Your Answer:
Output 2 – Bartlett’s Test of Sphericity and Bi-Variate Correlations

Output 6 – Estimated Marginal Means
11. Interpret the meaning of the confidence intervals reported here in general – what do these intervals tell us? (2 points)
Your Answer:
12. Do the 95% confidence interval bands overlap for depression? Why or why not? (2 points)
Your Answer:
13. Do the 95% confidence interval bands overlap for anxiety? Why or why not? (2 points)
Your Answer:
Article Assignment 2 – MANOVA
Directions: You can work independently or in pairs on this assignment. There are two parts to this assignment: Part 1 asks you questions related to the data analyses and results of a scholarly journal article employing a MANOVA Part 2 asks you to generate your own research questions requiring a Mixed ANOVA and one-way MANOVA.
Article: Mahmoodabadi et al. (2012)
1. What research question did the researchers test using a MANOVA? (2 pts.)
2. What was the composite DV? (1 pt.)
3. Did the authors provide evidence to treat the DV as a composite? (2 pts.)
4. List the independent variable(s) in the model. (2 pts.)
5. In 1-2 sentences, explain why MANOVA was the correct analysis of choice. (2 pts.)
6. What is the advantage of running a MANOVA compared to a series of ANOVAs? (2 pts.)
7. Why do the authors test if there is a difference between the experimental and control group on the dimensions of Family function (p. 260)? (2 pts.)
8. Did the distribution of scores meet the assumption of normality? Provide evidence to support your answer. (2 pts.)
9. At what significance level did the experimental and control group significantly differ on the DVs? (1 pt.)
10. Why are the experimental group’s adjusted mean values in table 2 lower than the control group if they were the group who significantly improved? (2 pts.)
11. Was the observed power high enough to detect statistical significance? That is, did it meet the acceptable criterion? Provide evidence to support your answer. (2 pts.)
12. In 3-5 sentences, explain two ways this research contributed to the field. (3 pts.)

1. What research question did the researchers test using a MANOVA? (2 pts.)

Effectiveness of retraining attribution styles on control and treatment groups of couples which applicants for divorce, in several family functioning aspects pre-test and post-test.

2. What was the composite DV? (1 pt.)

Pre-test and post-test results of a questionnaire, filled by participants of both groups.

3. Did the authors provide evidence to treat the DV as a composite? (2 pts.)

No. only indication of normality of the IV's. Also, there's no reference to Bartlett's test that test's linearity.

4. List the independent variable(s) in the model. (2 pts.)

Control/Treatment group (only 1 IV).

5. In 1-2 sentences, explain why MANOVA was the correct analysis of choice. (2 pts.)

It has 2 unrelated groups...
