    Is one-way ANOVA the proper test to use?

    Hello, In my science class, we had to record the amount of time it took for an ant to escape 4 different colored mazes to see if color had an impact on escape time. In determining the statistical significance of the differences in escape time for the different colors, would a one-way ANOVA be...

    Coding and Visualizing Repeated Measures and Mixed-Effects Models

    I am doing a study analyzing trends in changing bird diversity over the past 40 years. Surveys have been taken at 20 locations each year. The survey locations are the random effect and repeated each year. This is the code and output I used in the lme4 library...

    Protocol comparison: repeated measures ANOVA and mixed linear models

    Hello! This is my first experience with repeated measures ANOVA and mixed linear models. Since I did not found an example that uses a design similar to my experiment, I hope I can get some help. I collected 3 soil samples (SAMPLE_ID) in 4 areas (SITE), totaling 12 samples. My objective is to...

    What is the best statistical test/approach for pre- and post-intervention analysis?

    Dear colleagues, We assessed several psychological measures (e.g. self-compassion scale, five-facets mindfulness questionnaire, satisfaction with life scale) before and after a Mindfulness-Based Psychoeducational Program for groups of people with acquired brain injuries. We would like to...

    formula for factorial ANOVA interaction effect

    Good day. I have a question regarding the formula for calculating interaction effects. In Andy Field book he gives: SSa×b = SSmodel − SSa − SSb, where a and b are the different factors in our model. What happens when we have 3 or more factors? Is this then: SSa×b×c = SSmodel - SSa - SSb - SSc...

    How can I compare the effect of different VI on my VD?

    Hi, I would like to compare the effect of different independent variables on a dependent variable. My VD is quantitative. I have 3 VI that are nominal: Valence (2 levels), Rhetorical orientation (2 levels), statement type (3 levels). It looks like that: In order to asses the influence of...

    Need help: What is the appropriate test to perform?

    Dear All, I have some troubles choosing the right test to my data. I have 7 groups in total with N=8 samples each. Group 1: control Group 2: Variable 1 = A, Variable 2 = 1 Group 3: Variable 1 = A, Variable 2 = 2 Group 4: Variable 1 = A, Variable 2 = 3 Group 5: Variable 1 = B, Variable 2 =1...

    Significant interaction no significant comparision

    Dear community, I did a linear mixed model full factorial with 2x2. I use the linear mixed model like an ANOVA and I have one significant main effect and a significant interaction effect.To solve the interaction I split my data by one variable and analyze the main effect by the other variable...

    Hi All! I've been trying to manually calculate the sum of squares for 2 independent variables in an ANOVA table and can only seem to work out two total sum of squares exaplianed by the two independent vairables. Is there any way that I can work out how many sum of squares is attributed to each...

    Anova question

    Anova question... I know anova is typically used on three groups who take one test, for example, but can you use it on one group who takes three tests (to compare the means on the three different tests, when all participants took all three tests)?

    Hello, I am comparing individual's answers to 10 questions where they must put a low range and a high range. After answering these questions individually, they answer the same questions but in a group. I am hypothesizing that a measure they took on their individual goal orientation level will...
