Test yourself: Hypothesis testing and a confidence interval

How well have I met the learning outcomes?

The following are quizzes and solutions I’ve used when teaching these topics in the classroom environment:

Feel free to use them to test yourself too.

I’d recommend doing this only after having completed the following lessons and the associated self-assessment questions.

And I’d suggest sitting down and simulating the same test environment: open book; open device; 25-30 minutes. Use it to figure out whether the lectures notes you’ve been creating for yourself are sufficiently strong and accessible to help you through, and whether your work on the self-assessment questions has given you a solid understanding.

You can do whatever works best for you, of course, but I’d also recommend only looking at the solutions after you’ve completed the assessment.
