A New Methodology for Research in the Schools and Universities - Nonparametric Analysis of Trend.
Pascale, Pietro J.; Pascale, Jeannie S.
Trend analysis is explained in nontechnical language with examples given for both parametric and nonparametric situations. Similarities and differences between parametric and nonparametric trend analyses are conveniently charted. Practical research applications for Directors of Testing and Directors of Institutional Research are stressed. A linear nonparametric trend which serves as a prototype is calculated in a step-by-step manner. The linear and quadratic tests for trend for the three- and four-level case are programmed in both FORTRAN IV and BASIC. This paper concludes with the explanation of interpreting computer printout.
