Hypothesis Testing for Two Means The population mean for the comparison group, μ 0 , is, like σ 2 , often an unknown quantity that must be estimated using sample data Independent samples t Test - Compares the means from two independent samples of subjects exposed to different experimental conditions (e.g., placebo and drug groups in a between-subjects design) 1

Independent Samples t Test Conditions and assumptions: Unknown population means μ 1 and μ 2 Equal and unknown variance for both populations, σ 2 Sampling distributions for the two means are approximately normal, owing to either normally distributed parent populations or large enough sample sizes ( n 10 for each group) 2

The Test Statistic 1 - μ 2 ) hyp represents the difference between the population means for the two groups under H 0 X 1 and X 2 are the sample means for groups 1 and 2 s X 1 - X 2 is the estimate of the standard error for the sampling distribution of the difference between the sample means for the two groups t = [ (X 1 - X 2 ) - (μ 1 - μ 2 ) hyp ] /s X 1 - X 2 3

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
