# Kruskal-Wallis Test in Excel

## When to Use the Kruskal-Wallis Test

A Kruskal-Wallis test is like an Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). It is a non-parametric test that compares unmatched groups. Samples must be random, independent and five or more per sample.

**Note: **Excel does not do statistical tests of non-normal (i.e., not "bell shaped") data. QI Macros, adds this functionality with a set of of non-parametric statistical test templates.

### Kruskal-Wallis Example

A golfer wants to compare three drivers to determine which one is the longest. He hits five drives with each driver and measures the distance.

To conduct a test using QI Macros he will:

- Click on QI Macros menu, Statistical Templates to open the non-parametrics test template. Then click on the Kruskal Wallis tab.
- Input the data into the yellow shaded cells in columns A:C.
- QI Macros will perform the calculations and display the results in columns D:K

**Interpreting the Hypothesis Test results**: Since p (0.151) is greater than alpha (0.05) he cannot reject the null hypothesis that the distance of all three drivers is the same.

*Default Significance Level is 0.05*
