Your principal knows you are a graduate student and

Statistics: t-test for two independent samples

1. One sample has SS= 35 and the second sample has SS=45. a) assume that n=6 for both, calculate the sample variance, and the pooled variance. b) assume that n=6 for one and n=16 for the other, calculate the two sample variances and the pooled variance. 2. A sample of n=10 people receive medication with pain tolerance and

T- test using ANOVA

I don't think I would use an anova because I don't have two levels on conditions or two independent variables. I think I would need to use the t-test then. I could divide the employees into two equal groups and compare the means of the two groups. So, my question would be, what would your independent variables be? Employee

The difference between t-tests and z-tests

In drawing an inference using a single mean in hypothesis testing, you often have a choice between doing a z-test or a t-test. Many researchers will always choose to do the t-test even under circumstances where the z-test would work as well. Explain why the t-test was developed and why it is preferred.
