Chapter 8 Review
We’ve been allowing students to use a 4 Step Significance Tests Template up until this point. They will not be given one on tomorrow’s test so we wanted to make sure they got plenty of practice today. It’s important that students know what they are successful with and what they need to work on. To help with this, we had students start the first question by themselves. They should only complete the portions of the question that they know how to do, i.e. the Plan portion or the Conclude portion, etc. After they’ve completed as much of the problem as they know, they will switch their work with their neighbor. The partner should add in any missing work using a different color pen so that the student will know what they missed the first time. After the partner adds in as much as possible, they will trade one more time with other pair of students in their group of 4. We also used this review technique in Chapter 7.
Depending on how well students are doing with the four steps, you could repeat this process for the remaining practice problems or they could just complete them individually or in pairs. Keep in mind when you pick your four-step problems that you should pick a couple that challenge students, like one with a z-score that is not on Table A or a two sided test.
