Hypothesis Testing

In the last chapter of this course, we will dive into Hypothesis Testing, a fundamental statistical tool used to determine the significance of results obtained from a data set.

We'll focus on conducting t-tests and z-tests, which are commonly used to compare sample means to a known value or another sample mean under specific assumptions.

Hypothesis Testing is crucial for validating the findings in research, business analytics, and many scientific disciplines, helping to make informed decisions based on statistical evidence.

Your assignment is to use Excel to conduct statistical tests on the provided datasets. Perform both T-tests and Z-tests to compare sample means and evaluate hypotheses.

Below are the datasets for user groups to use for the T-test and Z-test:

For t-test:

• Navigate to the Data tab and click on Data Analysis. If this option is not available, activate it via Excel Options by adding it from the Add-ins.
• Select t-Test: Two-Sample Assuming Equal Variances from the Data Analysis options.
• For the t-test, use the data from T-Test Group 1 and T-Test Group 2.
• Input the hypothesized mean difference (set it to 0, indicating no expected difference under the null hypothesis).
• Ensure labels are included. Set the alpha value at 0.05.
• Execute the test and review the output. A p-value less than 0.05 typically indicates statistical significance, suggesting you reject the null hypothesis.

For z-test:

• Navigate to the Data tab and click on Data Analysis. If this option is not available, activate it via Excel Options by adding it from the Add-ins.
• For the z-test, suitable for larger sample sizes, use the z-Test: Two Sample for Means option.
• Use the data from Z-Test Group 1 and Z-Test Group 2.
• Input the hypothesized mean difference (set it to 0, indicating no expected difference under the null hypothesis).
• Since the population standard deviations are known, input 100 for the variances of both groups.
• Ensure labels are included. Set the alpha value at 0.05.
• Execute the test and review the output. A p-value less than 0.05 typically indicates statistical significance, suggesting you reject the null hypothesis.
1. For the z-test, if the p-value is significantly low (less than 0.05), what conclusions can you draw about the population means of the two groups?
2. What was the p-value for the one-tailed t-test, and what does it imply about the difference between Group 1 and Group 2?

For the z-test, if the p-value is significantly low (less than 0.05), what conclusions can you draw about the population means of the two groups?
