15-1 Introduction Most of the hypothesis-testing and confidence interval procedures discussed in previous chapters are based on the assumption that we are working with random samples from normal populations. These procedures are often called parametric methods In this chapter, nonparametric and distribution free methods will be discussed. We usually make no assumptions about the distribution of the underlying population.

15-2 Sign Test 15-2.1 Description of the Test
The sign test is used to test hypotheses about the median of a continuous distribution. Let R+ represent the number of differences that are positive.

15-2 Sign Test 15-2.1 Description of the Test
If the following hypotheses are being tested: The appropriate P-value is

15-2 Sign Test 15-2.1 Description of the Test
If the following hypotheses are being tested: If r+ < n/2, then the appropriate P-value is If r+ > n/2, then the appropriate P-value is

15-3 Wilcoxon Signed-Rank Test
The Wilcoxon signed-rank test applies to the case of symmetric continuous distributions. Under this assumption, the mean equals the median. The null hypothesis is H0:  = 0

15-4 Wilcoxon Rank-Sum Test
Description of the Test We wish to test the hypotheses

15-4 Wilcoxon Rank-Sum Test
Description of the Test Test procedure: Arrange all n1 + n2 observations in ascending order of magnitude and assign ranks. Let W1 be the sum of the ranks in the smaller sample. Let W2 be the sum of the ranks in the other sample. Then: W2 = [(n1 + n2)(n1 + n2 + 1)]/2 – W1
