Post-hoc tests, pairwise or other linear contrasts, are typical in an analysis of variance (ANOVA) setting to understand which group means differ. They incorporate p-value adjustments to avoid concluding that group means differ when they actually do not. There are several adjustments that can be considered for conducting multiple post-hoc tests, including single-step and stepwise adjustments.

post hoc test
of a type 1 error somewhere in the family of tests you’re running is actually higher than the alpha=.05 you’re using for any given test.
This is a complicated and controversial issue in statistics — even statisticians argue about whether it’s a problem, when it’s a problem, and what to do about it.
In this webinar, we’ll talk about the meaning and consequences of these issues so you can make informed decisions in your data analysis.
We’ll also go through possible solutions, including post-hoc tests and the false discovery rate.

There are two ways to run a repeated measures analysis.The traditional way is to treat it as a multivariate test–each response is considered a separate variable.The other way is to it as a mixed model.While the multivariate approach is easy to run and quite intuitive, there are a number of advantages to running a repeated measures analysis as a mixed model.
First I will explain the difference between the approaches, then briefly describe some of the advantages of using the mixed models approach. [Read more…] about Five Advantages of Running Repeated Measures ANOVA as a Mixed Model
The beauty of the Univariate GLM procedure in SPSS is that it is so flexible. You can use it to analyze regressions, ANOVAs, ANCOVAs with all sorts of interactions, dummy coding, etc.
The down side of this flexibility is it is often confusing what to put where and what it all means.
So here’s a quick breakdown.
The dependent variable I hope is pretty straightforward. Put in your continuous dependent variable.
Fixed Factors are categorical independent variables. It does not matter if the variable is [Read more…] about SPSS GLM: Choosing Fixed Factors and Covariates
