Scenario Three: A group of parents believes that the proportion of students who find their college experience extremely rewarding does not equal 50%. They decide to test this hypothesis using a significance level of .05. They conduct a random sample of 100 students and 34 say they find their college experience extremely rewarding. You only need to redo the steps below to receive full credit for scenario three.
Based on the type of test this is (right, left, or two-tailed); determine the following for this problem.
4. Critical Value(s): _______________________
5. P-value Table A.3 _______________________ P-value Calculator:________________
P-value Table A.2 _______________
6: Can you reject? _______________________
7. Conclusion: Can we conclude or can we not conclude that the proportion of students who find their college experience extremely rewarding does not equal 50%?
Continue with Scenario Three with a significance level of .001. The test condition is still “does not equal 50%.”
8.a Critical Values for two-tailed test with α = .001: _____________________
8.b Conclusion: Can we conclude with a significance level of .001 that the proportion of students who find their college experience extremely rewarding does not equal 50%?
Data:
n = 100
p = 0.5
p' = 0.34
Hypotheses:
Ho: p = 0.5
Ha: p ≠ 0.5
Decision Rule:
α = 0.05
Lower Critical z- score = -1.9600
Upper Critical z- score = 1.9600
Reject Ho if |z| > 1.9600
Test Statistic:
SE = √{p (1 - p)/n} = √(0.5 * (1 - 0.5)/100) = 0.0500
z = (p'- p)/SE = (0.34 - 0.5)/0.05 = -3.2000
p- value = 0.0014
Decision (in terms of the hypotheses):
Since 3.2000 > 1.9600 we reject Ho and accept Ha
Conclusion (in terms of the problem):
There is sufficient evidence that the proportion is not 50%
ANSWERS:
4. Critical Value(s): = ± 1.96
5. P-value = 0.0014
6: Can you reject? Yes
7. Conclusion: We can conclude that the proportion of students who find their college experience extremely rewarding does not equal 50%
8.a Critical Values for two-tailed test with α = .001: = ± 3.2905
8.b Conclusion: We can't conclude with a significance level of .001 that the proportion of students who find their college experience extremely rewarding does not equal 50%.

A presidential candidate's alde estimates that, among all college students, the proportion p who intend to vote in the upcoming election is at least 60%. IF 114 out of a random sample of 220 college students expressed an intent to vote, can we reject the aide's estimate at the 0.05 level of significance? Perform a one-tailed test.
