, and use these distributions to find probabilities;
  • test hypotheses of the population mean and population proportion using one or two samples;
  • define and apply the significance level, and explain its importance to hypothesis testing; and
  • define and determine a region of acceptance based on a test statistic.
