This study illustrated the use of the Rule Space Method to diagnose students' proficiencies in, skills and knowledge of statistical hypothesis testing. Participants included 96 undergraduate and, graduate students, of whom 94 were classified into one or more of the knowledge states identified by, the rule space analysis. Analysis at the level of proficiency groups showed that the critical difference, between low and medium proficiency groups was the understanding of statistical concepts and, knowledge while the critical skill discriminating the medium proficiency group from the high, proficiency group was to mange complex computational procedures. In addition, attribute profiles of, two students showed how students with the same total score can possess different strengths and, weaknesses. (Contains 3 figures and 1 table.)
