Recent Tutoring Session Reviews
"During this session, we reviewed statistical concepts of hypothesis testing in preparation for today's test. Specifically, we reviewed various scenarios that required identifying the appropriate null hypothesis, the statistical test with related critical value, and the appropriate decision rule. We discussed the nature of the non-directional test and how that influences the location of the critical value on the sampling distribution. We also discussed the interpretation of the three ANOVA sum of squares components as well as the interpretation and setup of the test of a population correlation."
"I helped the student understand how he should be collecting data for his project and how he should set up his table. We also went over how to find the mean of the data collected and how to compare that to the population mean. We then talked about some graphs that he will be able to use for the data analysis. Most of this can be done by using Excel, and I have agreed to work with him via email to make sure that he is on the right track for everything."
"I helped the student work through problems on using t and z-tests to determine whether it can be concluded that there is a difference in a statistic between two groups. We also went over using paired t-tests to determine whether there is an observable change between two sets of paired values."
"I worked with the student in preparation for his first exam tomorrow on Chapters 1 - 5. Using his notes, quizzes, and textbook, we reviewed the material that is to be tested. We also began making a study guide with several important concepts that he will use to review this evening during his own study time. I was able to correct and improve upon several of the answers with regard to relative frequency."
"In our first meeting together, the student and I went over various concepts in preparation for her midterm on Thursday. The main focus of the session was probability. We went over how to use technology to solve problems that would otherwise require a table to do, which she seemed to enjoy learning. The functions we covered include normalpdf, normalcdf, InvNorm, binompdf, and binomcdf. In addition, we looked at some union and intersection Venn diagram questions."
"In our first session the student and I began by covering concepts from his Statistics course, namely graphical representations of data and measures of central tendency. Then, we moved to a review of the central topics of Microeconomics, which will be on his first Macro exam. He demonstrated clear mastery of the reviewed material. He expressed concern going forward with respect to staying on top of the material in statistics, which we will focus on."
