I am a graduate researcher in the analysis phase of my research work. My research is an intervention research (n=14) trying to analyze the impact (pre and post) of the sports program. I don’t have a control group for this research. My dependent variables fall under ordinal, likert and continuous types, and my independent variable would be age and attendance. My question is, will paired t-test is suffice for this kind of data set? Does t-test work with binary variables? Is it worth running normality for binary data? Finally, kindly suggest another alternative for a data set with different type of dependent variables.

Your help and suggestions are welcomed and greatly appreciated.

Thanks and Regards

Jerrome
