Parametric Test Procedures
1. Involve Population Parameters
Example: Population Mean
2. Require Interval Scale or Ratio Scale
Whole Numbers or Fractions
Example: Height in Inches (72, 60.5, 54.7)
3. Have Stringent Assumptions
Example: Normal Distribution
4. Examples: Z Test, t Test, _
2
Test
Nonparametric Test Procedures
1. Do Not Involve Population Parameters
Example: Probability Distributions, Independence
2. Data Measured on Any Scale
Ratio or Interval
Ordinal
Example: Good-Better-Best
Nominal
Example: Male-Female
3. Example: Wilcoxon Rank Sum Test
1. Used With All Scales
2. Easier to Compute
Developed Originally Before Wide
Computer Use
3. Make Fewer Assumptions
4. Need Not Involve
Population Parameters
5. Results May Be as Exact as
Parametric Procedures

Sign Test
Sign Test
1. Tests One Population Median, q (eta)
2. Corresponds to t-Test for 1 Mean
3. Assumes Population Is Continuous
4. Small Sample Test Statistic: # Sample
Values Above (or Below) Median
Alternative Hypothesis Determines
5. Can Use Normal Approximation If n > 10
Sign Test Uses P-Value
to Make Decision
Binomial: n = 8 p = 0.5
P-Value Is the Probability of Getting an Observation At
Least as Extreme as We Got. If 7 of 8 Observations
Favor H
a
, Then P-Value = P(x > 7) = .031 + .004 = .035.
If o = .05, Then Reject H
0
Since P-Value s o.
Sign Test Example
Youre an analyst for Chef-
7 people to rate a new
ravioli on a 5-point Likert
scale (1 = terrible to
5 = excellent. The ratings
are: 2 5 3 4 1 4 5.
At the .05 level, is there
evidence that the median
rating is less than 3?
Sign Test Solution
H0: q = 3
Ha: q < 3
o = .05
Test Statistic:
P-Value:
Decision:

Conclusion:

Do Not Reject at o = .05
There Is No Evidence
Median Is Less Than 3
P(x > 2) = 1 - P(x s 1)
= .937
(Binomial Table, n = 7,
p = 0.50)
S = 2
(Ratings 1 & 2 Are
Less Than q = 3:

see if the operating rates for 2 factories is
the same. For factory 1, the rates (% of
capacity) are 71, 82, 77, 92, 88. For
factory 2, the rates are 85, 82,
94 & 97. Do the factory rates
have the same probability
