SIGNIFICANT TESTS
A fter any experiment we get some results, but we are not sure
about this result whether the result occurred by chance or a real
diﬀerence. That time to ﬁnd truth we will use some statistical tests,
these tests are termed as, ‘Tests of Signiﬁcance’.
Selection of Statistical Tests:
The selection of the appropriate statistical test is depends upon:
1) The scale of measurement e.g. Ratio, Interval.
2) The number of groups e.g. One, Two or More.
3) Sample size e.g. If the sample size is less than 30. Students ‘t’ test
is to be used.
4) Measurements e.g. Repeated or Independent measurements.
Selection of Test of Signiﬁcance:
Scale Two groups Three/More groups
Independent Repeated Independent Repeated
Interval Z test Z test ANOVA test ANOVA
and Ratio t test t test (F test) (F test)
Ordinal Median test Wilcox an Median Friedman
Mann test Kruscal test test

Nominal X2 test Me Nemar Chi–Square Cochron’s

For application of test sample should be selected randomly.

There are two types of tests:
1) Parametric Tests
2) Non – Parametric Tests
1. Parametric Test:
When quantitative data like Weight, Length, Height, and Percentage
is given it is used. These tests were based on the assumption that
samples were drawn from the normally distributed populations.
E.g. Students t test, Z test etc.
2. Non – Parametric Test:
When qualitative data like Health, Cure rate, Intelligence, Color is
given it is used. Here observations are classiﬁed into a particular
category or groups.
E.g. Chi square (x2 ) test, Median tests etc.
I) T – Test:
W.S. Gosset investigated this test in 1908. It is called Student t –
Test because the pen name of Dr. Gosset was student, hence this test
is known as student’s t – test. It is also called as ‘t- ratio’ because it
is a ratio of diﬀerence between two means.
Aylmer Fisher (1890–1962) developed students ‘t’ test where sam-
ples are drawn from normal population and are randomly selected.
After comparing the calculated value of ‘t’ with the value given
in the ‘t’ table considering degree of freedom we can ascertain its
signiﬁcance.

N 8 2.8284
∴ S.E. = 0.3272
D 1.0375
∴t= = = 3.1708
SED 0.3272
Here, the calculated value for ‘t’ exceeds the tabulated ‘t’ value
at p = 0.05 level with 7df. Therefore the glucose concentration by the
patients after treatment is not signiﬁcant.
Utility:
It is widely used in the ﬁeld of Medical science, Agriculture and
Veterinary as follows:
r To compare the results of two drugs which is given to same
individuals in the sample at two diﬀerent situations? E.g. Eﬀect
of Bryonia and Lycopodium on general symptoms like sleep,
appetite etc.
r It is used to study of drug speciﬁcity on a particular organ /
tissue / cell level. E.g. Eﬀect of Belberis Vulg. on renal system.
r It is used to compare results of two diﬀerent methods. E.g.
Estimation of Hb% by Sahlis method and Tallquist method.
r To compare observations made at two diﬀerent sites of the same
body. E.g. compare blood pressure of arm and thigh.
r To study the accuracy of two diﬀerent instruments like Ther-
mometer, B.P apparatus etc.
r To accept the Null Hypothesis that is no diﬀerence between the
two means.
r To reject the hypothesis that is the diﬀerence between the means
of the two samples is statistically signiﬁcant.
F – Test:
A statistician R.A. Fisher introduces it. That is why it is also called
as Fisher’s test (F – test) test.

Here, two variances are derived from two samples. The values in
each group are to be normally distributed. Therefore the variation of
each value around its group mean that is error is remain independent
of each value provided the variances within each group should be
equal for all groups.
Calculation for F Test:
Tests of hypothesis about the variance of two populations:-
Steps:-
1) Null hypothesis should be H0 = 61 2 = 62 2 and Alternative hypo-
thesis H0 = 61 2 = 62 2 (two tailed test)
2) Calculation of F test statistic:-
61 2
F= if, 61 2 ≥ 62 2
62 2
OR
62 2
F= if, 62 2 ≥ 61 2
61 2
3) Take the level of signiﬁcance α = 0.05
If α is not known.
Rules for Signiﬁcance:
1) If calculated F < tabled Fα2 then accept H0 .
2) If, calculated F > tabled Fα2 then reject H0 .

Steps for One Tailed Test:
1. Set the Null Hypothesis (H0 ): 61 2 > 62 2 in such a way that
the rejection appeases in the upper tail by numbering the population
variance.
Format: H0 : 62 2 < 61 2
If, H0 is of the form 61 2 < 62 2 then we calculate F = 61 2 /62 2 which
has F – distribution but with n2 − 1 d.f. in the numerator and n − 1
d.f. in the denominator.
2. Calculation of test statistics:
61 2
∴ F statistics =
62 2
3. Set the level of signiﬁcance α= 0.05 if value of α is not
known to us.
4. Rules for Signiﬁcance:
If calculated F α table F2 α then accept the null hypothesis H0 and
reject H0 if calculated F > table Fα.
Example:
1) Random samples are drawn from the two sets of students and the
following results were obtained.
Sample A: 10, 12, 18, 14, 16, 20.
Sample B: 14, 16, 20, 18, 21, 22.
Find the variance of two populations and test whether the two
samples have same variance.
Solution: Null hypothesis H0 = 6A 2 = 6B 2 that is the two samples
have the same variance.
Alternative hypothesis H0: 6A 2 = 6B 2 (Two tailed test)

Rule of Signiﬁcance:
1) If, the calculated value of ‘t’ is higher than the value given at
P = 0.05 (5% level) in the table it is signiﬁcant.
2) If the calculated value of ‘t’ is less than the value given in ‘t’ table
it is not signiﬁcant.
Degree of Freedom:
It is the quantity in a series which is one less than the independent
number of observations in a sample is called – Degree of freedom.
E.g. In unpaired t test df = N − 1 and in paired t test df =
N1 + N2 − 2 (Where, N1 and N2 are the number of observations.)
There are two types of t – test:
a) Unpaired t – Test.
b) Paired t – Test.

Here, calculated value of ‘t’ is less than the given value in t table
hence the diﬀerence between the two means is signiﬁcant.
E.g. 2) The weight of an untreated group of six persons are 60kg,
40kg, 45kg, 50kg, 65kg, 70kg. The weight of another group persons
from the same population other treatment with Phytolacca drug was
obtained as, 45kg, 35kg, 40kg, 45kg, 60kg, 65kg and 45 kg. Apply t

Is the testing reliable?
Solution:
Ho; µD = 0
Here, the testing will be reliable if the mean diﬀerence between
the results from the two-research centers does not diﬀer signiﬁcantly
form zero. So we assume the hypothesis that the observed diﬀerences
are the random observations from a population with mean zero.

Since the observed value of the t = (− 0.340) is less then the value
of t at 5% level of signiﬁcance for 3 df. So it is non signiﬁcant. Hence
the hypothesis will be accepted that is the testing is reliable.

Conclusion:

∴ The two samples have the same variance.

We have following formula,

Where the ratio is directly proportional to its signiﬁcance. E.g.

II] Non Parametric Tests:
1. Chi–Square Test (x2 ):
It is one of the non – parametric tests where qualitative data is
considered. It is used to test the signiﬁcance of overall deviation
between the Observed and Expected frequencies. Chi-square is derived
from the Greek letter – Chi-x.
Prof. A.R. Fisher developed this test in 1870. It was Karl Pearson
who improved Fisher’s Chi-square test in its latest form in 1900.
It is the test of signiﬁcance of overall deviation square in the
observed and expected frequencies divided by expected frequencies.

x2 =

(fo − fe)2
x2 =

Where, O or fo = Observed frequency.
E or fe = Expected frequency.
N = Total number of observations.
Rules for Signiﬁcance:
1) If the tabular value is lower than the calculated value then the
results are signiﬁcant.

2) If fo = fe then the value of x2 will be zero (but due to chance error
this never happens).
Example:
1) There are two factors showing dominance X and Y. Suppose in A
the progeny were in the ratio of XY = 436, Xy = 122, xY = 120
and xy = 64 out of 646 individuals.
Test the hypothesis that an ‘A’ gives 6: 2: 2: 1 isolation.

Expected = 646 × = 58.7272

(O − E) = 5.2728
(O − E)2 27.8024

E 58.7272
Now, using the formula,
(O − E)2
X2 =
E
= 19.85 + 0.1762 + 0.05536 + 0.4734
= 20.554
In all such cases degree of freedom (df) will be n = k – 1 (where
k is the number of classes).
Thus we have in this case degree of freedom ‘n’ = 4 – 1 = 3 Now,
table value of x2 is 7.815 t 0.05 for 3 degree of freedom, which is much
less than the obtained value that is 20.554
So we reject the hypothesis of 6 : 2 : 2 : 1 in this case
