## Untitled

This article never bothers to say what Barnard's test is. Michael Hardy (talk) 18:19, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

## Clarification?

What does it mean in Purpose and scope: ″ because it considers more 'as or more extreme' tables by not conditioning on both margins.″? Should one delete the first 'more'? Xenonice (talk) 06:28, 29 December 2013 (UTC)

## Assessment comment

The comment(s) below were originally left at Talk:Barnard's test/Comments, and are posted here for posterity. Following several discussions in past years, these subpages are now deprecated. The comments may be irrelevant or outdated; if so, please feel free to remove this section.

 I'm very short on time right now and don't yet understand how to add external links in references... But I thought I should mention that I've found one of the papers mentioned in the references, which does not now have an external link: "Conditional versus Unconditional Exact Tests for Comparing Two Binomials" is at http://www.cytel.com/Papers/twobinomials.pdf. If someone who knows how wants to add it, great.

## "Criticisms" should actually contain some

The section on criticisms should contain criticisms of *Barnard's* test. It doesn't seem to contain any -- it seems it's just criticisms of Fisher's test (which belong elsewhere). Where's Barnard's own criticisms of unconditional tests in comparison with conditional tests for example? Indeed most of the article is tendentious rather than impartial/neutral. The claim that Barnard's test is preferred by "most researchers" is likely to be false. I've marked it as citation needed -- if none if forthcoming, that claim should be removed.
