ANOVA instead of t test Variance instead of simple differences between means ANOVA: Hypotheses, Fratio, Simple Formulas Total variance vs within variance vs between variance Definitional and computational formulas Fratio Degrees of freedom; Distribution of Fratios t Tests for Two Samples Let us look for significant differences between two groups of scores Treatment A Treatment B 0 4 1 3 3 6 1 3 0 4 What are the odds of finding the observed difference between the means if the treatment has no effect? t Tests for Two Samples Let us look for significant differences between two groups of scores Treatment A Treatment B 0 4 s 2 p = SS A + SS B 1 3 df A + df B 3 6 1 3 0 4 Part of this involves pooling the sample variances (with H 1 2 3 4 assumed true in our test, this is OK). Design with 3 samples How do we approach this? Treatment A Treatment B Treatment C 0 4 1 1 3 2 3 6 2 1 3 0 0 4 0 Compare 3 means? How?
