Fundamentals of Hypothesis Testing

2.3 CEUs


IISE and MoreSteam are pleased to present this online course.

This course introduces the fundamentals of hypothesis testing: what it is, when and how to conduct it, and how to interpret results. There are lessons on a wide variety of specific hypothesis tests that offer hands-on experience running each test on sets of practice data. At the end of the course, learners engage in a courtroom-style hypothesis testing simulation. Across four different court cases, there are opportunities to further practice selecting the correct hypothesis test, running the test, and interpreting the results. Upon completion of this course, learners will be able to confidently apply statistical methods to scientific inquiries, enabling them to make more data-driven decisions.

What You Will Learn:

After completing this course, you should be able to DO the following:

  • Formulate a hypothesis statement.
  • Distinguish between statistical and practical significance.
  • Differentiate between null and alternative hypotheses.
  • Determine the appropriate sample size and significance level for a hypothesis test.
  • Assign the correct type of error given the outcome of a test.
  • Use confidence intervals to evaluate if the result of the hypothesis is statistically significant.
  • Given a situation, determine the appropriate hypothesis test, perform the test, and correctly interpret the results.
  • Explain the difference between parametric and non-parametric hypothesis tests.
