• ### Exploring the Goodness of Fit in Linear Models

A "12 page" tutorial that explores the liner models via excel spreadsheets. The learning module leads the user through various aspects of linear modeling. This tutorial includes a worksheet that allows students to vary the scatter (or noise) level, by adjusting the scroll bar or by clicking on the arrows, to see how the slope and intercept of line respond to the addition of scatter to the data, while monitoring the value of r^2.

• ### Psych 431 Latent Variable Models

This course website provides materials for teaching and learning path analysis. Materials include Regression Review, Introduction to Path Notation, Standardized Path Models, Unstandardized Path Models, Matrix Algebra, and many SAS programs.
• ### Chi-Square Test or the "Goodness of Fit" Test

This tutorial explains the theory and use of the Chi-Square Test for goodness of fit and demonstrates it with an example on mastery test scores. Data is given as well as SPSS and Minitab code.
• ### Instructor Reputation and Teacher Ratings

This case study covers the concepts including: boxplots, stem and leaf displays, two-sample t tests, and analysis of variance. It also assesses the question, "Does an instructor's reputation affect ratings of the instructor's lecture?"
• ### Chi Square Test of Deviations from Expected Frequencies

The applet allows users to sample from a normal distribution or from a uniform distribution. It shows the expected values and the observed values and computes the deviation. Then, a chi-square test shows if the deviations are significant for both the normal and uniform distributions.
• ### Relative Risks and Odd Ratios

This site provides a PowerPoint presentation of a lesson and examples of relative risks and odds ratios.
• ### Engineering Statistics Handbook

The goal of this handbook is to help scientists and engineers incorporate statistical methods in their work as efficiently as possible.
• ### Kolmogorov-Smirnov Goodness-of-Fit Test (Engineering Statistics Handbook)

This page, part of the NIST Engineering Statistics handbook, describes the Kolmogorov-Smirnov goodness of fit test. It contains a graph of the empirical distribution function with the cumulative distribution function, a definition of the test, the questions it answers, the assumptions that it makes, and links to other goodness of fits tests and a case study.
• ### Point Estimation

This online, interactive lesson on point estimation provides examples, exercises, and applets concerning estimators, method of moments, maximum likelihood, Bayes estimators, best unbiased estimators, and sufficient, complete and ancillary statistics.
• ### Random Samples

This online, interactive lesson on random samples provides examples, exercises, and applets concerning sample mean, law of large numbers, sample variance, partial sums, central limit theorem, special properties of normal samples, order statistics, and sample covariance and correlation.
