Chapter 4 Student’s t-Test for Matched Pairs Abstract The purpose of this lesson is to use R to examine differences to a singular measured variable between pairs, specifically by using Student’s t-Test for Matched Pairs. Along with the use of Student’s t-Test to compare differences between two separate groups against a singular measured variable, Student’s t-Test can also be used to compare differences to a single measured variable when subjects are matched against a counterpart.
