The contribution is devoted to the analysis of teaching methods via Fisher's combinatorial test. It 's follow-up to the contribution "Analysis of teaching methods of university teachers supporting the development of entrepreneurial skills", which also deals with the teaching methods. Mentioned contribution is in editorial. In the practical part, based on the questionnaire survey, the data are examined as to whether there is a dependence between the use of individual teaching methods to each other. The evaluation is performed using the Fisher´s Combination Test. The aim was to focus on the degree of statistical dependence between selected questions of the questionnaire survey.

For example, respondents' views on the effectiveness of the educational process using the case study method and the use of discussion methods in the educational process have been studied in this contribution. It was also examined whether there is a dependence between respondents' views on the implementation of discussion methods and their influence on the development of critical thinking. We also analyzed the relationship between brainstorming and discussion. Six questions from the questionnaire on the teaching methods were selected for testing and were analyzed through the Fisher´s Combinatorial Test. The testing was performed at a significance level α = 0.05.Using this test, pre-formulated hypotheses are verified.

First examined dependence:
H0= The opinions of teachers on the effectiveness of case studies do not influence the use of discussion methods.
HA= The opinions of teachers on the effectiveness of case studies have a significant statistical influence on using discussion methods.

Second examined dependence:
H0= The opinions of teachers on the effectiveness of using the critical thinking method do not influence the use of discussion methods.
HA= The opinions of teachers on the effectiveness of the critical thinking method have a statistically significant influence on the use of the discussion methods.

Third examined dependence:
H0= The opinions of teachers on the effectiveness of implementing brainstorming do not influence the use of discussion methods.
HA= The opinions of teachers on the effectiveness of implementing brainstorming have a significant statistical influence on the use of discussion methods.
