Variance Variance is one of the two ways to describe how far away your data is from the mean. This formula is the way to calculate variance. the sum = the mean of the data X = each data value n = the number of values
Standard Deviation Standard Deviation also shows how spread out the data are.
Theoretical Distribution Curve Theoretical Distribution Curve (TDC) is an ideal picture of a distribution based upon random sampling.
T-Test The t-test equation tests if there is a significant difference between the means of two independent samples. The t-test is calculated by the t- statistic. The formula for the t – statistic is on the bottom of this slide. Key X1=mean of the first group X2=mean of the second group n1=number of _ in the first group n2 =number of _ in the second group p
