I am looking for some literature about linear regression and students t-test to cite them in my discussion within my paper. In a nutshell: I would like to argue that I prefer using the results of a regression compared to t-tests of my individual variables. Is this an acceptable argument? Does someone know some paper about this?
My (simplyfied) Problem: I have two groups (group A and group B) solving an assessment to achieve points. Now, I would like to run a linear regression with the achieved points as dependent variable and group classification as independent variable, instead of using a t-test to compare the means of both groups.
Thanks in advance :)
