Permutation tests and randomization tests were introduced almost a century
ago, well before inexpensive, high-speed computing made them feasible to
use. Fisher and Pitman showed the two-sample t-test could approximate the
permutation test in a two independent groups experiment. Today many
statistics educators are returning to the permutation test as a more
intuitive way to teach hypothesis testing. In this presentation, I will show
an interesting teaching example about primate behavior that illustrates how
simple permutation tests are to use, even with a messier data set that
admits of no obvious and easy-to-compute approximation.
