I am designing a demo for a class. It shows a "theoretical" normal distribution. It adds "raw data" to the distribution (using gnoise()). I want to return a report on the Accuracy of the raw data to represent the theory.
I understand the hypotheses tests based on t and tcrit. What is confusing me is the P value. Is this a probability of the null hypothesis being true? Or vice-versa? Or something else?
Alternatively, what might be a better message to report on this demo about the accuracy of the "raw data" relative to "theory" (an infinite population size).
