Please provide more information.
1. Is it a two-group (or more) pre-post design?
2. What kind of analysis are you intending to do? ANCOVA?
3. It's not clear what you mean when you say "the means of the tests are not
significant". If you are doing ANCOVA, do you mean the F-test for Group
should not be statistically significant?
4. What are the sample sizes? (The answer to this has a bearing on Q3,
assuming you did mean you want the F-test for group to be non-significant.)
5. What is the correlation between pre- and post-test scores?
The following links might be useful:
