I have studied 3 similar methods for testing hypotheses about population means -- a 1-sample test, and 2 versions of a 2-sample test (independent samples, and dependent samples).
What are the key conceptual differences between these 3 methods? In other words, under what conditions do we choose each method for our analysis, and why?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 6:31 pm ad1c9bdddf
1-sample test is used if we only have one sample, and want to test whether our guess is verified by this sample.
Independent sample test is used when the two sample are selected independently, ...
Differences in 3 hypotheses tests are explained.
