 Czech term or phrase: parametrický t-test, neparametrický t-test This appears in the key to a table (comparison of paired groups): *parametrický t-test, **neparametrický t-test, ***chí-kvadrát test nezávislosti… This may be a rather basic question, but is it possible to talk about a 'nonparametric t-test'? Or is a t-test by definition parametric? (This also underlies the question I posted yesterday).

 Thank you. My difficulty here was that I couldn't find any references in English to 'non-parametric t-tests'. But I suppose statisticians know what they're talking about!3 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer

 Asker: In your link, I find "a non-parametric alternative to the t-test". Doesn't this imply that a t-test has to be parametric?

neutral  Sarka Lhotak: IMO, t-test has to be parametric. However, this is a problem of the author of the source, may be they used the "non-parametric alternative"?
