2. ### How to show in a simplify scientific way the post-hoc test of 4 variables involved, when 3 by 3 variables are significant?

In a multi-factorial experiment involving 4 variables (species(2x), temperature(2x), nutrients(2x) and light(3x)), 3 by 3 variables, for example, "species", "temperature" and "nutrients" are significant instead of the expected significance of the 4 variables together. I end up with 12 post-hoc...
3. ### 3 way ANOVA following it up

This is quite simple question but im more simple :p I have DV and 3 IVs, each 2 levs. Making up example, lets say they are: DV=performance%, IV1=trial type (seeing, hearing) IV2=item type (target, distractor) IV3=confidence (high, low) Subjected to a 2x2x2 RM ANOVA in SPSS and i see no 3 way...

I have three categories of data (no change, uplisted, down listed). For each category I have a value for the frequency of occurrence. How do I compare these frequencies? It is essentially a one-way ANOVA type analysis that I want to do, but since the data are frequencies not means this test...
8. ### What follow-up tests for 3-way repeated measures ANOVA with no 3-way interaction?

For a three-way repeated measures ANOVA: Do I use simple main effects syntax or just run t-tests in SPSS in my follow up analyses (pairwise comparisons?) for a non-significant three-way interaction, with 1 significant 2-way, and 3 significant main effects? I'm interested not just in the...
