This manual is loaded with completed examples and screenshots in Excel of all the above of nonparametric tests being performed. The instructions are clear and easy-to-follow but at the graduate level. Nothing but simple explanations all taught in small-bite-size lessons. The emphasis is on problem solving, not on useless, complicated, hard-to-apply theory that fills many statistics course. If you are currently taking a difficult graduate-level statistics course that covers nonparametric or normality tests, you will find this manual to be an outstanding course supplement that will explain nonparametric tests much more clearly than your textbook does. Every lesson uses Excel. Youll be glad to know that youll never have to look up anything on statistical charts ever again. The easy-to-follow frameworks in this manual can be cleanly and swiftly duplicated in the real world and on statistics exams by hand (without Excel) right away. If you are a business manager, you will really appreciate how easily and clearly this manual will show you how you can perform nonparametric tests in Excel to solve difficult statistical problems on your job. You already know Excel so no new software is necessary. You dont need SPSS, SAS, SyStat, or Minitab (all of those are expensive, require lots of user training, and expect the user to be an expert statistician right from the start. Not Excel nor this book. This manual achieves two goals: teaching graduate-level nonparametric testing statistical frameworks in an easy-to-understand, real-world, practical way and then showing how to implement all of it in Excel. Nonparametric tests are very important statistical tests in business, but are not widely understood. Nonparametric testing must nearly always be performed in place of most well-known statistics tests when it is not known that samples are being taken from a normally distributed population. This is more often the case than not, yet not many people have a working knowledge of nonparametric testing. You will. This manual will make you an Excel Statistical Master of nonparametric testing.
