Complete the following:
 What are the most common reasons you would select a nonparametric test over the parametric alternative?
 Discuss the issue of statistical power in nonparametric tests (as compared to their parametric counterparts). Which type tends to be more powerful? Why?
 For each of the following parametric tests, identify the appropriate nonparametric counterpart:
 Dependent t test
 Independent samples t test
 Repeated measures ANOVA (onevariable)
 Oneway ANOVA (independent)
 Pearson Correlation
In this assignment, you will perform the nonparametric version of the tests you used previously. In each case, assume that you opted to use the nonparametric equivalent rather than the parametric test.
Using the data files from earlier assignments, complete the following tests and paste your results into your WORD document:
 Activity 4a: nonparametric version of the dependent t test
 Activity 4areformatted: nonparametric version of the independent t test
 Activity 4C: nonparametric version of the single factor ANOVA
