cscores {exactRankTests}  R Documentation 
This function can be used to compute several scores for a data vector.
## Default S3 method: cscores(y, type=c("Data", "Wilcoxon", "NormalQuantile", "AnsariBradley", "Median", "Savage", "ConSal"), int=FALSE, maxs=length(y), ... ) ## S3 method for class 'factor' cscores(y, ...) ## S3 method for class 'Surv' cscores(y, type="LogRank", int=FALSE, maxs=nrow(y), ...)
y 
a numeric, factor or logical vector or an object of class

type 
a character string which specifies the type of the scores to be
computed. 
int 
a logical, forcing integer valued scores. 
maxs 
an integer defining the maximal value of the scores
if 
... 
additional arguments, not passed to anything at the moment. 
This function will serve as the basis for a more general framework of rank and permutation tests in future versions of this package. Currently, it is only used in the examples.
The logrank scores are computed as given in Hothorn & Lausen (2002).
If integer valued scores are requested (int = TRUE
), the
scores
are mapped into integers by
round(scores*length(scores)/max(scores))
. See dperm
for
more details.
type
is self descriptive, except for ConSal
which implements
scores suggested by Conover & Salsburg (1988).
A vector of scores for y
with an attribute scores
indicating
the kind of scores used is returned.
