Libraries.Compute.Statistics.Reporting.StatisticsFormatting Documentation

This class handles some basic formatting operations for statistical reporting. By default It uses the conventions from the American Psychological Association. See their Statistics guide for more information: https://apastyle.apa.org/instructional-aids/numbers-statistics-guide.pdf

Actions Documentation

Compare(Libraries.Language.Object object)

This action compares two object hash codes and returns an integer. The result is larger if this hash code is larger than the object passed as a parameter, smaller, or equal. In this case, -1 means smaller, 0 means equal, and 1 means larger. This action was changed in Quorum 7 to return an integer, instead of a CompareResult object, because the previous implementation was causing efficiency issues.

Example Code

Object o
        Object t
        integer result = o:Compare(t) //1 (larger), 0 (equal), or -1 (smalle

Parameters

Return

integer: The Compare result, Smaller, Equal, or Larger.

Equals(Libraries.Language.Object object)

This action determines if two objects are equal based on their hash code values.

Example Code

use Libraries.Language.Object
        use Libraries.Language.Types.Text
        Object o
        Text t
        boolean result = o:Equals(

Parameters

Return

boolean: True if the hash codes are equal and false if they are not equal.

FormatCorrelation(number value)

This action formats specifically the correlation for a particular statistical test.

Parameters

Return

text:

FormatDegreesOfFreedom(number value)

This action formats specifically the degrees of freedom for a particular statistical test.

Parameters

GetHashCode()

This action gets the hash code for an object.

Return

integer:

GetSignificantDigits()
