This one-day course will introduce delegates to the basic principles of ANOVA, and how to choose, run, interpret, and report a variety of ANOVA models. The course takes a hands-on approach to learning, with SPSS software used for demonstration and practice throughout.
Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) is a branch of statistical analysis used for comparing numerical data between groups and categories, with the flexibility to increase model size and complexity, and control for other numeric variables. The underlying principles of ANOVA are introduced and the extensions and applications of this type of statistical analysis are discussed.
This is a practical course that takes a hands-on look at the types of ANOVA models available in SPSS within the General Linear Model (GLM) function. The structure, application and interpretation of the following models will be covered:
- One-way ANOVA
- Factorial ANOVA
- Univariate ANOVA
- Multivariate ANOVA
- Repeated measures ANOVA
The conceptual basis of
this course is applicable to other statistical packages, but practical elements
of the course are conducted using SPSS and example datasets are provided for
all delegates to perform analyses on. Basic knowledge of SPSS and introductory statistics (e.g., p-values, confidence intervals) is desirable.
The course will take place in a cluster room, with access to a computer and version 21 of SPSS throughout the day. Delegates are welcome to bring their own laptops if preferred, but everyone wishing to bring their own computer must ensure the software is licenced before attending. Where possible, we recommend using a recent version of SPSS (e.g., 19-21) for maximum compatibility with the notes provided during the course.
All CASC courses take place in central London, in or close to the Institute of Child Health. Specific details of the course venue will be supplied after registration.
