This example illustrates a nice use of BigPicture, one that should be useful to statisticians (or people who are attempting to learn inferential statistics). It breaks down commonly used hypothesis tests into three groups: tests on a single parameter, tests comparing parameters from two populations, and tests comparing parameters from more than two populations.

Children of these main topics list the parameters involved, and their children indicate how the tests can be performed with the StatTools add-in. Color coding is used to distinguish the levels of the topics, and lighter colored topics refer to nonparametric tests.
