This is a mini-statistical package designed to implement Frequentist statistics but with an emphasis on explanation of results informed by a Bayesian perspective. It is more intuitive in terms of input and output than larger, commercial packages. It was initially written to accompany my textbook, Statistics with Common Sense, (by David Kault, Greenwood Press, 2003). It has a particular emphasis on the simple non-parametric tests and avoids errors which occur when larger commercial statistics packages use normal approximations. (However, it is not entirely error free when there are ties in such tests) As well it does other simple tests such as t-tests and one way ANOVA. It is small because it gives no graphical output.
