Against All Odds: 20. Significance Tests

This free online video program "explains the basic reasoning behind tests of significance and the concept of null hypothesis. The program shows how a z-test is carried out when the hypothesis concerns the mean of a normal population with known standard deviation. These ideas are explored by determining whether a poem “fits Shakespeare as well as Shakespeare fits Shakespeare.” Court battles over discrimination in hiring provide additional illustration.
