Hypothesis Testing
 

A hypothesis test consists of two complementary propositions. For example, suppose that the test is to see if a process mean differs from zero:

H0 the mean equals zero (this is the 'null hypothesis')
H1 the mean does not equal zero (this is the 'alternative hypothesis')

The test will determine the probability of getting the observed results if H0 were true. This probability is known as the p-value.

Terms used in hypothesis testing include:

Alpha Risk Power of a Test

Alpha Value (Significance Level)

P-value
Beta Risk Statistical v Practical Significance
Single/Double Sided Test Type I & Type II Errors
 

Hypothesis testing is covered in the MiC Quality Advanced Statistics Course.
