Aligned Rank Transform for Nonparametric Factorial Analysis
Released Aug 13, 2015 by Pablo J. Villacorta
An implementation of the Aligned Rank Transform technique for factorial analysis (see references below for details) including models with missing terms (unsaturated factorial models). The function first computes a separate aligned ranked response variable for each effect of the user-specified model, and then runs a classic ANOVA on each of the aligned ranked responses.
