Chapter 8 Complete Block Designs 1 RCBD Using One Blocking Criterion Section 8.1 pp 263-264 In the designs we have looked at so far we have assumed that we have enough homogeneous experimental units to complete an experiment. What if we don’t have that many? One approach is to use some type of blocking. Note there are many blocking methods. We will look at complete blocks first. Any factor that affects the response variable in a non-homogeneous manner will increase the experimental error and decrease the precision of the experimental results. The point here is that the blocking increases the precision because it reduces and controls the experimental error variance. Successful blocking results in less variation among the units within the blocks than that among units from different blocks.

Chapter 8 Complete Block Designs 2 Section 8.2 pp 264-275 We will start this with fixed blocks. Random blocks will discussed in turn.
