1. The National Center for Education Statistics would like to test the hypothesis that the proportion of Bachelor’s degrees that were earned by women equals 0.60. A random sample of 140 college graduates with Bachelor degrees found that 75 were women. The National Center for Education Statistics would like to set α = 0.10. The conclusion for this hypothesis test would be that because the absolute value of the test statistic is

less than the absolute value of the critical value, we cannot conclude that the proportion of Bachelor’s degrees that were earned by women does not equals 0.60.
