3. Pick the option that correctly completes the statement.

Consider a well-designed experiment involving a group of volunteers.

9. Pick the option that correctly completes the statement.

For a Chi-square test for independence, there will be evidence against the null hypothesis if there

10. Pick the option that correctly completes the statement.

The sign (+ or -) of the sample correlation coefficient, r, is:

For highly skewed data the sample median is a more sensible measure of the centre than the

sample mean.

12. Decide whether this statement is True or False.

An observational study can be used to reliably establish the cause of an effect.

13. Decide whether this statement is True or False.

Under chance alone, when comparing two groups, the difference we observe would purely and

simply be due to which units just happened to have ended up in which group and nothing else.

14. Decide whether this statement is True or False.

Taking larger samples will not reduce the effects of selection bias and other nonsampling errors.

15. Decide whether this statement is True or False.

We can be certain that the true value of a population parameter is somewhere in a bootstrap

confidence interval for that parameter.

16. Decide whether this statement is True or False.

The level of confidence is the long-run success rate for a method which aims at producing

confidence intervals which contain the unknown value of the parameter.

17. Decide whether this statement is True or False.

Statistical significance implies practical significance.

18. Decide whether this statement is True or False.

If the P-value for an F-test for one-way analysis of variance is large then the differences we see

between the sample means could be due to chance alone.

19. Decide whether this statement is True or False.

The greater the value of the Chi-square test statistic, the weaker the evidence against the null

hypothesis.

20. Decide whether this statement is True or False.

The correlation coefficient measures the strength and the direction of a linear relationship between

two numeric variables.

2 Block 2: Questions 21 to 24

These questions are worth two marks each.

Questions 21 to 24 refer to the information in Appendix A.

21. Which one of the following statements about the study is false?

22. Refer to Figure 2.

Which one of the following statements could be false?

23. Refer to Figure 3.

Which one of the following statements is false?

This study is an experiment because the participants were randomly allocated to either the

TimeRestriction group or the NoTimeRestriction group.

The response variable was ReportedNumber.

The researchers were blinded because they did not know what number the participants

actually rolled.

The NoTimeRestriction group was the control group.

This study had a completely randomised design.

There were more participants in the NoTimeRestriction group who actually rolled a 1 than

participants in the TimeRestriction group who actually rolled a 1.

The standard deviation of the ReportedNumber for the NoTimeRestriction group is higher

than that of the TimeRestriction group.

The median ReportedNumber for the NoTimeRestriction group is less than that of the

TimeRestriction group.

Numbers less than 3 were reported less often by participants in theTimeRestriction group

than were reported by those in the NoTimeRestriction group.

Participants in the TimeRestriction group tended to report a higher number than participants

in the NoTimeRestriction group reported.

24. Suppose that the researchers were also interested in seeing if the underlying mean time taken

to report their number by those in the NoTimeRestriction group was different to the underlying

mean time taken to report their number by those in the TimeRestriction group.

Let be the difference between the underlying mean time taken to report their number

by those in the NoTimeRestriction group and the underlying mean time taken to report their

number by those in the TimeRestriction group.

Which one the following are a correct pair of hypotheses for this test?

We have evidence that the time restriction caused the participants in the

TimeRestriction group to roll higher numbers.

The P-value for this randomisation test is less than 5%.

We have evidence that chance was not acting alone in the actual study.

We may claim that the time restriction had an effect on the mean ReportedNumber.

We have evidence that Group together with chance produced the observed result.

3 BLOCK 3: Questions 25 to 30

These questions are worth two marks each.

Questions 25 to 30 refer to the information in Appendix B.

25. Which one of the following could not be present in the data collected?

Questions 26 and 27 refer to Figure 4 and the accompanying information.

26. Which one of the following statements is false?

27. Suppose that it was decided to use t-procedures to calculate a 95% confidence interval for the

difference between the proportion of those interested in politics who said that they had voted and

the proportion of those not interested in politics who said that they had voted.

The sampling situation for calculating the standard error of the estimate is:

Nonresponse bias

Interviewer effects

Question effects

Behavioural considerations

Sampling error

The bootstrap confidence interval includes the difference in the sample proportions.

The smallest sample proportion is the proportion of those not interested in politics who said

that they did not vote.

It's a fairly safe bet that the proportion of those interested in politics who said that they had

voted is somewhere between 11 and 19 percentage points higher than the proportion of

those not interested in politics who said that they had voted.

The majority of respondents said that they had voted.

In every resample the difference in percentage points was more than five.

Which one of the following statements is false?

one sample of size 3207, several response categories.

one sample of size 3412, several response categories.

two independent samples of sizes 3207 and 205.
