Contributers: Laila Poisson and Gail Smythe

Welcome! Please follow the instructions provided below..

  1. Enter your data in the space provided here for data input. First line in each window must be a label; for example, X in the one window and Y in the other window.
  2. Press enter between each data value so that there is only one value per line.
    • X-Data Input                   Y-Data Input
                                
    Note: It is not necessary that your data sets have equal sample sizes.
  3. The null hypothesis is "the difference of means is equal to zero." Choose the alternative hypothesis you wish to use.
  4. Indicate the confidence level you wish to use for testing and for the confidence interval. Enter this value as a decimal value.
  5. This program assumes that the variances of the two data sets are equal. It will therefore use a pooled variance estimate. You may wish to veiw comparative plots of your data so that you can visually check that the variances are equal. Choose all of the comparative plots that you wish to have displayed.
  6. Comparative Dotplots
    Comparative Boxplots
    Q-Q Plot (with the x = y line included)

It is required that you enter both an "x" data set and a "y" data set. Also, you must choose an alternative hypothesis and a confidence level. Please check that you have done these things before submitting.
