**MathGuru**, Wednesday, April 20, 2011 at 7:38pmUsually you use z-tests when sample sizes are large (n is greater than

or equal to 30) whether or not you know the population standard deviation.

If you do not know the population standard deviation and have a small

sample (n < 30), then you can use t-tests.

The alternate or alternative hypothesis tells you whether or not the test is directional or nondirectional. If the alternate hypothesis uses "greater than" or "less than" symbols, the test is directional. If the alternate hypothesis uses "does not equal" in its statement, then the test is nondirectional.

I hope these few hints will help.
