Title: Type I and Type II Errors - Making Mistakes in the Justice System
Url: http://www.intuitor.com/statistics/T1T2Errors.html
Publisher: Intuitor
Description: Created by Intuitor.com, this webpage uses the criminal trials in the US Justice system to illustrate hypothesis testing, type I error, and type II error. An applet allows the user to examine the probability of type I errors and type II errors under various conditions. An applet allows users to visualize p-values and the power of a test. This is a great example of how statistical testing can be used across many different disciplines. This lesson does nice work in both explaining the theories used and also how they relate back to the data collected.
