StatLab 8a: 2-Factor Anova for independent groups A researcher wanted to investigate if there is any effect of level of motivation and/or task difficulty on task performance. He decided to use three types of incentives to manipulate participants’ motivation (i.e., three levels of motivation = low, medium and high) and he prepare two tasks that differ in levels of difficulty (easy and difficult). Participants were randomly assigned to one out of six experimental conditions and their performance on the task was measured. The obtained data are listed below. Is there any evidence that motivation and/or task difficulty produced a significant effect on task performance? Motivation: LOW Motivation: MEDIUM Motivation: HIGH Task: EASY 3,1,1,6,4 2,5,9,7,7 9,9,13,6,8 Task: DIFFICULT 0,2,0,0,3 3,8,3,3,3 0,0,0,5,0 1.
