## Summary:

- Must a one sided hypothesis test agree with the confidence interval of the same level of significance?

I learned that the confidence interval and a two sided hypothesis test (test for difference) agree if both have the same significance level.

Is that also true for one sided hypothesis tests? For instance, must a right-tailed Hypothesis test with alpha = 0.05 agree with the 95% confidence level centered at the estimator? I'm thinking if alpha is 0.05 then the tail areas in a confidence interval would be 0.025. But in the right sided hypothesis test the right tail area of alpha is 0.05 and not 0.025.
