What is ANOVA ANOVA is the primary statistical approach used to evaluate the effects of an independent variable involving more than two levels in experimental design (One-Factor, or One-way, ANOVA). E xample - does blood pressure vary by age group? ANOVA is also used to test the effects involving more than one IVs (Two- Factor, or Two-Way, ANOVA). E xample - does blood pressure vary by sex and/or age group?

Example of a study using ANOVA (from text pg. 240) Studying recall of visual stimuli Showed people 3 types of drawings Detailed Outline Incomplete Outline Which type of drawing will people recall the best?

Example continued. .. Independent variable : Factor: type of drawing Level: 3 (Detailed, Outline Incomplete, Outline) Dependent variable : number of items recalled after viewing 30 drawings for 4 seconds each 5 subjects were in each experimental

The data: are the 3 groups really different? Incomplete  Outline  Outline  Detailed  Drawing  19  14  15  13  13  10  16  16  11  17  12  12  20  10  12  Mean = 17  Mean = 13  Mean = 12

Are the groups really different?

Analysis strategy The mean of all the scores, the GLOBAL MEAN, is 14, but people vary around that mean. Why? Maybe the 3 groups are really different (drawing type really does affect recall) Maybe it’s just individual differences (random variation around the mean)

Analysis strategy (2) The basic concept of ANOVA is to partition variance of the dependent variable to between-group and within-group variations. Strategy: break up the total variance into 2 components: Between-groups variance - the differences between the 3 groups Within-groups variance - the differences among the subjects within each group

Null hypothesis : assume that there is no difference in the mean of the scores across the groups (all the variation in scores is caused by random error or individual differences, not by which group a subject is in). Alternative hypothesis
