Two-sample T-tests are great for comparing population means given two samples. However, if the number of samples increases beyond two, we need a much more versatile and powerful technique - analysis of variance (ANOVA). Use this course to learn more about non-parametric tests and the ANOVA analysis. In this course, you'll explore the different use cases for Mann-Whitney U-tests, the use of the non-parametric paired Wilcoxon signed-rank test, and perform pairwise T-tests and ANOVA. You'll also get a chance to try your hand at the non-parametric variant of ANOVA - Kruskal Wallis test and post hoc tests, such as Tukey's honestly significant difference test (HSD). After completing this course, you will be able to account for the effect of one or two independent categorical variables, each having an arbitrary number of levels, on a dependent variable using ANOVA.
