**Friedman Test**Richardson, J. (2018). Friedman test. In B. B. Frey (Ed.),*The SAGE encyclopedia of educational research, measurement, and evaluation*(pp. 709-712). SAGE.

**This source describes the non-parametric version of the repeated measures analysis of variance. The Friedman test is used when one or more of the repeated measures ANOVA assumptions are not met.****Kruskal Willis**Richardson, J. (2018). Kruskal Wallis. In B. B. Frey (Ed.),*The SAGE encyclopedia of educational research, measurement, and evaluation*(pp. 937-939). SAGE. http://dx.doi.org.proxy1.ncu.edu/10.4135/9781506326139.n377

**This source describes the non-parametric version of the one-way analysis of variance. The Kruskal-Wallis test is used when one or more of the ANOVA assumptions are not met.****Mann-Whitney test**Richardson, J. (2018). Mann-Whitney test. In B. B. Frey (Ed.),*The SAGE encyclopedia of educational research, measurement, and evaluation*(pp. 1005-1008). SAGE. http://dx.doi.org.proxy1.ncu.edu/10.4135/9781506326139.n408

**This source describes the non-parametric version of the independent samples***t*- test. The Mann-Whitney test is used when one or more of the*t*- test assumptions are not met.**Spearman Correlation Coefficient**McHugh, M. (2018). Spearman correlation coefficient. In B. B. Frey (Ed.),*The SAGE encyclopedia of educational research, measurement, and evaluation*(pp. 1555-1558). SAGE.

**This correlation statistic is used to measure the strength of association between two variables measured at the ordinal level which do not meet Pearson Correlation Coefficient assumptions.****Wilcoxon**Coleman, J. (2018). Wilcoxon signed ranks test. In B. B. Frey (Ed.),*The SAGE encyclopedia of educational research, measurement, and evaluation*(pp. 1815-1816). SAGE.

**This source describes the non-parametric version of the dependent samples***t*- test, which is the Wilcoxon signed test. The major assumption of this test is that the data are at least at the ordinal level of measurement.
