You can choose to assess your understanding of the hypothesis testing in one of several ways.

Definitions

There are 30 definitions here. Some of the terms may have more than one definition.

These Flash animations all use the same set of data, the choice is up to you to see which learning method you would like to use.

• Flash Cards - You are shown a definition. Give the term being defined and then flip the card over to see if you were right.
• Pick a Letter - Similar to the game of hangman. You are given a definition and you supply the letters to fill in the term being defined.
• Fill in the Blank - There are no clues given here, you just type in the term being defined. You can get hints, but your score decreases for each hint.
• Glossary - This is just a review of the terms like you would see at the end of a book.

Multiple Choice Problems

There are 60 questions here that deal with identifying the claim, classical hypothesis testing, wording the conclusions, confidence intervals for making decisions, construction and deconstruction of confidence intervals, probability values for making decisions, identifying the tail of the test, deciding which is the null and alternative hypotheses, and identifying the type of error.

Part 1

Part 1 consists of questions dealing with classical hypothesis testing, decisions based on confidence intervals, determining the tail of the test, deciding whether an English statement is the null or alternative hypothesis, and deciding what kind of test (1 proportion, 2 proportions, 1 mean, 2 independent means, or paired samples) is appropriate.

Part 2

Part 2 consists of questions dealing with the probability value approach, proper wording of the conclusion, determining whether an English statement is a type I or type II error, confidence intervals, and writing the original claim symbolically.
