It is pretty common across most schools to find the grades at the MBA level divided between A’s and B’s. As such, you expect the mean GPA to be around 3.50. Using the sample of 200 MBA students, conduct a one-sample hypothesis test to determine if the mean graduate GPA is different from 3.50. Use a .05 significance level. Report on your findings (100+ words, 3 or more sentences). In your report, be sure to include the results of the hypothesis test and indicate whether you are using a two-tail, upper-tail, or lower-tail test. Also include a chart (a bar chart or column chart will probably work best) comparing the calculated mean with the hypothesized mean.

We have no access to your data, but this might help.

Z = (mean1 - mean2)/standard error (SE) of difference between means

SEdiff = √(SEmean1^2 + SEmean2^2)

SEm = SD/√n

If only one SD is provided, you can use just that to determine SEdiff.

Find table in the back of your statistics text labeled something like "areas under normal distribution" to find the proportion related to the Z score.

It would be a two-tailed test, since you are not predicting the direction of the difference.
