Example: A study was conducted to see if a new therapeutic procedure is more effective than the standard treatment in improving the digital dexterity of certain handicapped persons. Twenty-four pairs of twins were used in the study, one of the twins was randomly assigned to receive the new treatment, while the other received the standard therapy. At the end of the experimental period each individual was given a digital dexterity test with scores as follows. 2

Since The variable concerning digital dexterity test scores is continuous The sample size is greater than 10 digital dexterity test score is normally distributed There are two groups and they are dependent Paired sample t-test 3

Example: To test whether the weight-reducing diet is effective, 9 persons were selected. These persons stayed on a diet for two months and their weights were measured before and after diet.

Example: NK cell activity was measured for three groups of subjects: those who had low, medium, and high scores on Social Readjustment Rating Scale. The original observations, sample sizes, means and standard deviations are given in table. Is the mean NK cell activity different in three groups?

The variable concerning NK cell activity measures is continuous. There are three groups. Variances are equal in three groups. NK cell activity values in each group are normally distributed. The sample size of each group is greater than 10 One-Way ANOVA
