Definition: In a statistical hypothesis test, the test statistic $T(Y)$ is a scalar function of the measured data $y$ whose distribution under the null hypothesis $H_0$ can be established. Together with a significance level $\alpha$, this distribution implies a critical value $t_\mathrm{crit}$ of the test statistic which determines whether the test rejects or fails to reject $H_0$.
