Appendix B. Understanding Results

Appendix B. Understanding Results

In the process of analyzing data, you will encounter terms in the results that reference vital information. Throughout Chapters 5 and 6, we discussed many of the relevant terms and results in the context of the application and analysis we were performing. This appendix is designed to provide a basic description of the common terms used in each of those platforms to help you understand your own results. We also point out where you can find complete descriptions in JMP's documentation. In most cases, you can simply use the "?" help tool and select the term in question to obtain more information. In other cases, by holding your mouse cursor over statistics, you can see Hover Help, which provides context-specific assistance in interpreting a statistic.

While a graph can be worth a thousand words and is more easily interpreted, the statistical results generated from the Analyze menu contain numerical results and terms that might be less transparent. It is important that you understand the basic ideas behind the results. This section offers a basic and general reference rather than a comprehensive one. To increase your confidence in interpreting statistical results, we encourage you to seek advice from an experienced data analyst or reference the books that ship with JMP (see the Help menu).
