  1. Formula for sensitivity:
    TP / (TP+FN)
  2. Formula for specificity
    TN / (TN+FP)
  3. Formula for PPV
    • TP / (TP+FP)
    • (all are "positive" test results)
  4. Formula for NPV:
    TN / (TN+FN)
  5. What does the null hypothesis state?
    That there is NO difference between to groups.
  6. What is type 1 or α error? How does it relate to the null hypothesis?
    αlpha error is αrrogant: assumes a difference between 2 populations when there is none: incorrectly rejects null hypthesis.
  7. What is type II or β error?
    β error is humβle: assumes no difference in populations when there is one: incorrectly accepts null hypothesis.
  8. What is the significance of p < .05?
    95% certainty that the observed difference between two groups is real (5% chance that it is only due to chance)
  9. How can you use a 95% confidence interval to determine whether a difference is real?
    The further the CI is from 1.0, the more likely it is real. If it "crosses" 1, it is NOT statitstically significant.
  10. Mode:
    most frequently occurring number
  11. Mean:
    average
  12. Median:
    the middle number
  13. 3 types of QUANTITATIVE variables:
    • 1. Students t-test
    • 2. Paired t-test
    • 3. ANOVA
  14. What is the ability to detect disease in a population?
    Sensitivity
  15. What is the ability to state that disease is not present?
    Specificity
  16. What is the likelihood that a positive result is real?
    PPV
  17. What is the likelihood that negative result is negative?
    NPV
  18. Formula for accuracy:
    (TP + TN) / (TP + TN + FP + FN)
  19. What is the impact of prevalence on Sensitivity?
    NONE!!
  20. What is the impact of prevalence on PPV?
    As prevlance goes up, so does PPV.
  21. What is the formula for the false positivity rate?
    1 - specificity
  22. What is the formula for the false negative rate?
    1 - sensitivity
