ATTENTION: To those individuals who purchased Quantitative Data Analysis Using Microsoft® Excel: A School Administrator’s Guide prior to July 23, 2015.


It has come to our attention that the Z.TEST function in Excel only provides the user with the correct p value (level of statistical significance) when the sample mean is GREATER THAN the population mean.  If your sample mean is less than the comparative population mean the Z.TEST function does not calculate the correct p value for either a z-Test or a Single Sample t-Test computation.   Consequently, we have re-written the first 8 pages of Chapter 5 (pages 107 – 114) instructing the user how to calculate these statistical tests accurately and properly.  You can download this 8 page insert by clicking on the link below this narrative.  We apologize for this inconvenience and hope that you find the revision acceptable and helpful.
