April 25, 2008 Testing Hypothesis with multiple group means (ANOVA) Why analysis of variance (ANOVA)? o To compare means across more than 2 groups We have a continuous (interval or ratio level) dependent variable, and more than 2 groups Exactly like a t-test for independent sample, but for more than 2 groups The logic of ANOVA o When we compare means across groups, we need to think of how the scores vary: There is the total variance for the sample Then there is the between-group variance And there is the within-group variance o Total variance = between variance + within variance o We compare the differences across the groups to the differences within groups o Just like with a t-test, where we compare the difference between scores to the standard error Total variance (1) o Total variance measure how each case varies from the mean: Total variance : s 2 = (Σ (x1- ) 2 ) / n-1 o First we calculate the sum of squares : SS total = Σ i Σ k (x ik - grand ) 2 Total variance (2) o

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
