Durbin test and multiple comparison of treatments

Description

A multiple comparison of the Durbin test for the balanced incomplete blocks for sensorial or categorical evaluation. It forms groups according to the demanded ones for level of significance (alpha); by default, 0.05.

Usage

durbin.test(judge, trt, evaluation, alpha = 0.05, group =TRUE, 
main = NULL, console=FALSE)

Arguments

judge

Identification of the judge in the evaluation
