Final I: Study Guide


  1. Properties of the Standard Normal distribution.
  2. Properties of the Student's T distribution.
  3. Properties of the Chi-Square distribution.
  4. Properties of the F distribution.
  5. Properties of the Binomial distribution.
  6. Properties of the Sampling distribution of the sample means
  7. Statistics which are affected by extreme values.
  8. Statistics which include all data values.
  9. Five number summary.
  10. Assumptions of Chi-Square Goodness of Fit test.
  11. Assumptions of Chi-Square test for independence.
  12. Assumptions of One-way ANOVA.
  13. Assumptions of Two-way ANOVA.
  14. Possible relationships when there's significant linear correlation.
  15. Properties of the linear correlation coefficient.
  16. Requirements for having a Binomial experiment.
  17. Know the statistician and which statistic he worked with. Concentrate on Chebyshev, Mendel, Gossett, and Pearson.
  18. Properties of probability distributions.
  19. Identify independent events.
  20. Identify independent samples.
  21. Write the null and alternative hypotheses for each of five statements. Some of these will require that you define your subscripts. Also, if there is a dependent sample case, be sure to define which way you're subtracting the values.
  22. For a probability distribution, find the mean, variance, and standard deviation.
  23. Find three probabilities from the Standard Normal table. Also, find the Z-score given the probability for one part.
  24. Identify the type of sampling used as cluster, convenience, random, stratified, or systematic (four parts).
  25. Identify the best term defined. Thirteen parts. Most of these are related to something in the Glossary of Symbols located on the inside back cover. Study the definitions from the previous study guides.


Several of the problems say "properties" or "assumptions". Some of the properties include assumptions, and some of the assumptions include properties.

Problems 1 through 20 are multiple choice with 4 parts each.

One question which certainly could be asked for each of the first six problems is what the mean of that distribution is.

Problems 1 - 20 are 0.75 points per part (60 points).
Problems 21 - 23 are two points per part (24 points).
Problems 24 - 25 are one point per part (17 points).
