The Classical F(CF) test relies on three major underlying assumptions namely; non overlapping of the populations, constancy of variance and absence of outliers. These assumptions had been violated because of the presence of outliers in observations or  due to other causes. Previous attempts to address these violations resulted in the inflation of type I error, because the conventional F table is still being used by researchers in decision making. This study therefore was designed to develop a modified robust Exponentiated F test and generate its corresponding modified statistical table for decision making on one way analysis of variance (ANOVA) tests in the presence of heteroscedasticity.


Dr. Kazeem Adepoju is currently a Lecturer at the University of Minnesota School of Statistics, USA. He joined the School of Statistics in 2018 and was formerly a lecturer at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria. He completed Professional Diploma in Statistics with Distinction, Bachelor of Science in Statistics with first class, Master of Science as well PhD in Statistics, all from the University of Ibadan, Nigeria. Dr. Kazeem did a postdoc under the watchful eyes of Professor Galin Jones, the director of the University of Minnesota School of Statistics.

Dr. Adepoju's research interests include mathematical statistics, robust statistical models, statistics education, random effects estimation in repeated measures setting, modeling longitudinal data and machine learning algorithms. He has presented in a good number of international conferences around the world and has published more than 30 research articles in a scholarly journal. He is a member of the Nigeria Statistical Association, Nigeria Mathematical Society, American Mathematical Society, Mathematical Association of America, Bernoulli Society for Mathematical Statistics & Probability, and American Statistical Association.

Dr. Adepoju is a recipient of various research grants which include: the 2013 International Conference on Statistical Distributions and Applications, conference held at Central Michigan University, USA; Association of Commonwealth Universities grant to present his PhD work at the University of Oxford, United Kingdom 2015; Joint Mathematics Meeting, Atlanta, Georgia, USA in 2017; Stochastic Processes and Application at Brown University held at Providence, Rhode Island, USA in 2018; and Design and Analysis of Experiment at University of Tennessee, Knoxville, USA in 2019.

Dr. Adepoju is also a recipient of the Outstanding Teaching Award sponsored by the Center for Educational Innovation, University of Minnesota, USA for five semesters in a row from 2019 to 2021. He is the Assistant Director of Undergraduate Studies at the University of Minnesota School of Statistics.

Dr. Adepoju is from Alafara Olubadan Compound, Ibadan, Oyo state, Nigeria, but was raised in Ondo State southwestern, Nigeria. He is happily married to Nurat Adepoju and blessed with five lovely daughters.
