p-values behave uniformly. Now as p(np) is fixed and n goes to infinity, binomial converges to normal(Poisson). Now suppose I take random binomial samplings and fir normal(Poisson) to it, for say n = 1000. Will my p-value still be uniformly distributed or as binomial converges to normal(Poisson), p-values mostly will be in 0.8-1?

I think what you are referring to is sampling a binomial random variable X and then looking at the distribution of F ( X ) where F is the binomial CDF. This is actually not uniform; it is a sort of discrete approximation of a uniform variable. In the case where normal approximation becomes valid, it converges to a uniform variable. In the case where Poisson approximation becomes valid, it does not converge to a uniform variable, but rather to the distribution of F ( P ) where P has the limiting Poisson distribution and F is the limiting Poisson CDF. Again this isn't uniform.

How do you determine the highest level of significance (in decimal form) at which the null hypothesis will not be rejected?
Let's say for instance I got a p-value of 0.001 and a test statistic of 3.273, then is 0.0005 the highest level of level of significance at which H 0 will not be rejected?

Let X be a sample space, T a test statistic and G be a finite group of transformations (with M elements) from X onto itself. Under the null-hypothesis the distribution of the random variable X is invariant under the transformations in G. Let
p ^ = 1 M g G I { T ( g X ) T ( X ) } .
Show that P ( p ^ u ) u for 0 u 1 under the null hypothesis

Consider testing H 0 : θ 3   vs   H a : θ < 3 using a test in which the null hypothesis is rejected when the statistic T = min { X 1 , . . . , X n }, for example of size n has small values. Compute the p-value using the sample 3.11 , 3.3 , 3.46

X 1 . . . X n ~ Bernoulli(p) independent. I also have the following test hypothesis: H 0 : p = p 0 and H 1 : p > p 0 . I define my test as follows:
T : I refuse H 0 in favour of P 1 if the number of successes is very high.
Now suppose p 0 = 0.6 and n = 20, we find that we have 18 successes.
Find the p-value of the test.
Now this is what I have done:
p v a l u e = P ( x i 18 ) = 0.0005240494 However confronting it with the command:
b i n o m . t e s t ( 18 , 20 , p = .6 , a l t e r n a t i v e = g r e a t e r )
It is not right (by a factor of 10). My problem is that I am not able to correctly asses what the "number of succession is very high". How do I work around this?

Let X i be Gaussian random variables with μ = 10 and σ 2 = 1. We decide to use the test statistic μ ^ = 1 20 i = 1 20 X i and following tests:
| μ ^ 10 | > τ: Reject H 0
| μ ^ 10 | τ: Cannot reject H 0
1) Find τ if you want to have 95 % confidence in the test.
2) You find that μ ^ = 10.588. Do you reject H 0 ? If so, what is the p-value?
Using textbook equations, I found out that for
1) τ = σ μ ^ = 1.96 1 20 = 0.392
2) | 10.588 10 | = 0.588 > 0.392 Reject H 0
p-value = 0.003

For H 0 : π = 0.20, for instance, the score test statistic is Z ( s ) = 2.50, which has two-sided P-value 0.012 < 0.05, so 0.20 does not fall in the interval.
It is understood that the score test statistic is 2.5 using n = 25 and π ^ = 0 (in the previous description), but the part where the P-value is 0.012 is not understood.

Find the p-value (manually) of the following
Hypothesis testing.
H 0 : μ 3 vs H 1 : μ > 3
The main thing I know is that
P ( R e j μ 3 ) = P ( X 3 μ 3 ) = e 1 0.36
Can I use the z value and use the formula probability of z?
