independent-sample T Test

data structure :

group 1 2
subjects 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
data 0.3 0.4 0.5 0.6 0.4 0.3 0.2 0.1 0.2 0.3 0.4 0.5 0.6 0.5 0.4 0.3

it means subject are independent , you record the data from every subject with the same measurements under different condition.

here we should use  indepensampleT in FT

 

dependent sample T Test

data structure :

subjects 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Pre 0.3 0.4 0.5 0.6 0.4 0.3 0.2 0.1
Post 0.4 0.5 0.6 0.3 0.2 0.1 0 -0.1

we call  this  paired samples T test,  you could check that the data pre and post come from the same subject under differetn measure

here we should use  depensampleT in FT

 

Anova

The one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) is used to determine whether there are any statistically significant differences between the means of three or more independent (unrelated) groups.

For example, a researcher wishes to know whether different pacing strategies affect the time to complete a marathon. The researcher randomly assigns a group of volunteers to either a group that (a) starts slow and then increases their speed, (b) starts fast and slows down or (c) runs at a steady pace throughout. The time to complete the marathon is the outcome (dependent) variable.
