calculateGUI: A graphical user interface for the package rankFD


This function provides a graphical user interface for calculating rank-based statistical tests in general factorial designs.




The function produces a GUI for the calculation of the test statistics and for plotting. Data can be loaded via the "load data" button. The formula and the significance level alpha (default: 0.05) need to be specified. One can choose between two different null hypotheses (H_0^F and H_0^p, see the details to rankFD) to be tested as well as weighted or unweighted effects as discussed in Brunner et al. (2016) (r_i and p_i in their notation). If the plot option is chosen, an additional window opens containing information on the plots.
