Revision notes:

  • Aug 2015:  Corrected labeling issues in Hypothesis Test for Proportion, and changed the default for the continuity correction to "off".  Also, when the "Create Data Table" option is used the script now writes out both the test statistics and the p-values to the data table. 
  • Sep 2016:  Fixed an issue with the test statistic.  Added the feature to allow the user to specify the null hypothesis.  Fixed some scaling issues.
