A psychologist wants to estimate the variance of employee test scores. A random
sample of 18 scores had a sample standard deviation 10.4. Find a 90% confidence
2
interval for the population variance. What assumption, if any, have you made in calculating this interval estimate?

  • statistics -

    90% interval = mean ± 1.645 SD

    SD^2 = variance

    Assume normal distribution.
