Below Above 1 0 1 0 1 0 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 2

In class, we wrote something like the following code in R: (However, there seems to be a problem. The t-test statistic in our data was 3.56. It is possible to get the same statistic if one zero, one 1, and two 2's are in the below column. It is possible to have a more extreme value if two 1's and two 2's are in the below column. Our result or something more extreme should be coming up about 12 times out of 1000. I don't get them to come up at all in simulations running up to 100,000. It is probably a problem with the random number generation and better code would fix it.)

out <- array(0, dim=c(10000)) pool = c(0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,1,1,1,2,2) for(i in 1:10000){ pool<-sample(pool, 23) below = pool[1:4] above = pool[5:23] out[i] = t.test(above, below, var.equal=TRUE)$statistic } out[order(out)]In other years, we wrote the code below for a global macro to perform a bootstrap version of a permutation test on these data. The following code creates a permutation, forms the pooled-variance t-statistic, and counts the number of times the t-statistic exceeded that of the original data. The code has to be modified if the test is not whether the mean or column 1 is greater than the mean of column 2 but a 2-sided test or a test in the other direction.
