Suppose the conditions are not met for a confidence interval.
When conditions are not met, then
The confidence level in the interval must be lowered.
The width of the confidence interval must be raised.
The results may not be able to be generalized to the population.
The margin of error of the confidence interval will increase.
The critical value $t^*$ or $z^*$ will need to increase.
