Introduction

Attendance plays an important role in a child's performance at school. When a child misses school on a regular basis it may alter the child's interest in school thus leading to the desire to drop out entirely. The purpose of this test is to examine students who learn at a slower pace versus students who learn at a regular or average pace and how the speed of learning can affect whether or not the child will attend school.

The data used to perform this test was given by, The Statistical Analysis of Discrete Data by T.J. Santner & D.E. Duffy. The paper will describe the results of this hypothesis test using a nonparametric test. A nonparametric test is widely used in identifying population differences when certain assumptions are not satisfied.
