- State the rejection criterion (α)
- State the null and alternative hypotheses and define the parameter(s)
- Determine which test to perform – Explain!
- Collect the data (address type of study and randomization)
- Check all necessary assumption(s)
- Calculate the appropriate statistic(s)
- Calculate the appropriate test statistic
- Calculate the p-value
- State your rejection decision
- Summarize your findings in terms of the problem
**If rejected H**, compute a 100(1-α)% confidence region for parameter_{0}

Video description of these steps.

All hypothesis tests follow the same basic structure. However, other resources may label the steps somewhat differently. Below are examples from other resources.
