Performing a Binomial hypothesis test

Test if the parameter of a binomial distribution is equal to the hypothesized value.

  1. Select a cell in the dataset.
  2. On the Analyse-it ribbon tab, in the Statistical Analyses group, click Distribution, and then click the hypothesis test.
    The analysis task pane opens.
  3. In the Y drop-down list, select the categorical variable.
  4. If the data are in frequency form, in the Frequency drop-down list, select the frequency count variable.
  5. In the Hypotheses drop-down list, select the null and alternative hypothesis.
  6. In the Hypothesized value edit box, type the expected value of the parameter under the null hypothesis.
  7. Optional: To compare the p-value against a predefined significance level, in the Significance level edit box, type the maximum probability of rejecting the null hypothesis when in fact it is true (typically 5% or 1%).
  8. Click Calculate.
