# How do you interpret Anderson-Darling normality test?

## How do you interpret Anderson-Darling normality test?

The test rejects the hypothesis of normality when the p-value is less than or equal to 0.05. Failing the normality test allows you to state with 95% confidence the data does not fit the normal distribution. Passing the normality test only allows you to state no significant departure from normality was found.

**How do you perform an Anderson-Darling test in R?**

To conduct an Anderson-Darling Test in R, we can use the ad. test() function within the nortest library.

**Is Anderson-Darling test non parametric?**

Purpose: The k-sample Anderson-Darling test is a nonparametric statistical procedure that tests the hypothesis that the populations from which two or more groups of data were drawn are identical. Each group should be an independent random sample from a population.

### What does the Anderson-Darling test show?

The Andersonâ€“Darling test is a statistical test of whether a given sample of data is drawn from a given probability distribution. In its basic form, the test assumes that there are no parameters to be estimated in the distribution being tested, in which case the test and its set of critical values is distribution-free.

**What does the Anderson-Darling Test show?**

**What does an Anderson-Darling number mean?**

What does the Anderson-Darling statistic value mean? The AD statistic value tells you how well your sample data fits a particular distribution. The smaller the AD value, the better the fit.

#### What is a good normality score?

In small samples, values greater or lesser than 1.96 are sufficient to establish normality of the data.

**What is the difference between p-value and critical value?**

Relationship between p-value, critical value and test statistic. As we know critical value is a point beyond which we reject the null hypothesis. P-value on the other hand is defined as the probability to the right of respective statistic (Z, T or chi).
