    Hypothesis question

    Simple question: can you have a one-tailed and a two-tailed hypothesis in the same study. I am running 2 2way ANOVAs and one of them (extant literature is mixed) is just exploring whether there any difference either way (two tailed) and the other I am certain will be different in a certain...

    Non-parametric equivalent of an independent factor two way ANOVA?

    Hi there, I have been running ANOVAs with two IVs, the assumption of normality has a been violated on some of the levels and the distribution of residuals as been violated on some of the levels. I have therefore decided to carry out a non-parametric alternative to these ANOVAs. Would...

    Please help with outliers :(

    You are correct the SW is not normal. I think the fact that I have so many outliers, the skewness is over 1.96 for body satisfaction means I should run a non-parametric test for this one perhaps a Kruskal Wallis. Then just report both in the results? Thanks again :)

    Sorry misspoke! Meant to say I will have a look at shapiro then perhaps run a non para if that is advisable?

    Please help with outliers :(

    The sample size overall is 264, the independent variables are duration of use (of social media), frequency of checking (social media) and gender (male and female). The dependent variables are body satisfaction and body image. I want to know if there's any sig difference.

    Please help with outliers :(

    Thankyou, 23 outliers yep I know mostly mild but 5 are "moderate" I did it manually with a calculator and a ruler but I have just carried out the actual Tukey and there are outliers as I'd thought. Sample size is 264. The groups are not equal so that might be affecting things? I am carrying out...

    Please help with outliers :(

    Hi obh, Thankyou for replying so quickly. I used the method which uses boxplots with 1.5 (mild) 3 (extreme) x interquartile range. There are many mild outliers using this method so I thought I should just use moderate ones (between these ranges) maybe that was silly...I have just used the...

    Please help with outliers :(

    I am conducting research on the effects of social media usage (frequency of checking and duration) on body image and self esteem n = 264. Every ANOVA is not significant :( however Boxplots have revealed a good number of outliers. When I removed 5 "moderate outliers" (between the mild and extreme...
