Description

Generates a sectioned report file with ordinal dominance matrices and statistics.

Usage

2
orddom_p(x,y,alpha=.05,paired=FALSE,sections="1234a4b5a5b",header="Y",sorted="XY",
       outfile="orddom_csv_tab.txt",appendfile=FALSE,show=1,description="")

Arguments

x

A 1-column matrix with optional column name containing all n_x values or scores of group X or 1 (e.g. control or pretest group.); see orddom for details.

y

A 1-column matrix with optional column name containing all n_y values of group Y or 2 (e.g. experimental or post-test group); see orddom for details.

alpha

Significance or α-level used for the calculation of the confidence intervals; see orddom for details.

paired

By default, independence of the two groups or data sets is assumed. For paired comparisons, set to TRUE; see orddom for details.

sections

By default all of the following report sections are written to the file. If only a selection of all sections is needed, a string should be given containing all section numbers needed in the output, e.g. ...,sections="135a",... for sections 1, 3 and 5a.
The following sections are available for output:
"1" - Raw data of the x and y data sets
"2" - Metric descriptives for x and y
"3" - Metric difference tests
"4a" - Metric difference matrix with x in rows and y in columns
"4b" - Metric difference matrix with y in rows and x in columns
"5a" - Ordinal dominance matrix with x in rows and y in columns
"5b" - Ordinal dominance matrix with y in rows and x in columns

header

By default, section headers are part of the output. If headers are to be omitted, this argument should be set to FALSE.

sorted

All outputs in sections 1,4a,4b,5a and 5b may be automatically sorted ascendingly for the x data set (string is to contain "X") and/or for the y data set (string is to contain "Y"). This is the default option.

outfile

A filename for the report should be given here. The report as standard text file is written to the current working directory.

appendfile

By default, new report files are created. If a given report file ist to be appended, set to TRUE.

show

By default, the generated file is displayed. Set to FALSE to avoid the resulting file to be shown.

description

This argument allows for assigning a string (as title or description) for the ordinal comparison outputs.
