`posthocTGH.Rd`

This function is used by the 'oneway' function for oneway analysis of variance in case a user requests post-hoc tests using the Tukey or Games-Howell methods.

posthocTGH(y, x, method = c("games-howell", "tukey"), conf.level = 0.95, digits = 2, p.adjust = "none", formatPvalue = TRUE) # S3 method for posthocTGH print(x, digits = x$input$digits, ...)

y | y has to be a numeric vector. |
---|---|

x | x has to be vector that either is a factor or can be converted into one. |

method | Which post-hoc tests to conduct. Valid values are "tukey" and "games-howell". |

conf.level | Confidence level of the confidence intervals. |

digits | The number of digits to show in the output. |

p.adjust | Any valid |

formatPvalue | Whether to format the p values according to APA standards (i.e. replace all values lower than .001 with '<.001'). This only applies to the printing of the object, not to the way the p values are stored in the object. |

… | Any additional arguments are passed on to the `print` function. |

A list of three elements:

List with input arguments

List of intermediate objects.

List with two objects 'tukey' and 'games.howell', containing the outcomes for the respective post-hoc tests.

This function is based on a file that was once hosted at
http://www.psych.yorku.ca/cribbie/6130/games_howell.R, but has been removed
since. It was then adjusted for implementation in the
`userfriendlyscience`

package. Jeffrey Baggett needed the
confidence intervals, and so emailed them, after which his updated function
was used. In the meantime, it appears Aaron Schlegel
(https://rpubs.com/aaronsc32) independently developed a version with
confidence intervals and posted it on RPubs at
https://rpubs.com/aaronsc32/games-howell-test.

Also, for some reason, `p.adjust`

can be used to specify additional
correction of *p* values. I'm not sure why I implemented this, but I'm
not entirely sure it was a mistake either. Therefore, in
`userfriendlyscience`

version 0.6-2, the default of this setting
changed from `"holm"`

to `"none"`

(also see
