Abstract
In statistics it is important to know the method of analysing data. The study looked at parametric tests with a special focus on the three t-tests. In this paper, the researcher provide a brief review of commonly used three t-tests namely an independent sample t-test, dependent sample-test and one sample t-test. The researcher has presented the formulae for calculating an independent sample t-test, dependent sample-test and one sample t-test. Procedures have also been written in this article on how to conduct the three t-tests in SPSS. The article has also looked at the formulae for calculating the effect size and its important when conducting a study.
