Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"We discussed hypothesis testing using one proportion vs. one mean. The student has a project due this week and was motivated to complete it. He needed some assistance determining which type of testing to complete but was eventually able to figure it out."
"This session we covered an introduction to confidence intervals and their various uses. No new quiz or test results, next major test will be the 26th. Although the student had some difficulty understanding the concept at first, she understood at the end of the session. No extra practice although we will continue reviewing next session."
"We covered logistic regression and how to run these kinds of models in SPSS. It was a very difficult assignment, but I feel like she understood the main points. She is going to complete some practice quiz questions and then we will meet again on Wednesday."
"The student and I met to study for her statistics final. She had a worksheet with an example of a t test, a z test, a paired t test, and an independent samples t test. We made it through all 4 of them in the 90 minutes. Her professor has given them a study sheet that they will have access to during the final, so we worked with that sheet the whole time. She should be able to do well with the study sheet."
"The student has been learning about statistics with two samples. She has gotten better at finding Z-scores and p-values, but was having trouble putting together everything she has learned. We went over some of the problems she had on her assignment, and we talked about how to recognize which test to use based off of sample size, and whether or not the standard deviation is known. Since she had already spent a lot of time working on statistics, we finished the session a bit early, and she will try to finish the assignment on her own. We will meet again on Friday to cover new material as well as any questions she struggles with."
"Today we continued our work on the normal distribution. The student is making good progress. He is getting correct answers and doing good reasoning. I want it to be automatic for him, and I think he is getting much closer. We went over how to read values from a standard normal distribution table, including the different kinds of "tricks" that problems will use to make reading the values more difficult. We also read it "backwards" starting with a probability under the curve and then finding the z score. We computed many z scores. We also talked about the definition of the complement."
