## Basic mechanics of Q's testing

The basic process of statistical in Q works as follows:

- The user specifies the relationships to be tested.
- Q computes a p-Value
- Results are highlighted as significant if
- The Corrected p-Value is less than or equal to the specified Overall significance level.
- The relevant settings are set to show significance (see Ways of Showing Statistical Significance).

- If a Rule has been applied, this is then used and may replace the results computed in the previous steps.

See Overview of Statistical Testing in Q for more detail.

## Working out which test has been conducted

To work out which test has been conducted on the cell of a table:

- Check to see if any Rules have been applied. If they have, review their documentation.
- Select that cell and press (see Planned Tests of Statistical Significance).
