In situations where two independent samples are drawn from different populations or where paired samples are available, such as in a before-after scenario, two-sample and paired T-tests are needed, respectively. Use this course to explore how two-sample T-tests can be used to test the null hypothesis that two independent samples have drawn from populations with equal means. You'll examine type I and type II errors and the use of paired samples T-tests. By the time you finish this course, you will be able to test whether two samples - either drawn independently or explicitly linked - are drawn from populations with equal means.
