Week 9 & 10: More Regression Analysis
Different Types of Regression
Many different types of Regression
Linear
Stepwise & Hierarchical
Multiple
Generalized linear models and mixed models
Regression is a predictive model
Predicting an outcome (DV) fr

Week 8: MANCOVA
Review of ANCOVA
You are controlling for a 3rd variable that could be impacting your DV
You must create an interaction effect between your IV and Covariate (This is done in the Model option). This tells
you if there is a significant effe

Week 8 ANCOVA
ANOVA
Analysis of Variance
The test is more flexible and robust when comparing many groups, however, there is
more room for variance!
ANCOVA
Analysis of Covariance
Very similar to the ANOVA we have already learned about!
You still are a

Intro to Regression!
T-Tests, ANOVAS, Chi-Square, and Correlations are all observing actual and true scores/measurements,
from a group or groups of interest.
But what if you want to anticipate or predict an outcome given a certain variable or variables

Week 2: t-tests & Chi Square tests
The t-test
This test looks at two means and compares them to determine if the means are
significantly different
The difference is great enough that it is not due to chance!
The goal is to decide if difference of your

Week 3: Chi-Square Tests & Correlation
How we Write up a Chi-Square (Independence)
Researchers looked into the relationship between gender and if the participant had ever
used stimulants. A chi-square test for independence was performed to look into this

Week 6: ANOVA & Repeated Measures ANOVA
Assumptions in ANOVA
This is a parametric test, so
Assumptions are pretty much the same as for the other parametric test we went over t-test
