69. 96, so this test statistic does not lead to rejection of H0. 7 is consistent with the notion that 80% of the students in the population are proficient in math. This procedure is called the Wald test, and it may be less reliable than some other methods discussed in this section, especially for small samples. One of the problems with this test is that it relies on the estimate of the population proportion (p) to compute the standard error, and this could lead to unreliable values for the standard error, especially when the estimate is based on a small sample.

Specifically, the normal approximation can be used when both nQ s 5 and n(1 – Q) s 5. 2)  2  5 so the normal approximation may not be accurate. However, we will proceed with our example to illustrate this method. The normal approximation test statistic is very similar to the test statistic used in comparing a sample mean against a hypothesized population mean when the dependent variable is continuous. Specifically, a z-statistic is constructed using the standard formula z Estimate Parameter .
