Data that conform to a pattern of distribution are known as “parametric data.” Since the data have a perceivable pattern, the researcher can make certain assumptions about them.
Not all data conform to a pattern, though, and statistics designed for use with those data are known as being “non-parametric.” While they do not come with the assumptions required by parametric tests, they often are not as powerful—having an increased risk of type 2 error—thus they require larger sample sizes.
For this Discussion, you assess the appropriate use of a non-parametric test in research.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post the title of the article . Explain whether the non-parametric test used in the study was appropriate and why. Then, suggest one alternative test that could have been used in the study. Justify the use of the alternative test.
