Using Morey’s SEV App to get the 5 entries (for non-reject) in Table 3.3 (SIST, p. 145)

To use the Richard Morey Severity app to get the entries in Table 3.3 (SIST p. 145) you have to click on sampling distributions and make the replacements shown below (as it was created for an example we used with different numbers). His way of wording Severity, however, is enlightening. These entries are all for sample mean M = 151, and thus lead to “non-reject” (for the given 0.025 significance level cut-off). Hence, he computes SEV for mu ≤ various values. In each case, SEV is the area to the right of M = 151, computed under the alternative (153, 152, 151, 150.5, 150).

*Note I pasted these in the opposite order shown in Table 3.3, from largest to smallest.

The Savage Quote I mentioned today regarding the relevance of the stopping rule. The Stopping Rule Principle (SRP) holds that it’s irrelevant to the import of the data.The quote is on SIST p. 48.

“I learned the stopping rule principle from Professor Barnard, in conversation in the summer of 1952. Frankly, I then thought it a scandal that anyone in the profession could advance an idea so patently wrong, even as today I can scarcely believe that some people resist an idea so patently right”. (Savage 1962, p. 76)
