Hello

Is there a difference between folded F test and Fisher F test.
(The new SAS Certification guide for statistical business analyst uses this term).

The folded F test is also called the F test of equality of variances, it is based on the F distribution.

The same F-test (sometimes called Fisher's F test) is also used in the context of ANOVA.

 

Both versions of the test are based on the ratio of variances. The folded version puts the greater variance at the numerator before comparing to the F distribution while the ANOVA test doesn't.
