• ### Log-likelihood ratio

This site offers an involved definition of the likelihood ratio test with examples and formulas.
• ### Likelihood Ratio Test

This site focuses on using the LRT to compare two competing models.
• ### Hypothesis Testing for a Proportion and Small Samples

This site explains small sample hypothesis testing for a normal population and hypothesis testing for a population proportion. Includes examples and exercises.
• ### The One-Sample t Test

This section on Common Statistical Tests uses an example on faculty publications to show users how to perform a one-sample t test. The discussion includes one-tailed and two-tailed tests.
• ### **Introduction to hypothesis testing -- The z-test

This exercise will help the user understand the logic and procedures of hypothesis testing. To make best use of this exercise, the user should know how to use a z table to find probabilities on a normal distribution, and how to calculate the standard error of a mean. Relevant review materials are available from the links provided. The user will need a copy of the hypothesis testing exercise (link is provided), a table for the standardized normal distribution (z), and a calculator. The user will be asked several questions and will be given feedback regarding their answers. Detailed solutions are provided, but users should try to answer the questions on their own before consulting the detailed solutions. The end of the tutorial contains some "thought" questions.
• ### Confidence Intervals & Hypothesis Testing

This site explains the relationship between hypothesis testing and confidence intervals.
• ### Interpreting Statistical p-values

This page discusses the understanding of and interpretation of p-values for those who read articles with statistical information.
• ### Significance Level

This resource briefly explains what a significance level is and how they are used in hypothesis testing. It also includes other links related to significance level such as "Type I error" and "significance test".
• ### Statistical Significance

This article may help the user understand the concept of statistical significance and the meaning of the numbers produced by The Survey System. This article is presented in two parts. The first part simplifies the concept of statistical significance as much as possible; so that non-technical readers can use the concept to help make decisions based on their data. The second part provides more technical readers with a fuller discussion of the exact meaning of statistical significance numbers.
• ### Stats: Sample Size Determination

This resource provides the user with a formula for obtaining sample sizes of a mean and proportion.
