• ### Analysis Tool: One Arm Binomial

This page calculates either sample size or power for a one sample binomial problem. Users choose between a one-sided and two-sided test and specify the null and alternative hypothesized proportions. The calculator also gives the critical value.

• ### SPSS tutorial for Multiple Comparisons

This tutorial exposes students to conducting multiple comparisons in SPSS. This html based tutorial provides extensive screen shots and an example data set. Topics covered in the tutorial include one way ANOVA, preplanned contrasts, Bonferroni, Post Hoc Tukey's HSD, and Scheffe's multiple contrasts.
• ### Statistics at Square One: Survival Analysis

Survival analysis is concerned with studying the time between entry to a study and a subsequent event. This site looks at the Kaplan-Meier survival curve, its method and how to calculate it. It provides exercises as well as answers.
• ### Concepts of Confidence Intervals

This PowerPoint presentation dicusses general concepts of confidence intervals and interprets confidence intervals for a mean, difference in two means, and the relative risk. The original presenation is available for download.
• ### Confidence Interval for a Mean

This PowerPoint lecture presenation explains confidence intervals for a mean when using a small sample. It discusses the t-distribution, compares the t-statistic to the z-statistic, and provides an example of a small sample confidence interval. The original presentation is available for download.
• ### Is He Guilty?

This PowerPoint presentation evaluates type I errors in civil trials compared to criminal trials as well as provides an example of a hypothesis test and its components. The original presenation is available for download.
• ### Hypothesis Testing

This PowerPoint lecture presentation discusses comparing the means of two dependent populations using the paired T-test and defines the concepts of this hypothesis test. The original presentation is available for downloading.
• ### Analysis Tool: "Statistics to Use" Calculators/Applet

This collection of calculators allows users to perform a number of statistical applications. Each provides background on the procedure and an example. Users can compute Descriptive Statistics and perform t-tests, Chi-square tests, Kolmogorov-Smirnov tests, Fisher's Exact Test, contingency tables, ANOVA, and regression.

• ### Power of a Hypothesis Test

This applet performs a hypothesis test for the mean of a single normal population, variance known. Users set the hypothesized mean, true mean, variance, and appropriate alternative hypothesis. The applet plots a representative distribution under the given values with power shaded in blue and significance level shaded in red.
• ### Attitudes Towards Statistics (ATS)

The 29-item attitudinal scale consists of two subscales: attitude toward the field of statistics (20 items) and attitude toward the course (9 items). Students are asked to respond to how they currently feel about a statement (i.e., "I feel that statistics will be useful to me in my profession") using a 1 (strongly disagree) to 5 (strongly agree) response scale.
