Power of a Test

  • Phillip I. Good

Abstract

In Chapter 3, you were introduced to some practical, easily computed tests of hypotheses. But are they the best tests one can use? And are they always appropriate? In this chapter, we consider the assumptions that underlie a statistical test and look at some of a test’s formal properties: its significance level, power, and robustness.
