Presents an alternative statistical test, BOOT(subscript)med for the two-group situation when a small experimental group is being compared with a large control group. BOOTmed is a between-groups median test derived through bootstrapping techniques. Empirical validation indicates that BOOTmed maintains relatively robust error rates under a variety of conditions.
