Can be used in a custom test block. Checks whether a certain H0 can be significantly rejected

  p.value, = "",
  alpha.warning = 0.01,
  alpha.failure = 0.05,
  short.message = "Fail to reject '{{test_name}}', p.value = {{p_value}}",
    warning.message = "The null hypothesis from the test '{{test_name}}', should not be rejcected, but I get a fairly low p.value of {{p_value}}.",
    failure.message = "I couldn't significantly reject the null hypothesis from the test '{{test_name}}', p.value = {{p_value}}",
    success.message = "Great, I could significantly reject the null hypothesis from the test '{{test_name}}', p.value = {{p_value}}!",
  check.warning = TRUE,
  ps =,
  stud.env = ps$stud.env,
  part = NULL,



an expression that calls a test which will be evaluated in stud.env. The test must return a list that contains a field "p.value"


Instead of providing test.expr, one can directly provide a p.value from a previously run test

an optional that can be used to fill the test_name whiskers in warning or failure messages.


default=0.05 a p.value below a warning is printed that the code may be wrong


default=0.001 the critical p.value below which the stud code is considered wrong

short.message, failure.messages,

warning.messages Messages in case of a failure and warning and short message for the log.file


if FALSE don't check for a warning


TRUE if H0 can be rejected, FALSE if not and "warning" if it can be weakly rejected
