# Repeated Measures ANOVA in SPSS

Earlier this week, you practiced using repeated measures ANOVA models with SPSS and, ideally, used the Collaboration Lab to ask, answer, and otherwise address any questions you had. In this Assignment, you apply what you learned to answer a social research question using Repeated Measures ANOVA.

**To prepare**

- Review the datasets provided.
- Construct a research question based on one of those datasets.
- Pay attention to the assumptions of this test, and ask, “Does it make sense to interpret the mean of this dependent variable?”

#### By Day 7

**The Assignment**

Use SPSS to answer the research question you constructed. Write an analysis in APA format, including title page, references, and an appendix, that includes your data output and addresses each of the tasks listed below. The content should be 2–3 pages, including setup of the assignment, results, and interpretation of results. Your SPSS output should be included as an appendix.

- What is the null hypothesis for your question?
- What research design(s) would align with this question?
- What dependent variable was used and how is it measured?
- What independent variable is used and how is it measured?
- If you found significance, what is the strength of the effect?
- What is the answer to your research question?
- What are the possible implications of social change?

Early in your Assignment, when you relate which dataset you analyzed, please include the mean of the following variables. If you are using the Afrobarometer Dataset, report the mean of Q1 (Age).

Instructor Notes:

Use proper APA format, citations, and referencing for your analysis, research question, and display of output.

- Title page (NO RUNNING HEAD, NO ABSTRACT)
- Text reporting the research question, which data set was used, how the analysis was done, results of any tests of assumptions, the results reported in APA format, brief interpretation of findings. Professor is a stickler for APA format. There are examples of what the results should look like for each assigned analysis in the Warner textbook. This does not have to be longer than 2 pages.
- Reference page
- Appendix which includes SPSS syntax and SPSS output
- Latin statistical symbols (e.g.,
*N, M, SD, t, p*) should be in italics. - There should be a space on each side of equals (and inequality) signs.
- Never say Sig in the writeup. The correct symbol is
*p*. - APA 7th edition
