Analyse your data with step jump test report

Step 1: To create  the“Step jump test report”, click “Dashboards”.

Step 2: Select the “Analysis” option to view all the reports.

Step 3:  Select the “Step jump test report” from the analysis option.

Note:  You can see the default report in your work area. Drag it to wherever you want it to be placed. Also, you can resize it by dragging the bottom right corner.

Step 4: Click “Edit”  menu on the report header to edit your report’s data, appearance and social settings.

Step 5: To link data to the report, select the desired file from the left file tree and select the desired columns.

Step 6:  In “Settings” click the reporting properties you want to analyse in your report. The tests for trend include:

  • Cu sum: The method is a parametric test assesses if the means are different in two parts of a record.
  • Cumulative deviation: The method assesses if the means are different in two parts of a record (for an unknown time of change).
  • Worsley likelihood: The method assesses if the means are different in two parts of a record (for an unknown time of change).

Advanced Options:

  • Address auto correlation by transforming data to annual average: In order to undertake the statistical analysis, it is assumed that samples should be independent from each other. When samples are taken very frequently, the value of each sample can be highly correlated with the value of the previous sample. For example, it is very cold today, which means its likely to be cold tomorrow, because the same weather is influencing the temperature on both days, therefore, the temperature samples are not independent samples.A quick and coarse way to approximate independent sampling is to summarise data into an annual average. The statistical test compares the average annual values which can be considered more independent than consecutive daily samples.

Step 7: After selecting the properties, format your report with “Formatting tab” which allows:

  • Title-font: the title font size, type and colour.
  • Title-Background:the title background colour.
  • Header font: the header font size, type and colour.
  • Body font: the body font size, type and colour.
  • Alignment: alignment of the text.
