Successful HE Students
The Nuffield Foundation provide this resource which enables students to carry out significance tests on proportions and test hypotheses about successful applicants to higher education.
The data provided on information sheet A is simulated but similar to real data available on the UCAS website.
Information sheet B outlines the method for carrying out a significance test on a proportion and provides a worked example.
Information sheet C outlines the method for carrying out a significance test on the difference between two proportions and gives a worked example.
The same methods and examples are also given in the slideshow.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
