Paired-sample t-test ?


New Member
Dear All,

Does anybody have any advice on the question below?

A group of 30 individuals had to complete two different tasks. The first task required them to do same/different discrimination judgments for pairs of speech stimuli and the second task again same/different discrimination judgments but this time for music stimuli. There were 30 pairs of stimuli and the maximum achievable score was 30. The aim was to see whether our subjects would achieve higher scores on one of the two tasks. A single group of individuals was used for both tasks. Do you think that the paired-sample t-test would be appropriate? I think this is the test to use, but I need to make sure it is the one.

Many thanks in advance!
