Statistical Applets: The Reasoning of a Statistical Test

Statistical Applets: The Reasoning of a Statistical Test

Created by authors Duckworth, McCabe, Moore and Sclove for W.H. Freeman and Co., this statistical demo is designed to help students master "The Reasoning of a Statistical Test" covered in the "Practice of Business Statistics." This site was intended to accompany this textbook, but the text is not necessary for its use. The applet itself presents a basketball player shooting free throws. The player takes twenty-five shots and then this data is analyzed versus its null hypothesis. This is an excellent example of hypothesis testing in a format that students can easily comprehend.
