Week 2 - Quiz 2 Time Remaining: Question 1. 1. In a screening test, the probability of a person with the disease having a positive test is:

 

(Points : 1)

 

Sensitivity

 

Specificity

 

Positive Predictive Value

 

Negative Predictive Value Question 2. 2. If 2-stage testing is performed such that only subjects who are positive for both tests are

 

considered positive, what is the net impact on sensitivity and specificity? (Points : 1)

 

Sensitivity and specificity will both increase

 

Sensitivity and specificity will both decrease

 

Sensitivity will increase; specificity will decrease

 

Sensitivity will decrease; specificity will increase Question 3. 3. In a community with a population of 10,000 people, the prevalence of a certain disease

 

is 5%. A screening test for this disease with a sensitivity of 95% and specificity of 80% is implemented

 

on the entire population. How many TRUE POSITIVE results will there be? (Points : 1)

codes 25 as positive and 75 as negative, and radiologist B codes 32 as positive and 68 as negative, how

 

many x-rays would we expect them to agree on, just by chance? (Points : 1)

disease

 

The number of people who die of a disease divided by the number of people at risk of

 

developing the disease

 

The number of people who die of a disease divided by the total number of deaths

Short term, acute conditions

 

Evaluation of cancer treatment

 

Traumatic injuries

 

Patients diagnosed within the last five years Question 8. 8. In a study examining the survival of cancer patients, 100 patients were enrolled at baseline. After one year, 20 patients were known to have died. Assuming no patients were lost to

 

follow-up, what was the probability of surviving one year? (OK to show numerator/denominator)

 

(Points : 1) Question 9. 9. What would be the one-year survival rate in the previous question if ten patients had

 

been lost to follow-up during the first year? Use the life table method. (Points : 1) Question 10. 10. Suppose we are doing a study of survival using the Kaplan-Meier method. The study

 

enrolled 10 patients at baseline, and the first death occurred after five weeks. If two patients were lost

 

to follow up before this death was recorded, how do we calculate the proportion who died at that point

 

in time? (Points : 1)

 

1/10

 

2/10

 

1/8

 

1/7 Question 11. 11. In a randomized clinical trial, patients are assigned to their treatment group: (Points :

known as: (Points : 1)

 

Type I error

 

Type II error
