PSY 870: Module 6 Problem Set


Factorial (2 ? 3) MANOVA


This study investigates whether there are differences in the outcomes of three different


treatments for anxiety. The treatment conditions that are compared are treatment with


medication, treatment with psychotherapy, and placebo (inactive pills). In addition, we want to


see if gender of the client moderates the effects of the treatment. Every participant had been


diagnosed with similar types and severity of anxiety disorders when they entered the study. Each


participant was randomly assigned only to one of the three treatment conditions. After 12-weeks


of treatment (or placebo), all participants completed two questionnaires to measure worry and


general emotion. The higher the scores on these measures, the higher the anxiety level of the






The factorial MANOVA will combine what you have learned previously about


1. Post hoc tests when you have more than two groups on an IV (one-way ANOVA),


2. Main effects and interactions (factorial ANOVA), and


3. Working with multivariate analyses of multiple DVs (one-way MANOVA).


Using the SPSS data file for Module 6 (located in Topic Materials), answer the following




1. What are the independent variables in this study? What are the dependent variables?


2. Why is a factorial MANOVA appropriate to use for this research design?


3. Did you find any errors that the researcher made when setting up the SPSS data file (don't


forget to check the variable view)? If so, what did you find? How did you correct it?




Yes, there are coding errors for Measures.


4. Perform Initial Data Screening. What did you find regarding missing values, univariate


outliers, multivariate outliers, normality?




Revisit instructions from last module's readings on how to compute Mahalanobis


distance and then analyze for multivariate outliers.



5. Perform a factorial MANOVA on the data. Before interpreting the multivariate results of


the MANOVA, check outcomes that test other assumptions for this statistic: equality of


covariance matrices (see Box's Test) and sufficient correlation among the DVs (see


Bartlett's Test of Sphericity). Also check the results of the Levene's Test of Equality of


Error Variances to evaluate that assumption for the univariate ANOVAs that are run and


show in the Tests of Between-Subjects Effects output. What have you found about


whether the data meet these additional assumptions for the MANOVA and follow-up


ANOVAs? Explain.






Once in the Options box, remember to check box for "Residual SSCP matrix"


to get results for the Bartlett's test.





Also, remember to ask for post hoc tests for Treatment because there are more


than two conditions. Profile plots also help with visualizing interactions.



6. What are the outcomes of the multivariate tests (main effects and interaction)? Report


either the Pillai's Trace or Wilks's Lambda for each result, as well as the associated Fvalue and its statistical significance. Use the following format for notation to report each


result: Pillai's Trace OR Wilks' lambda = ____; F(df, df) = ____, p = ____.






Use Pillai's trace if there are problems with heterogeneity of variancecovariance matrices for the DVs. Otherwise, Wilks' lambda is fine.





Eta squared cannot be calculated from the information provided in the


multivariate tests results.



7. Given the results of the multivariate tests, would you now move on to interpret the results


of the Tests of Between-Subjects Tests? If yes, what are the results and what do they


mean? (Report each of the results using the format of F(df, df) = _____, p = _____ , 2 =




8. Because one IV has more than two conditions, you would need to do post hoc tests if the


overall F-value was statistically significant. If so, what results did you find?


9. If you had a significant interaction effect, what follow-up tests do you need to perform to


understand how gender moderates the effects of treatment? What are the results?


10. Citing the results of your statistical analyses, what is the conclusion you can draw (and


support) regarding research question that was posed in this research (see problem
