Agresti-Pendergrast test

Description

Provides a more powerful alternative to Friedman's test for blocked (dependent) data with a single replicate.

Usage

AP.test(Y)

Arguments

Y

A matrix with treatments in columns and blocks (e.g. subjects) in rows.

Details

The Agresti-Pendergrast test is more powerful than Friedman's test, given normality, and remains powerful in heavier tailed distributions (Wilcox 2005).

Value

Note

code based on Wilcox (2005).
