The purpose of this page is to introduce you to how significance tests are conducted in Q and provide guidance on where to find more detailed information on the various aspects of testing.

Statistical Significance Testing in Tables

There are two general ways that Q does significance testing in a table. The default method is to show results from the cell comparison method using font colors and arrows, but you can change that to the more traditional column comparison method in the Show Significance drop-down. You can also modify the underlying assumptions for these tests in the Statistical Assumptions settings or use the Automate > Browse Online Library > Significance Testing menu to apply other rules.

Cell Comparisons Column Comparisons

Tests each cell against it's complement, see also: Testing the Complement of a Cell


Tests columns against one another, see also: Interpreting Column Comparisons and How to Specify Columns to be Compared

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

  1. Check to see if any Rules have been applied. If they have, review their documentation.
  2. Select the cell (or both cells if comparing columns)
  3. Press AlphaButton.png OR right click > Test Statistical Significance
