DESCRIPTION:Speakers: Hendry Raharjo (Chalmers University)\n\nThe approach
is based on participant-centered learning of an hour workshop. The class
starts with a real problem for the students to estimate the true proportio
n of red beads in a box containing approximately 4000 beads (red and white
). Using a random sampling of 50 units\, each student draws his/her own sa
mple using a paddle two times of which the second sample size is doubled.
An MS-Excel template is used to compute the p-value and confidence interva
l. Think-pair-share method is used for interpreting the p-value\, both wha
t it means and what it does not. Confidence interval (CI) interpretation i
s taught by drawing a collection of single interval that each student has.
Here it is emphasized that those intervals are drawn from the same box (p
opulation). Misinterpretations around the meaning of CI are also discussed
. Changing the null hypothesis is suggested to compare the effectiveness o
f p-value and CI in estimation. The same analysis is repeated using the la
rger sample to demonstrate the effect of sample size.\n\nhttps://conferenc
