The focus this week’s forum is independent samples t-tests.
The article link below is titled “Effectiveness of External Cold and Vibration for Procedural Pain Relief During Peripheral Intravenous Cannulation in Pediatric Patients” contains reports of several independent samples t-tests.

Please note whether you believe the independent samples t-tests were used appropriately. Were assumptions met? What were the strengths and weaknesses of the article? Do you believe the limitations listed were accurate?
This forum will end on Sunday of Week 4.
