Allocation of Specimens, Simple Experiment

What is the name of your data file?

The name should be unique to you to prevent the file from being accidentally overwritten by another user.

The first column of the file must contain a specimen ID. The specimen ID's must not contain blanks. Only the first 20 characters of the ID's will be retained in the output. The second column must contain the predictor value for the specimen. There may be no more than 5000 specimens.

Before you proceed, you must transfer this data file to via anonymous ftp. You must place it in the pub/tt directory. (If ftp does not run on your machine, e-mail your data to and ask me to place it in the appropriate anonymous ftp directory. I will do so and notify you via e-mail. You can then run the Tight T program over the Web.)

How many replications are there per treatment (level)?

What is the starting value for the random number generator?
(It must be a positive integer less than 1000000000.)

The "random" numbers that are generated are exactly determined by the starting value. Thus, if you want a different set of "random" numbers, you must supply a different starting value.

What are the names of the two treatments (levels)?
(20 or fewer characters)
