This test is effective applied to the “before and after” designs.  Nominal categorical measurement would be appropriate for assessing the “before to after” change. To test the significance of any observed changes by this method,  we need to use a fourfold table of frequencies.  The general features of of such a table are illustrated as follow

B and C are the frequency of individuals who responded the same both before and after. Those observations are not used in Mc Nemar test.  (A + D) is the total number of people whose responses changed. So we would expect that when H0 is true, the expected frequency in each of the two cells is ½(A+D). in other words, ½(A+D) changes from (+) to (-) and ½(A+D) changes from (-) to (+).

The statistics test is chi-squares test


This approximation will be more precise if a correction for continuity is made, then the formula will become as follow

When H0 is true, it is asymptotically distributed as chi square with df = 1.

Critical region:            χ> χ2(α ; 1)

  1. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. WordPress Seo Plugin

  2. I’ve been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

  3. Great blog here! Also your website so much up fast! What web host are you using? Can I am getting your affiliate link in your host? I wish my website loaded up as fast as yours lol
