I come across the following while reading the literature. I don't understand the meaning of it, particularly t(some number).

"For both accuracy and outcome instrumentality, the group membership variable was significant, t(75)=2.75, p<0.1, and t(75)=3.22, p< 0.01 respectively."

Is it t-statistic?

Yeah looks like this is t stat with df in the little brackets

You dont see this too often but i like it cuz it lets you know the sample size (add 2 to whatever is in the brackets).
It is used in APA style writing. Maybe others too. I like it also because it lets you know what test is being run. If you saw t(73.2), you may suspect a Welch t. It's also used for other tests like F(2,48).
