Yes. The rules specifically discuss rate adjustment (direct and indirect) and Mantel-Haenszel. I don't know if you will see them on regional tests, though.Are there any new formulas we have to know? There's already a LOT of stuff to memorize in this event. I would be completely doomed without my one sheet of notes, and my school tryouts don't allow notes....help!
The rules say "basic statistical methods." To me, Chi square is basic. Fisher's exact test etc. are not. The handout comes from national, though, so I would be prepared to see those at that competition. Since Mantel-Haenszel is specifically mentioned in the rules, you might see that as well - although I would not have predicted mantel-Haenszel Chi Square, but MHRR and MHOR. Just throw the formulas on you sheet, and understand when and why they are used.Will we be expected to have the tables of statistical significance (with different levels of confidence) on our reference sheet, or will the event supervisor provide us with them?
Also (this is for Div C only), can anyone make sense of the last three tests on the statistics hand-out? It's really dense and I wound up just looking it up myself
