Step 1

The null and alternative hypothesis is given below:

From the given information, the population proportion (p) is 0.44 and the claim of the test parents attitudes toward the quality of education have changed or not.

The null hypothesis is,

H0: p = 0.44

The null hypothesis is,

Ha: p ≠0.44

Step 2

The 95​% confidence interval to assess whether this represents evidence that​ parents' attitudes toward the quality of education have changed is obtained below:
