© 2001 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 9-8 Critical Values Approach to Testing Convert Sample Statistic (e.g. ) to Test Statistic (e.g. Z, t or F –statistic) Obtain Critical Value(s) for a Specified from a Table or Computer If the test statistic falls in the critical region, reject H 0 Otherwise do not reject H 0

© 2001 Prentice-Hall, Inc. Chap 9-9 p-Value Approach to Testing Convert Sample Statistic (e.g. ) to Test Statistic (e.g. Z, t or F –statistic) Obtain the p-value from a table or computer p-value: Probability of obtaining a test statistic more extreme ( or ) than the observed sample value given H 0 is true Called observed level of significance Largest value of that an H 0 will not be rejected Compare the p-value with If p-value, do not reject H 0 If p-value, reject H 0
