Information and hypothesis testing for slope.

When testing the slope M of the regression line for the population, you usually test that the slope is 0, or H0: M = 0. A slope of 0 indicates that there is no linear relationship between x and y. to perform the t-test for the slope of regression line and se is the standard error of estimate. Then, use the critical values found in a t-distribution table to make a decision whether to reject or fail to reject the null hypothesis. Alternatively, you can use technology to calculate the standardized test statistic as well as the corresponding P-value. If P ≤ α, then reject the null hypothesis. If P>α, then do not reject H0.
