By performing data analysis, statistical approaches are highly welcome to explore the data. Nowadays with the increases in computational power and the availability of big data in different domains, it is not enough to perform exploratory data analysis (descriptive statistics) to obtain some prior insights from the data, but it is a requirement to apply higher-level statistics that also require much greater knowledge from the user to properly apply them. One research area where proper usage of statistics is important is multi-objective optimization, where the performance of a newly developed algorithm should be compared with the performances of state-of-the-art algorithms. In multi-objective optimization, we are dealing with two or more usually conflicting objectives, which result in high dimensional data that needs to be analyzed. In this paper, we present a web-service-based e-Learning tool called DSCTool that can be used for performing a proper statistical analysis for multi-objective optimization. The tool does not require any special statistics knowledge from the user. Its usage and the influence of a proper statistical analysis is shown using data taken from a benchmarking study performed at the 2018 IEEE CEC (The IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation) is appropriate.
