One Sample t-test Calculator

One Sample t-test measures whether the population mean is statistically significantly different from a hypothesized value. For example : Doctors recommend to have low cholesterol level - ideal cholesterol level should be below 200. With the use of one-sample t-test we can examine if the average cholestrol level of the population is statistically different from 200.

$$t = \frac{\bar{x}-\mu{}_{0}}{s_{\bar{x}}}$$

where

$$s_{\bar{x}} = \frac{s}{\sqrt{n}}$$

$\mu_{0}$ : Hypothesized value
$\bar{x}$ : Sample mean
$n$ : Sample size
$s$ : Sample standard deviation
$s_{\bar{x}}$ : Estimated standard error of the mean

In the calculation below you have two options - either to enter raw data or you can enter summary information which is required to calculate one sample t-test. Under raw data tab, you can enter values separated by comma, space, tab spaces or new line.

$$s_{\bar{x}} = \frac{s}{\sqrt{n}}$$

Assumptions of One Sample t-test

• Data must be normally distributed
• Sample must be picked randomly from population
• Data must be continuous
