    7. How many degrees of freedom does it have?
    8. What type of distribution do the ordered pairs (x,y) have?
  2. Know the assumptions / properties of the contingency tables.
    1. What is the null hypothesis?
    2. How are the sample data selected?
    3. What requirement must be met?
    4. What type of data is used?
    5. What type of distribution does it have?
    6. How many degrees of freedom does it have?
    7. What type of test is it?
  3. Know the assumptions / properties of multinomial experiments.
    1. What is the null hypothesis?
    2. What requirement must be met?
    3. What is the sample data?
    4. What distribution does it have?
    5. How many degrees of freedom does it have?
    6. What type of test is it?
  4. Know the guidelines for using the regression equation.
    1. Know the guidelines for using a regression equation from page 501.
    2. What is the equation that should be used if there is no significant linear correlation (pg 500)?
  5. Know the properties of multiple regression.
    1. When does the largest value of R-square occur?
    2. When does the largest value of the adjusted R-square occur?
    3. How is the Analysis of Variance used to test the regression equation?
    4. How does correlation between independent variables affect the choice of variables?
    5. What tools can be used to perform multiple regression.
    6. What are the degrees of freedom?
  6. Contingency Table. Use Statdisk. Write the null hypotheses. Find one (not all of them) expected frequency. Identify the degrees of freedom. Find the p-value. Write the decision and conclusion.
  7. A statistical test that you have never seen and a p-value is given. Give the conclusion.
  8. Know what happens to the test statistic of a contingency table when the data is manipulated. Three parts.
  9. Know what happens to the test statistic of a multinomial experiment when the data is manipulated. Two parts.
  10. Know what happens to the linear correlation coefficient when the data is manipulated. Three parts.
  11. Work a chi-square goodness of fit problem using Statdisk. The observed frequencies are given to you. Give the degrees of freedom, critical value, test statistic, p-value, decision, and conclusion.
  12. The value of the correlation coefficient, r, and the total variation are given. Find the coefficient of determination, explained variation, and unexplained variation.
  13. Linear regression problem. The sample size, correlation coefficient, means, and regression equation are given to you. Write the null hypothesis, look up the critical values, make a decision, make an estimation, give the value of the coefficient of determination, determine whether the data is normally distributed by looking at a normal probability plot.
  14. Work a linear regression problem using Statdisk. The raw data is given to you. Give the linear correlation coefficient, critical values, conclusion, regression equation from Statdisk, mean of y, and predict y for a given value of x.
  15. Use SPSS to create a correlation matrix (Analyze / Correlation / Bivariate). Indicate the variables that are correlated to the specified variable. Perform multiple regression and record the coefficients and p-values for each independent variable. Also record the r-square and adjusted r-square value. Determine which two variables are least significant by looking at the p-values and re-perform the multiple regression without those variables. Did the adjusted r-square increase or decrease by eliminating the variable? Determine whether a variable is normally distributed by performing a Kolmogorov Smirnov normality test.
