Using randomization techniques to analyse behavioural data

  title={Using randomization techniques to analyse behavioural data},
  author={D. C. Adams and Carl Anthony},
Data from behavioural studies are frequently non-normally distributed and cannot be analysed with traditional parametric statistics. Instead, behaviourists must rely on rank-transformation tests, which lose potentially valuable information present in the data. Recently, however, biologists in other disciplines have resolved similar statistical difficulties by using resampling methods. Results from Kruskal–Wallis non-parametric ANOVA and randomization tests were compared for two behavioural data… CONTINUE READING
