  • mean value and standard deviation for the sample;
  • a comparison value (default value is 0);
  • sample size for the sample;
  • specified significance level;
  • number of digits to display in results; and
  • whether test is one-tailed or two-tailed.

Outputs include:

  • Difference of sample mean from specified value;
  • standard error of the mean;
  • Confidence limits (based on specified significance level) for the sample mean;
  • t and P values for the difference between sample mean and the specified value and the appropriate number of degrees of freedom; and
  • a plot of the confidence limits.
