Your DV will appear in the Dependent List window. When you see this, click the Options button.

 

 

One-Way ANOVA: Options box

 

This box will appear with a variety of options. Click the check boxes next to Descriptive, Homogeneity of Variance and Means plot.

 

 

You will see checks

 

When you click each box, a check will appear to indicate that it has been selected. Check the Descriptives and Homogeneity of variance boxes. Click the Continue button when finished.

Back to the One-Way ANOVA box

 

You will see this box again. Click the Post Hoc button.

 

 

One-Way ANOVA: Post Hoc Multiple Comparisons box

 

This will appear. You will see many options. These options represent various types of tests that you can conduct. Select at least one option from the Equal Variances Assumed area and at least one option from the Equal Variances Not Assumed area. To select an option, click on the box next to the name and a check will appear.

Our Example

 

For this example experiment, I will choose Tukey from the Equal Variances Assumed area. That is a popular choice. I will choose Dunnett’s T3 from the Equal Variances not Assumed area. Your professor may ask you to choose a different test and that’s ok too. These tests vary in terms of how strict they are. Click the Continue button when you are finished.

 

Back to the One-Way ANOVA box

 

In this box, click the OK button and wait a few moments for processing.

 


 

You will see results

 

You will probably see so much information that you will have to scroll down the right hand side to see it all.

 

 

Save the results

 

To a meaningful place with a meaningful name. I decided to call this example file “Effect of Various Amounts of Sugar on Words Remembered Output.spo.”
