One-way Analysis of Variance Single Independent Variable Between-Subjects Design
Logic of the Analysis of Variance Null hypothesis H 0 : Population means equalNull hypothesis H 0 : Population means equal 1 = Alternative hypothesis: H 1Alternative hypothesis: H 1 XNot all population means equal. Cont.
Logic--cont. Create a measure of variability among group meansCreate a measure of variability among group means XMs groups (accurate est. of pop. var. if null true) Create a measure of variability within groupsCreate a measure of variability within groups XMS error (accurate est. of pop. var. regardless of whether null is true) Cont.
Logic--cont. Form ratio of MS groups /MS errorForm ratio of MS groups /MS error XRatio approximately 1 if null true XRatio significantly larger than 1 if null false X“approximately 1” can actually be as high as 2 or 3, but not much higher

Degrees of Freedom (df ) Number of “observations” free to varyNumber of “observations” free to vary Xdf total = N - 1 Variability of N observationsVariability of N observations Xdf groups = g - 1 variability of g meansvariability of g means Xdf error = g (n - 1) n observations in each group = n - 1 dfn observations in each group = n - 1 df times g groupstimes g groups
Conclusions The F for groups is significant.The F for groups is significant. XWe would obtain an F of this size, when H 0 true, less than one time out of XThe difference in group means cannot be explained by random error. XThe number of trials to learn reversal depends on level of epinephrine. Cont.
Conclusions--cont. The injection of epinephrine following learning appears to consolidate that learning.The injection of epinephrine following learning appears to consolidate that learning. High doses may have negative effect.High doses may have negative effect.
Unequal Sample Sizes With one-way, no particular problemWith one-way, no particular problem XMultiply mean deviations by appropriate n i as you go XThe problem is more complex with more complex designs, as shown in next chapter.

Multiple Comparisons Significant F only shows that not all groups are equalSignificant F only shows that not all groups are equal XWe want to know what groups are different. Such procedures are designed to control familywise error rate.Such procedures are designed to control familywise error rate. XFamilywise error rate defined XContrast with per comparison error rate
More on Error Rates Most tests reduce significance level ( ) for each t test.Most tests reduce significance level ( ) for each t test. The more tests we run the more likely we are to make Type I error.The more tests we run the more likely we are to make Type I error. XGood reason to hold down number of tests
Fisher’s LSD Procedure Requires significant overall F, or no testsRequires significant overall F, or no tests Run standard t tests between pairs of groups.Run standard t tests between pairs of groups. XOften we replace s 2 j or pooled estimate with MS error from overall analysis It is really just a pooled error term, but with more degrees of freedom--pooled across all treatment groups.It is really just a pooled error term, but with more degrees of freedom--pooled across all treatment groups.
Bonferroni t Test Run t tests between pairs of groups, as usualRun t tests between pairs of groups, as usual XHold down number of t tests XReject if t exceeds critical value in Bonferroni table Works by using a more strict value of for each comparisonWorks by using a more strict value of for each comparison Cont.

Assumptions--cont. Analysis of variance is generally robust to first twoAnalysis of variance is generally robust to first two XA robust test is one that is not greatly affected by violations of assumptions.
Magnitude of Effect Eta squared ( 2 )Eta squared ( 2 ) XEasy to calculate XSomewhat biased on the high side XFormula See slide #33See slide #33 XPercent of variation in the data that can be attributed to treatment differences Cont.
Magnitude of Effect--cont. Omega squared ( 2 )Omega squared ( 2 ) Much less biased than 2 XNot as intuitive XWe adjust both numerator and denominator with MS error XFormula on next slide
2 and 2 for Foa, et al. 2 =.18: 18% of variability in symptoms can be accounted for by treatment 2 =.18: 18% of variability in symptoms can be accounted for by treatment 2 =.12: This is a less biased estimate, and note that it is 33% smaller. 2 =.12: This is a less biased estimate, and note that it is 33% smaller.
Other Measures of Effect Size We can use the same kinds of measures we talked about with t tests.We can use the same kinds of measures we talked about with t tests. Usually makes most sense to talk about 2 groups at a time, rather than a measure averaged over several groups.Usually makes most sense to talk about 2 groups at a time, rather than a measure averaged over several groups.
