    Best alternative test for F test and t test for two independent sample population?




    Hi,
    We use F-test and T- test for our research purposes. i would like to know more effective and efficient hypothesis test methods for validation of test results from two different independent sample population.

    For comparing two group means, if the assumptions underlying a t-test are met, I believe the t-test (equivalent to a one-way ANOVA with 2 groups) is the optimal and most powerful test. I'm not sure what you are looking for.

    If the assumptions are not met, you can try a transformation, a rank test, or some specialized technique. Or maybe Monte-Carlo.

    If this doesn't help, can you explain a bit further?
