Hypothesis examination is the process in which we compare between two differing hypotheses. i.e. the null hypothesis H0 and the alternative hypothesis. As the null hypothesis is examined, a choice is either correct or incorrect. An incorrect conclusion can be produced in two methods: We can deny the null hypothesis once it is true (Type I error) or we cannot succeed to eliminate the null hypothesis when it is incorrect (Type II error). The possibility of getting Type I and Type II errors is defined by leading and beta edition, individually. The p-estimate is the possibility of getting findings as excessive as the examined outcomes of a statistical hypothesis test, assuming that null assumption is appropriate. A reduced p-value means that there is stronger evidence in preference of the alternate hypothesis.

Keywords: Alternative, hypothesis, level of significances, non-parametric, null, P-value, parametric
