Abstract

Objectives: We examined the test properties about mean and mean differences, sampling distributions properties of mean and standard deviation, especially when the sample size is lower than 10 and the variable has normal distribution in population. In addition, we aimed to construct a 95% bootstrap confidence interval for skewness and kurtosis values in various samples sizes.
