Repeated Measures ANOVA

Statistics Solutions provides a data analysis plan template for the repeated measures ANOVA analysis.  You can use this template to develop the data analysis section of your dissertation or research proposal.

The template includes research questions stated in statistical language, analysis justification and assumptions of the analysis.  Simply edit the blue text to reflect your research information and you will have the data analysis plan for your dissertation or research proposal.

Data Analysis Plan: Repeated Measures ANOVA

Copy and paste the following into a word document to use as your data analysis plan template.

 

Research Question:

RQ: Is there a difference on dependent variable by time (time 1 vs. time 2)?

H0: There is no difference on dependent variable by time (time 1 vs. time 2).

H4a: There is a difference on dependent variable by time (time 1 vs. time 2).

Data Analysis

To examine this research question, a repeated-measures analysis of variance (ANOVA) will be conducted to assess if mean differences exist on dependent variable by administration (administration 1 vs. administration 2).  An analysis of variance (ANOVA) is used to assess in one dependent variable measured several times. The repeated measures ANOVA is used to test the effects of a continuous dependent variable measured several times. The continuous dependent variable of the analysis is dependent variable, measured X times.  The F-test of significance is used to assess the effects of different administrations.  If significance is found, pairwise comparisons will be done to assess where the differences lie.  The assumptions are: the dependent variable must be continuous/interval and normally distributed. Normality will be checked with skewness and kurtosis values, and sphericity will be assessed through a Mauchly’s Test of Sphericity.
