Selina joy'd to rove;
And watch a Halcyon on the shore,
Within a little cove.

Greedy Random Walk
The purpose of this paper is to develop a simple test for testing the hypothesis on the treatment effect adjusting for certain covariates; the proposed test uses the COV ariate-adjusted E xpected S hortfall (COVES).
Detection of treatment effects by covariate-adjusted expected shortfall
In Section 4, we compare the proposed COVES test with the t-test based on the least squares regression in empirical power.
Detection of treatment effects by covariate-adjusted expected shortfall
Section 6 concludes the paper with some additional remarks about the COVES test.
Detection of treatment effects by covariate-adjusted expected shortfall
The quantity COVESτ (d) is the average of the outcomes for group d that are above the τ th covariateadjusted quantile.
Detection of treatment effects by covariate-adjusted expected shortfall
Together, we find that the proposed COVES test greatly outperforms the usual regression tests on the mean differences when the group differences occur at one tail of the distributions.
Detection of treatment effects by covariate-adjusted expected shortfall
The power functions for the COVES test with τ = 0.75 and the t-test from linear regression are shown in Figure 3 with sample sizes up to m = n = 350.
Detection of treatment effects by covariate-adjusted expected shortfall
The type I errors of the COVES test and the t-test under these scenarios are controlled to stay close to the nominal level of 0.05.
Detection of treatment effects by covariate-adjusted expected shortfall
The results clearly show the efficiency of the COVES test.
Detection of treatment effects by covariate-adjusted expected shortfall
When preliminary or full data are available, it is often helpful to have a simple diagnostic tool that points to a case in favor of the COVES test.
Detection of treatment effects by covariate-adjusted expected shortfall
When the quantiles of covariate-adjusted outcomes from different treatment groups differ mostly in one tail, we have a clear case in favor of the COVES test or a similar test that focuses on the tail.
Detection of treatment effects by covariate-adjusted expected shortfall
In fact, the plot can also suggest an appropriate level of τ to be used for COVES.
Detection of treatment effects by covariate-adjusted expected shortfall
No matter which quantile level we started with, the quantile plots of the covariate-adjusted outcomes look similar, and they all suggest that the COVES test with τ around 0.75 would be a good choice.
Detection of treatment effects by covariate-adjusted expected shortfall
On the other hand, if the quantile functions of different treatment groups show a vertical shift, we would then favor the t-test to the COVES test.
Detection of treatment effects by covariate-adjusted expected shortfall
The proposed COVES test aims to detect treatment effects that are reflected mostly in the upper (or lower) tail of the outcome distributions.
