Audio Clips

Null Hypothesis Testing
This lecture discusses null hypothesis testing, Type I error, Type II error, and p values (27:59).

Bell Curve and Null Hypothesis Testing
This lecture provides an illustrative example of null hypothesis testing and how assumptions regarding the characteristics of the normal curve allow us to make inferences from a sample to the population (26:48).

Power and Effect Size
Lecture discusses power, ways to increase power, and advantages and disadvantages of each method. Also discusses effect size, Type II errors, beta, and power (43:16).

Prison Psychology and the Stanford Prison Experiment
During this NPR clip, Philip Zimbardo discusses his famous psychology experiment and how it relates to current events. This can be applied to learning about hypothesis testing and samples within a population (10:59).
