    • Two Sample Proportion
    • Paired t
  2. Provide the summary statistics required to run your test.
    Note For one-sample procedures, you can choose a dataset variable if the correct variable type exists in your selected dataset.

    If the selected variable is categorical, set Success Group to the outcome defined to be the successful outcome.

  3. To run a hypothesis test:
    1. Select Hypothesis Test.
    2. Select the type of Alternative Hypothesis to use.
    3. Optional: For two sample t calculations, select Assume Equal Variances only if you are assuming equal variances for the pooled t procedure.
    4. Click Generate Results.
  4. To run a confidence interval:
    1. Select Confidence Interval.
    2. Set the Confidence Interval value.
    3. Optional: For two sample t calculations, select Assume Equal Variances only if you have pooled variances.
    4. Click Generate Results.

The test data are displayed.

If needed, click beside a variable to clear it.
