a parametric inferential test for comparing sample means of two independent groups of scores.

standard error of the difference between means
standard deviation of the sampling distribution of differences between the means of independent samples in a twosample experiment.

effect size
the proportion of variance in the dependent variable that is accounted for by the manipulation of the independent variable.

cohen's d
an inferential statistic for measuring effect size.

correlatedgroups t test
parametric infrential test used to compare the means of two related (within or matchedsubjects) samples.

difference scores
scores representing the difference between subjects' performance in one condition and their performance in a second condition.

standard error of the difference scores
the standard deviation of the sampling distributio of mean differences between dependent samples in a twogroup experiment.
