# Manuals/calci/Bartlett'sTest

**BARTLETTSTEST(DataRange,ConfidenceLevel,NewTableFlag)**

- is the array of x values.
- is the value from 0 to 1.
- is either TRUE or FALSE. TRUE for getting results in a new cube. FALSE will display results in the same cube.

## Description

- Bartlett's test is used to test if k samples are from populations with equal variances.
- Also called Bartlett's test for homogeneity of variances. It is used to test if variances are equal for all samples.
- Bartlett's test is sensitive to departures from normality.
- It is used when you’re fairly certain your data comes from a normal distribution.
- That is, if the samples come from non-normal distributions, then Bartlett's test may simply be testing for non-normality.

```
```

- B is the Bartlett's test static.
- is the pooled variance across all groups.

## Result

- If p-value is greater than BCriticl value, reject the null hypothesis.
- Else retain null hypothesis.
