 TestsGuide
 Instructions and implementations of different tests

 Calling Sequence TestsGuide() TestsGuide( dataset1, dataset2 )

Parameters

 dataset1 - list or Vector; data sample dataset2 - list or Vector; data sample

Description

 • The command TestsGuide displays an interactive interface that helps to find a suitable test for several key metrics, including mean, standard deviation, goodness of fit and independence.
 • When a suitable test is found, the TestsGuide command can apply the test to data. If the TestsGuide command is executed with one or two of the optional dataset parameters, these samples are used as the defaults for the chosen test. If the suitable test only requires one sample, the second sample is ignored.
 • The test guide has a visualization of the data for all of the tests, with the exception of ChiSquareIndependenceTest.
 • The TestsGuide tutor can be invoked by either using the command or run from the Tools > Tutors > Statistics > Tests Guide menu item.

Examples

 > $\mathrm{with}\left(\mathrm{Student}\left[\mathrm{Statistics}\right]\right):$
 > $\mathrm{TestsGuide}\left(\right)$

It is possible to supply one or two samples that are used in the application of the interactive tests:

 > $\mathrm{TestsGuide}\left(\mathrm{Vector}\left(\left[4,8,15,16,23,42\right]\right)\right)$
 > $\mathrm{TestsGuide}\left(\left[1,4,7,10\right],\left[2,10,34,50\right]\right)$
