The basis of inferential (testing) statistical analysis is that data are composed of two elements,
a. theoretical expectation + error b. mean + standard error Would the two correct elements be listed in choice a.? The mean of a sample and the standard error (which is the sample’s standard deviation?) is more descriptive than inferential (testing), right? (Or did I completely confuse the terms?) Thank you.
