Question

Would you use a paired t-test or an unpaired t-test to analyze the difference between observed means of sprinting speeds between football players and swimmers? Explain your answer.

Answer #1

We will use unpaired T-test in this instance.

Reason :-

Paired T-Test is done when the test subject are same and we are calculating the differences between means of two different experiment on the two related groups. In paired T test, the test subject are same but measurements are taken at two different times, i.e, After and before the experiment. So it is paired observation made about the same subjects.

Meanwhile Unpaired T test is used to measure the differences and the significance in it, if any in between two unrelated groups. Both the groups are provided the same scenario and the mean of both the groups is subjected to the T test.

In the scenario given above, the test sample are two different groups, i.e, Swimmers and Football players while the experiment is one.

Thus it will be unpaired T test.

What is the difference between a One sample
t-test, Unpooled t-test, Pooled
t-test, Paired t-test, and Mann
Whitney U test? How do you know when to use each test?

What is the difference between a t test of independent means and
a t test of dependent means? Provide examples of when you would use
each type of t test.

The t-test paired scores go like that:
t = 8.812, df = 46, p-value = 0.00000000001936
CI (95%): 3.677283 & 5.854632
The mean of the differences: 4.765957
Decide whether statements below are true and explain why:
1) Classical hypothesis testing would recognize a significant
difference here
2) Because the estimates of means are different, with 95% there is
a difference between the means in the (imaginary) population,
3)The confidence interval includes 0, so it’s possible that
there is no real...

What statistical analysis type would you use for the following
data (2 sampled unpaired t test, 1 sample z test, logistic
regression, etc).
Do an analysis of the multitasking activity from the ClassData
sheet: comparing the time to type or write abcd…z and 123…26 to the
time for 1a2b3c…26z.

What is the difference between a t test for independent
samples and a t test for related (dependent) samples?
Give an example of when you would use each?

T/f- the difference between the observed and expected frequencies
forms the basis for chi-square test

Paired T confidence interval:
μD = μ1 - μ2 : Mean of the
difference between Male Population and Female Population
90% confidence interval results:
Difference
Mean
Std. Err.
DF
L. Limit
U. Limit
Male Population - Female Population
-4443.9378
721.71083
594
-5632.9008
-3254.9748
Why is the above data paired? Interpret and state your
confidence Interval, and based on your confidence interval is there
a significant difference in male and female populations; if so what
is it and how do you...

In your own words, tell me the difference between using the z
test and the t test for testing the difference between 2 means.

Explain the differences between a research design that utilizes
an independent measures t-test to analyze the data, and a repeated
measures t-test to analyze the data.

Which type of hypothesis test would we use to analyze data from
the following scenarios? Why? (Choose from paired t-test, 2-sample
t-test, ANOVA, or Chi-square test)
A researcher wants to know if there is an association of gender
(male, female) and eye color (brown, blue, grey, green). Which test
would he use to determine if gender and eye color are independent
in his data set?
A business owner wants to determine if her seminar is effective
in training new employees....
