YOUR TECHNICAL EVALUATION

Complete the MSG1 multiple-choice quizzes to find out the training appropriate to you :

1. Which of the following statements are true? |
||

a. The median is the most frequently observed value. | ||

b. Half of the results are less than or equal to the median. | ||

c. On a small sample, the median is impacted by outliers | ||

d. The median and the mean are always very close. | ||

e. The median, second quartile, 5th decile and 50th percentile are always the same. | ||

2. The following values were obtained: 12 – 6 – 12 – 8 – 10 |
||

a. What is the mean ? | ||

b. What is the median ? | ||

Fill out the MSG2 MCQ to complete your assessment:

1. We wish to compare the means of 2 samples, with a risk of 5%. The calculated p-value is 0.231 (23.1%). In this case: |
||

a. We do not reject the null hypothesis, which is H0: m1 = m2 | ||

b. We do not reject the null hypothesis, which is H0: m1 ≠ m2 | ||

c. We reject the null hypothesis, and we retain the alternative hypothesis, which is H1: m1 = m2 | ||

d. We reject the null hypothesis, and we retain the alternative hypothesis which is H1: m1 ≠ m2 | ||

2. We wish to compare the means of 2 samples, with a risk of 5%. The calculated p-value is 0.231 (23.1%). How to formulate the conclusion? |
||

a. The statistical test shows equality between the means, with a risk of error lower than 5%. | ||

b. The statistical test does not reveal any differences between the means at the 5% level | ||

c. The statistical test shows a difference between the means, with a risk of error lower than 5%. | ||

d. The statistical test does not show equality between the means at the 5% threshold. | ||

3. Biological measurements are made on the same patient before and after the application of a treatment. In statistics, the measurements are called: |
||

a. Paired | ||

b. Independent | ||

c. Jointed | ||

4. . What is the name of the test in which H0: m1 < m2 versus H1: m1 > m2: |
||

a. The equivalence test for inferiority | ||

b. The one-tailed comparison test | ||

c. The signs test | ||

5. We wish to compare the average marks obtained during an exam by students from 2 different schools, which statistical test should be applied? |
||

a. Fisher’s test | ||

b. Bartlett’s test | ||

c. The T-test, paired Student’s t test | ||

d. The T-test, independent Student’s t test | ||

e. The Chi-2 test | ||

f. Shapiro-Wilk’s test | ||
