Abstract

This work discusses how Student's t-tests might still be validly applied to medical data that may violate the usual statistical assumptions. Here the one sample t-test, which includes as a special case the paired comparisons t-test, is treated in detail. Practical "rules-of-thumb" are given, along with their applications to various examples, so that readers will easily be able to use them on their own data sets.
