INFERENTIAL STATISTICS: CASE OF SUN COAST COMPANY 26 The scale of measure for all the data variables are ratio. This is because all the difference in value is significant as well as the ratio. T-test for two comparing training results The hypothesis for this test is; H0: µ1 = µ2 Ha: µ1 ≠ µ2 t-Test: Two-Sample Assuming Unequal Variances Group A Prior Training Scores Group B Revised Training Scores Mean 69.79032258 84.77419355 Variance 122.004495 26.96456901 Observations 62 62 Hypothesized Mean Difference 0 Df 87 t Stat -9.666557191 P(T<=t) one-tail 9.69914E-16 t Critical one-tail 1.662557349 P(T<=t) two-tail 1.93983E-15 t Critical two-tail 1.987608282 T-test for difference in mean The average result for training A is 69.79, while that for B is 84.77, the critical value for two-tailed, 1.9876 is greater than the p-value for two-tailed = 1.93983E-15, this implies that there is significant difference in mean for the two samples. The p-value is also smaller than the level of significance α = 0.05, thus we reject H0 and conclude that the population mean for the training outcomes is significantly different. The revised training is superior. The two samples were drawn from normally distributed populations as indicated by the shapes of the histograms. The sample size is also large enough to be used for test since there are 62 pairs of observations. The scale of measurement for the data is ratio since they are training results. The data were drawn using random sampling technique as the run tests indicate randomness. Thus the test is valid since the assumptions are met (Xue, & Titterington, 2011).

This can also be observed from the shapes of the histograms. The histograms are bell shaped.
