Cronbach’s alpha is the most common measure of reliability. It is commonly used when we have multiple Likert questions in a survey/questionnaire that form a scale and Read more about CRONBACH’S ALPHA TEST[…]

TWO-WAY ANOVA

TWO-WAY ANOVA A two-way ANOVA is used when there is the presence of an additional variable affecting the relationship between the independent and dependent variable. The additional variable, so comes into view is treated as second independent variable. Two-way ANOVA investigates the sources of variations arising in the mean values of dependent variable due to Read more about TWO-WAY ANOVA[…]

One-way ANOVA is particularly used when there is only one independent variable and one dependent variable. The dependent variable Read more about ONE WAY ANOVA[…]

ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE (ANOVA)

ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE (ANOVA) INTRODUCTION Analysis of variance (ANOVA) is a statistical method for making simultaneous comparisons between two or more means of a dependent variable affected by numerous factors of an independent variable.  It investigates the causes of differences occurring in the mean values of two or more populations under study. The null hypothesis for Read more about ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE (ANOVA)[…]
