I recently had to run a series of independent samples t-tests on summary data, meaning I only had the group means, standard deviations, and sample sizes. There are online calculators available to do the job.
But my client needed more information on what was going on behind the scenes of the calculations, and I needed a record of what I did. I looked for a way to run summary t-tests in SPSS and even R, and I couldn’t find a way.
So I did what any gal with some stats knowledge and some coding experience would do.
Thanks to Todd Grande for the inspiration. I built my calculator based on his criteria. His video will walk you through it if you’d like to build one of your own. Or, you can just watch his video to see how it works. Enjoy!
