Statistics - Lecture 55: Effect Size

The effect size is a measure of the strength of an effect.
After running a statistical analysis, if you reject the null hypothesis it then makes sense to calculate the effect size to determine the strength of the effect.

Statistics - Lecture 56: Power

Power is the probability of correctly rejecting the null hypothesis.
Beta is the probability of incorrectly rejecting the null hypothesis.

Statistics - Lecture 57: Statistical Vs. Practical Significance

To reject the null hypothesis is to say that you have found Statistical Significance.

Statistics - Lecture 58: Independent And Dependent Samples

One-Sample Methods:

  • One sample z-test
  • One sample z-test for Proportions
  • One sample t-test In these tests, one sample was being compared to the population.

Two-Sample Methods:

  • Samples are compared to other samples. Samples are independent if members of one sample are unrelated to members of the other sample.
    Samples are dependent if the members are related.
