http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2351
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2351"The researcher armed with a confidence interval, but deprived of the false respectability of statistical significance, must work harder to convince himself and others of the importance of his findings. This can only be good." is a quote by British statistician Michael W. Oakes. The quote is found in his 1986 book "Statistical Inference: a Commentary for the Social and Behavioural Sciences" published by John Wiley & Sons.Wed, 5 Jun 2013 10:58:54 -0400Confidence Interval Creation Applet

http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2327
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=2327Researchers and students alike often mistake any overlap among 95% confidence intervals to denote a statistically non-significant p value. However, confidence intervals can overlap and still correspond to a statistically significant p value for an independent sample t test. The confidence interval (CI) applet will help learners understand the relationship between confidence interval overlap and statistical significance.Sun, 1 Apr 2012 10:08:50 -0400Cartoon: Elevator in the Stat Building

Thu, 12 May 2005 04:12:39 -0400Star Library: What is the Shelf Life?
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=920
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=920The Food and Drug Administration requires pharmaceutical companies to establish a shelf life for all new drug products through a stability analysis. This is done to ensure the quality of the drug taken by an individual is within established levels. The purpose of this out-of-class project or in-class example is to determine the shelf life of a new drug. This is done through using simple linear regression models and correctly interpreting confidence and prediction intervals. An Excel spreadsheet and SAS program are given to help perform the analysis. Key words: prediction interval, confidence interval, stability Thu, 12 May 2005 03:13:46 -0400Against All Odds: 19. Confidence Intervals
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=617
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=617This free online video program "lays out the parts of the confidence interval and gives an example of how it is used to measure the accuracy of long-term mean blood pressure. An example from politics and population surveys shows how margin of error and confidence levels are interpreted. The program also explains the use of a formula to convert the z* values into values on the sampling distribution curve. Finally, the concepts are applied to an issue of animal ethics."

http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=893
http://www.causeweb.org/cwis/index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=893This article describes an interactive activity illustrating sampling distributions for means, properties of confidence intervals, properties of hypothesis testing, confidence intervals for means, and hypothesis tests for means. Students generate and analyze data and through simulation explore these concepts. The activity is completed in three parts. The three parts of the activity can be used in sequence or they can be used individually as “stand alone” activities. This allows the educator flexibility in utilizing the activity. Part I illustrates the sampling distribution of the sample mean. Part II illustrates confidence intervals for the population mean. Part III illustrates hypothesis tests for the population mean. This activity is appropriate for use in an introductory college or high school AP statistics course. Key words: sampling distribution of a sample mean, confidence interval for a mean, hypothesis test on a mean, simulation, random rectangles Thu, 12 May 2005 12:35:15 -0400Who is Buying iMacs?
