How to Use?

Column Selection

  • Value Column - Numeric column whose means should be calculated.

  • Group Column (Optional) - Label column of 2 groups. Without this argument, one sample test, which compares mean with "True Effect Size" value, will be executed.

Parameters

  • Type of Alternative Hypothesis (Optional) - The default is "two.sided". What kind of alternative hypothesis to be used. This can be

    • "two.sided"

    • "less"

    • "greater"

  • True Effect Size (Optional) - The default is 0. If it's one sample test, true value of the mean. If it's two sample test, the difference in means.

  • Paired (Optional) - The default is FALSE. If it should be paired t-test, which is often used to test before values and after values are different.

  • Equal Variance (Optional) - The default is FALSE. If the variances of the two groups can be considered as equal.

  • Confidence Level (Optional) - The default is 0.95. The level of confidence interval.

  • Subset (Optional) - A vector to specify a subset of observations to be used.

  • NA Action (Optional) - The default is "na.fail". This changes the behaviour of NA data. Can be one of the following.

    • "na.omit"

    • "na.fail"

    • "na.exclude"

    • "na.pass"

    • NULL
