SWTest: Shapiro-Wilk Test

Description Usage Arguments Details Value References Examples

View source: R/normal_Tests.R

Description

This function is a wrapper for shapiro.test() from the stats package. Options added include an ability to toggle a Bonferonni correction for significance, a corresponding significance flag, and reorganized output to facilitate integration with the Rita package.

Usage

1
SWTest(data, alpha = 0.05, j = 1, warn = T)

Arguments

data

Data of a univariate distribution for which the test statistic is computed (vector)

alpha

The two-sided decision threshold used for hypothesis-testing

j

The # hypotheses tested; used to compute a Bonferonni correction, if applicable; should remain at its default if multiple testing is not an issue (scalar)

warn

Used for printing a warning message when resampling is performed on sample-sizes > 5000 or when testing is terminated for N < 3 (boolean)

Details

Note that when the sample-size of the input vector is > 5000, resampling with replacement is used to proceed with hypothesis-testing with a vector of 5000 elements. When N < 3, testing is terminated.

Value

An object including the test statistic, p-value, and a significance flag (list)
