Analysis of variance (ANOVA) is used to compare means across groups of similar individuals. ANOVA is comparing the variation of means across several samples to the variations of scores within each sample. It allows researchers to compare more than two groups, and uses the F statistic to determine statistical significance. The narrated presentation describes the F distribution and discusses ANOVA and its assumptions in more detail. The software tutorial demonstrates how to conduct a one-way ANOVA in SPSS.
