A Visualization Tool for One- and Two-Way Analysis of Variance
Sturm-Beiss, Rachel
Journal of Statistics Education, v13 n1 Mar 2005
Analysis of variance (ANOVA), a technique included in many introductory statistics courses, analyzes the relationship between a quantitative dependent variable and one or more independent qualitative variables. The nature of the relationship is expressed in a model with unknown parameters. Many textbooks emphasize the mechanics of the technique while the model and its parameters remain abstractions or theoretical entities. We introduce a Java Applet that allows a student to profitably explore the features and factors of one and two-way ANOVA tables together with representational models and model parameters. (Contains 2 figures.)
