Review of Short Phrases and Links

    This Review contains major "Ancova"- related terms, short phrases and links grouped together in the form of Encyclopedia article.

Definitions

  1. ANCOVA is the preferred method of analyzing randomized trials with baseline and post-treatment measures. (Web site)
  2. ANCOVA is used to increase power in a one-way or two-way ANOVA by adding a second or third variable as a covariate.
  3. ANCOVA is a merger of ANOVA and regression for continuous variables. (Web site)
  4. ANCOVA was generally superior to Mann-Whitney in most situations, especially where log-transformed data were entered into the model.
  5. ANCOVA is a linear model with both factors and continuous variables on the right-hand side of the model formula. (Web site)
  6. ANCOVA is a statistical technique of controlling extraneous variables in correlational studies. (Web site)

Ancova

  1. Two null hypotheses are tested in an ancova. (Web site)
  2. ANCOVA is then used as the statistical technique to eliminate irrelevant y variance. (Web site)
  3. Using ancova is a statistical way of making it as if all the mussels were the same size, then comparing the mean AAM length of the average-sized mussel.
  4. Earlier editions are fine for ANCOVA and MANOVA.
  5. Relative quantities of mRNA from 16 different genes were evaluated using a statistical approach based on ANCOVA analysis. (Web site)

Covariates

  1. ANCOVA is highly sensitive to outliers in the covariates.
  2. ANCOVA is sensitive to multicollinearity among the covariates and also loses statistical power as redundant covariates are added to the model.
  3. If there are covariates, ANCOVA is used instead of ANOVA. Covariates are commonly used as control variables.
  4. Also, ANCOVA should be used for interval level covariates. (Web site)
  5. Remember that in ANCOVA, we in essence perform a regression analysis within each cell to partition out the variance component due to the covariates. (Web site)

Dependent

  1. If the covariate is related to the dependent in a linear manner, ANCOVA will be more powerful than ANOVA with blocking and is preferred. (Web site)
  2. ANCOVA provides a mechanism for assessing the differences in dependent variable scores after statistically controlling for the covariate. (Web site)
  3. The first step of ANCOVA is to regress the dependent variable on the covariate, ignoring group membership. (Web site)
  4. ANCOVA allows you to remove from a dependent variable ( y) irrelevant or error variance that can not be predicted from your independent variable ( x). (Web site)

Assumption

  1. This is ANCOVA's "equality of regressions" or "homogeneity of regressions" assumption.
  2. Because all of these significance levels are greater than .05, the homogeneity of regression assumption has been met and you can proceed with the ANCOVA.
  3. Alternatives to traditional ANCOVA are also presented when circumstances in which certain assumptions have not been met.
  4. ANCOVA can be used in all ANOVA designs and the same assumptions apply.

Effects

  1. In ANCOVA, we was the effect of treatments as in ANOVA where the role of "covariates" is removed.
  2. Covariate effects: In ANCOVA, covariates are interval-level independents.
  3. That is, in ANCOVA we look at the effects of the categorical independents on an interval dependent, after effects of interval covariates are controlled.
  4. A corresponding ANOVA table is constructed in which the columns are the various covariate (in ANCOVA), main, and interaction effects.
  5. The estimate of the treatment effect from ANCOVA was not importantly biased. (Web site)

Designs

  1. Mixed Model ANOVA and ANCOVA. Designs which contain random effects for one or more categorical predictor variables are called mixed-model designs. (Web site)
  2. In general, between designs which contain both categorical and continuous predictor variables can be called ANCOVA designs. (Web site)
  3. If instead all 3 of these regression coefficients are zero the traditional ANCOVA design should be used. (Web site)
  4. Do you use the same designs (between groups, repeated measures, etc.) with ANCOVA as you do with ANOVA? By and large, yes. (Web site)

Main

  1. When I understand ANCOVA and main effect better, I'll make separate entries for them.
  2. The text then goes on to cover the main designs, both independent and related ANOVA and ANCOVA, single and multi-factor designs. (Web site)

General Linear Model

  1. Univariate GLM is the version of the general linear model now often used to implement two long-established statistical procedures - ANOVA and ANCOVA.
  2. ANCOVA, or an alysis of cova riance is a general linear model with one continuous explanatory variable and one or more factors.

Experimental

  1. Designs. ANOVA and ANCOVA have a number of different experimental designs.
  2. However, ANCOVA uses the pooled correlation between y and z for all experimental groups in the design. (Web site)

Regression

  1. ANOVA and ANCOVA are well suited to gauging interaction, whereas regression models can only do so my adding explicit crossproduct interaction terms. (Web site)
  2. If the slopes are not significantly different, the next step in an ancova is to draw a regression line through each group of points, all with the same slope. (Web site)
  3. The final test in the ancova is to test the null hypothesis that all of the Y-intercepts of the regression lines with a common slope are the same.
  4. Remember that in ANCOVA, we in essence perform a regression analysis within each cell to partition out the variance component due to the covariates. (Web site)
  5. Regression Slope: ANCOVA, remember, operates on the pooled within-group regression line of y on z. (Web site)

Adjusted

  1. However, in GLM ANCOVA, the values of the factors are adjusted for interactions with the covariates.
  2. The adjusted means of cDNA levels for 27 individuals were determined for all 14 genes adjusted with ACTB and GAPD in ANCOVA analysis. (Web site)

Groups

  1. Do you use the same designs (between groups, repeated measures, etc.) with ANCOVA as you do with ANOVA? By and large, yes. (Web site)
  2. The resulting ANCOVA will verify whether there are any differences in the posttest scores of the two groups after controlling for differences in ability. (Web site)
  3. As a precursor to the ANCOVA, let us perform a between-groups t test to examine overall differences between the two groups on the final exam. (Web site)

Covariance

  1. Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) is a blending of regression and analysis of variance (Roscoe, 1975). (Web site)
  2. This model is called an analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) when one predictor variable is numeric (height) and the other is nominal (sex). (Web site)
  3. It is necessary to balance the effect of interaction in Analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) in order to avoid uncertainty among the independent variables. (Web site)
