Chi-square tests are non parametric tests
Difference between parametric and nonparametric tests:
Parametric tests make assumptions about the parameters of the population distribution from which the sample is drawn. This is often the assumption that the population data are normally distributed. Nonparametric tests don’t require that your data follow the normal distribution. They’re known as distribution-free tests and, as such, can be used for non-Normal variables.
Requirements for Chi-Square tests:
The sampling method should be simple random sampling. The variable under study should be categorical. The expected value of the number of sample observations in each level of the variable should be at least 5.
Limitations of Chi-Square tests:
All participants measured must be independent, means that an individual cannot fit in more than one category. The data must be frequency data The expected value of the number of sample observations in each level of the variable should be at least 5. Chi-square not be used if the sample size is less than 50

The Bitter Bottling Company has developed "Featherweight," the cola with fewer calories and less taste. To evaluate this new product, the marketing manager gives a taste test to a random sample of 300 people. Each person in the sample tastes Featherweight and 4 other diet cola brands. To avoid bias, the actual brand labels are replaced by the letters A, B, C, D, and E. The results of the sample are shown in the following table:
 Brand  Number of Preferring Brand  A 50 B 65 C 45 D 70 E 70
Do the customers prefer a particular brand more than the others?
Use an alpha of 0.05.
1.What type of hypothesis testing should be used?
a. Chi-square Goodness of Fit Test
b. Chi-square Test on Independence
2. What are the null and alternative hypothesis?
a. H0: The market does not have preferences; H1: The market does have preference
b. H0: The market does have preferences; H1: The market does not have preference
3. What are the significance level and the type of test?
a. α=0.05, Right-tailed
b. α=0.05, left-tailed
c. α=0.05, two-tailed

A random sample of 175 students was selected from a large high school. They were each asked their current grade level and whether they had a driver's license. The responses are displayed in the table.
Grade LevelDriver's License? 9th  10th  11th  12th Yes 152148 No 28422010 
The principal would like to know if these data provide convincing evidence of a relationship between grade level and having a driver's license in the population of all students in her school. What is the appropriate inference procedure?
1. chi-square test for goodness of fit because the data come from one random sample
2. chi-square test for homogeneity because the data come from independent random samples
3. chi-square test for association/independence because the data come from one random sample
4. chi-square test for association/independence because the data come from independent random samples

Table 1 gives the distribution of the number of acceptances of 100 students into 3 departments in College of Commerce and Business Administration. Test at the 5% level of significance that the distribution of acceptances is approximately binomial if the probability of a student's being accepted into college is 0.40.
What is the computed value of chi-square? Blank 1
What is the tabular value of chi-square? Blank 2
Choose a or b Blank 3
a. Accept the null hypothesis because the tabular value of chi-square is larger than the computed value of chi-square.
b. Accept the alternative hypothesis because the tabular value of chi-square is smaller than the computed value of chi-square.
