Each student will write an R package implementing statistical
methods described in the following paper “A Simple and Robust
Method for Partially Matched Samples Using the P-Values Pooling
Approach”, Stat Med (2013)

This paper discussed several methods for handling partially
matched samples
E.g., Complete samples
Before Trt x1 x2 x3 x4 x5 x6 x7 x8 x9 x10
After Trt y1 y2 y3 y4 y5 y6 y7 y8 y9 y10
Partially matched samples
Before Trt x1 x2 NA NA NA x6 x7 x8 x9 x10
After Trt NA NA y3 y4 y5 y6 y7 y8 y9 y10

You will write function(s) implementing
I Liptak’s weighted Z-test
I Kim et al.’s modified t-statistic
I Looney and Jones’s corrected Z-test
I Lin and Stivers’s MLE based test under heteroscedasticity
I Ekbohm’s MLE-based test under homoscedasticity
You will then wrap these up as an R package

Individual Project
The R package has to be complete and contains a vignette
describing how to use the R package
The R package is due May 05, 2021 at 5:00 PM
Submit your package as original source package (i.e., .tar.gz file) on
PMlastname_version.tar.gz (version is generated automatically
after you build your package successfully)
Some of the grading criteria include:
I Can the R package be installed successfully?
I Is the R package implementing the required method correctly?
I Has it considered all possible scenarios?
I Is the R package user friendly (vignette, help files, warning messages,
sample data, sample code)?
I What is the computational speed?
