INSTRUCTIONS

First there are instructions for the D statistic spreadsheet and lower on the page are the instructions for the Chi-Sqaure spreadsheet. They are very similiar. If you are really bold, you can try to make a graph of your tables. No instructions for that though, you are on your own.

Procedure for D Statistic:

1. Look at the number in the cell next to the D-Stat cell. That is a randomly generated D statistic. In the example below that number is .72.

2. Place a 1 in the cell in the column frequency which corresponds to the range which fits the D stat number. In the example that would be in the cell next to interval 8 because .72 falls between .71 and .8.


3. After putting a one in that cell, move the cursor up or down one cell.
You should see the D-Stat cell change to a new number.

4. Increment the frequency of the cell that the new D-stat corresponds to. So if the cell has a 0 in it make it a 1. If it has a 5 in it make it a 6.

5. Keep doing this until the number at the bottom of the frequency column (the total number of random D-stats) is 50 or so. You could do more if you want.

6. Now you can compare your D-stat to the ones the table of randomly generated ones here.

Procedure for Chi-Square: (very similar)

1. Look at the number at the bottom of the Diff^2/Exp# column. That is the randomly generated Chi-Square. In the example below that number is 5.12.

2. Place a 1 in the cell in the column frequency which corresponds to the range which fits the Chi-Square. In the example that would be in the cell next to interval 6 because 5.12 falls between 5 and 6.


3. After putting a one in that cell, move the cursor up or down one cell.
You should see the Chi-Square cell change to a new number.

4. Increment the frequency of the cell that the new Chi-Square corresponds to. So if the cell has a 0 in it make it a 1. If it has a 5 in it make it a 6.

5. Keep doing this until the number at the bottom of the frequency column (the total number of random Chi-Square) is 50 or so. You could do more if you want.

6. Now you can compare your Chi-Square to the ones the table of randomly generated ones here.
