Using the Summary Template
This template contains the summary box located at the bottom of each regular page of the wiki. The summaries themselves are written on pages in the namespace Summary-L##. To access the summary for a particular page, type in the namespace replacing the hash marks with the lesson number (03, 19, 21 for example) into the url bar after title= and hit enter. The only parameter for this template is for the lesson number itself and is anonymous. The code you would include on the page of lesson 12 for instance would be {{Summary|12}} which will display:
  • The key characteristic of dependent samples (or matched pairs) is that knowing which subjects will be in group 1 determines which subjects will be in group 2.
  • We use slightly different variables when conducting inference using dependent samples:
Group 1 values: $x_1$  Group 2 values: $x_2$  Differences: $d$  Population mean: $\mu_d$  Sample mean: $\bar d$  Sample standard deviation: $s_d$
  • When conducting hypothesis tests using dependent samples, the null hypothesis is always $\mu_d=0$, indicating that there is no change between the first population and the second population. The alternative hypothesis can be left-tailed ($<$), right-tailed($>$), or two-tailed($\ne$).
