Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"The student and I reviewed the difference between one sample t tests, independent sample t tests, and related samples t tests. We also practiced doing related samples t tests by hand and writing out statistical and substantive conclusions."
"We went over most of the problems on sample test #4. These dealt mostly with confidence intervals and hypothesis tests. We went through all the steps of one complete hypothesis test, as well as confidence intervals involving both proportions and means. The student is showing definite improvement."
"The client is brand new to statistics. We had our first tutoring session last night and continued with the second session today. I introduced the concepts of characteristics of the normal curve, z-scores, critical values, rejection regions, confidence levels/ intervals and what exactly is meant by standard deviation and variance. We look at the formula for z-scores and related it to standardizing scores. We talked about hypothesis testing in relation to all of the above. I recommended some videos for him to watch. Next session we will start calculating z-scores and solving problems based on proportions."
"We went over normal and t distributions, finding z-score, and binomial distributions. We looked at finding mean, standard, deviation, and variance of different distributions as well as class width, midpoints, and ranges. We also touched on probability."
"The student and I started to review for her final. She is doing well, even on the areas which she claims to be having difficulties. It's impossible to predict how she will do on the final, but I'm not too worried."
"For this session, the student and I reviewed material for his final. We went through 2 practice finals that he will cover. Concepts included understanding variable types (continuous vs discrete) and which test to perform with the variables. He understood the material better when we drew a flowchart to help him review. I left him with another practice final to utilize with his new flowchart, and we will review next session."
