Sampling distribution for one sample t-test
(a hypothetical plot of an infinite number of mean differences, assuming null was correct)
t (obtained) = 1.72
t (obtained) = (X – X)
difference between the two means…
…and standardizing this difference with the pooled estimate
- t critical 0 t critical
ASSUMING THE NULL!
t(obtained) = X1 – X2
