Example of a rating scale for item #12 for introductory biology 101 (practical example)
Suppose you collect these ratings and determine (using your new Excel skills)
that the 52 men in this course had a mean rating of 55 with a standard deviation of
7, while the 57 women in this course had a mean rating of 64 with a standard
deviation of 13.
Note that the two-group t-test does not require that both groups have the same
sample size. This is another way of saying that the two-group t-test is ‘‘robust’’
(a fancy term that statisticians like to use).
Your data then produce the following table in Fig. 5.8 :

Now, widen column B so that it is twice as wide as column A, and center the six
numbers and their labels in your table (see Fig. 5.9 )
