Analysis of Variancfe (ANOVA) -null hypothesis: same mean, same variance -alternative hypothesis: different means, same variance -three groups -3 means -3 sum of squares Always assume: -equal sample sizes -independent F test -comparing two different estimates of variance -two different ways to estimate variance -are the two estimates the same -NOT are the two sample means the same F = M SB /M SW Mean squre between groups/mean squre within groups -two estimates of the variance of the population that the scores came from
