Specify the randomization options for Create Attribute Agreement Analysis Worksheet

Stat > Quality Tools > Create Attribute Agreement Analysis Worksheet > Options
Select the randomization option that best describes how you want to collect your attribute data.
  • Do not randomize: Do not randomize the assessments so that the run order is the same as the standard order. The worksheet includes a column that lists the run order of all assessments sequentially (1 through the total number of runs).
  • Randomize all runs: Randomize the run order of all assessments. Each time you create another worksheet and randomize all runs again, you will have a different run order.
  • Randomize runs within appraisers: Randomize runs for each appraiser. Each appraiser evaluates all samples, in random order, for the first replicate. Then each appraiser evaluates all samples for the second replicate. For example, Appraiser 1 assesses samples 1–10 in random order, then Appraiser 2 assesses samples 1–10 in random order, for each replicate.
    Randomize appraiser sequence
    Randomly assign the appraiser order sequence for all the replicates. For example, suppose you have 3 appraisers and 2 replicates. The appraiser order will be random so that Appraiser 3 could assess all the samples in replicate 1, and all the samples in replicate 2, before Appraiser 1 assesses the samples.

Base for random data generator
Enter a positive integer to set the starting point of Minitab's random number generator. When you create a new data collection worksheet, if you want to use the same set of random orderings, set the base to the same value.
Store standard run order in worksheet
Specify whether to store the standard order of runs in the worksheet. The standard order is the non-randomized order of the runs.
