Mood-Test

The mood non parametric test allows to compare medians of k independent samples. Run it in Excel using the XLSTAT statistical software.

Proposed in 1950, the Mood test - also called median test - allows the median equality between k independent samples to be tested.

This test is based on a nonparametric procedure – thus not making any assumption on the distribution of the measurements- and can be considered as a special case of the Pearson Khi² test.
