  The z-test calculates a value of z which can be compared to Table A.
  The z-test provides a way to evaluate how individuals compare to a population.
  The z-test is based on how individual scores compare to a sample mean.

A one-sample t value is statistically significant in which situation? (Points : 1)

  The calculated t is equal to or larger than the table value.
  The calculated t is equal to or smaller than the table value.
  The calculated t is equal to or smaller than .05.
  The calculated t is equal to or larger than .05.

What advantage does the one-sample t offer over the z-test? (Points : 1)

  The one sample t requires no parameter standard error of the mean.
  The one sample t requires no parameter mean.
