Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"Today the student worked on her homework assignment, which involved calculating the mean and standard deviation of a sample and the confidence intervals using statdisk. We also discussed what it meant when two samples had confidence intervals that overlapped or when then did not overlap. We discussed what the implications were for when we had a point estimate that was or was not within the bounds of the confidence interval. She had a really good grasp of the concepts today, and felt confident that she could finish the assignment on her own."
"Today, we reviewed for the student's exam. We focused most of our time on hypothesis testing. He struggled a bit with the interpretations. He understands when to reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis; however, he had a hard time writing his conclusion in context with the questions. We will work on this more at our next session."
"Today, we went through some homework problems on hypothesis testing and some test problems covering probability, hypothesis testing, and vocabulary. We also looked at how to do some stats functions in a graphing calculator."
"We began reviewing for an upcoming test. The material involved significance test and confidence intervals. The student was already proficient at determining which distribution to use in situations, but he needed help with determining the specific calculations needed. I showed him the formulas for the lesser known parts of the confidence intervals and how to answer for all possible applications. Once he had a handle on the material, he practiced with a couple of examples that I provided. We ended the session completing a study guide for the test."
"We continued from our prior session covering topics for her final exam including: sampling distributions, sampling proportion distributions, assumptions around normal data structures, z stats, confidence intervals, confidence levels, and level of significance. The student asked specific questions for some topics and also asked for some more general overviews of other topics. Scheduling another session for tomorrow where we will work through some problems together in anticipation of her final on Saturday."
"We continued with our review for an exam. The topics covered included point estimation, confidence intervals, and hypothesis testing. We went over problems from each of these areas and planned how the remainder of the student's study time should be focused."
