Independent sample t-tests are used to measure the statistical significance of the relationship between variables when the study meets these criteria: "the independent variable has only two values, the design is between groups, and the dependent variable is normal/scale data." Sample size influences the t value used to measure statistical significance, so small samples require a larger t to be significant.

Independent variables are those which researchers believe causes an outcome on another variable, the dependent variable. In experimental research, the independent variable is manipulated by the researcher and applied to the subject or subject group to measure the effect of the independent variable on the dependent variable. In nonexperimental research, the independent variable is the variable which, although not manipulatable, is the variable from which causal inference is implied.
