Strategies When Population Distributions are Not Normal:

Data Transformations and

Rank-Order Tests


Assumptions in the standard hypothesis testing procedures l.jpg

Assumptions in the Standard Hypothesis-Testing Procedures

  • Populations follow a normal curve

  • Populations have equal variances

  • Ceiling and floor effects


Data transformations l.jpg

Data Transformations

  • Data transformation

  • Square-root transformation


Data transformations4 l.jpg

Data Transformations

  • Legitimacy of data transformations

  • Kinds of data transformations

    • Square root transformation

    • Log transformation

    • Inverse transformation

    • Arcsine transformation


Rank order tests l.jpg

Rank-Order Tests

  • Rank-order transformation

  • Rank-order tests

  • Nonparametric tests

  • Parametric tests


Rank order tests6 l.jpg

Rank-Order Tests

  • Basic logic

  • The null hypothesis

  • Normal curve approximations

  • Using parametric tests with rank-transformed data


Comparison of methods l.jpg

Comparison of Methods

  • Advantages and disadvantages

  • Relative risk of Type I and Type II errors


Controversies and recent development l.jpg

Controversies and Recent Development

  • Computer-intensive methods

    • Randomization tests

    • Proposed alternative to parametric and nonparametric methods

    • Widely applicable

    • Unfamiliar to researchers


Reporting in research articles l.jpg

Reporting in Research Articles

  • Data transformations

    • Described just prior to analyses using them

  • Rank-order methods

    • Described much like any other kind of hypothesis test
