T Distribution , Kolmogrov Smirnov, Shapiro Wilk Tests

In a previous tutorial we looked at key concepts in statistical inference. We’ll now look at T Distribution , Kolmogrov Smirnov, Shapiro Wilk, and standard parametric tests. Parametric tests are tests that make assumptions about the parameters of the population distribution from which a sample is drawn. We’ll begin with normality assessment using the Quantile-Quantile Plot (also called the Q-Q plot), the Shapiro-Wilk test and the Kolmogrov Smirnov test. Then, we’ll cover T distribution briefly. Finally, the one sample t-test, which is a standard parametric test will be looked in detail.
