qvSDDT {DunnettTests}R Documentation

To calculate adjusted P-values (Q-values) for step-down Dunnett test procedure

Description

In multiple testing problem, the adjusted P-values correspond to test statistics can be used with any fixed alpha to dertermine which hypotheses to be rejected.

Usage

qvSDDT(teststats,alternative="U",df=Inf,corr = 0.5,corr.matrix = NA)

Arguments

teststats

The k-vector of test statistics, k≥ 2.

alternative

The alternative hypothesis: "U"=upper one-sided test (default); "L"=lower one-sided test; "B"=two-sided test. For lower one-sided tail test, use the negations of each of the test statistics.

df

Degree of freedom of the t-test statistics. When (approximately) normally distributed test statistics are applied, set df=Inf (default).

corr

Specified for equally correlated test statistics, which is the common correlation between the test statistics, default=0.5.

corr.matrix

Specified for unequally correlated test statistics, which is the correlation matrix of the test statistics, default=NA.

Value

Return a LIST containing:

"ordered test statistics"

ordered test statistics from largest to smallest

"Adjusted P-values of ordered test statistics"

adjusted P-values correspond to the ordered test statistics
