11. Factorial Design

Activity: A 2×3 Factorial ANOVA calculation and interpretation: From Data Through Follow-Up Tests and Conclusions

This assignment utilizes the Teach Psych Science resource Summary steps for conducting a Factorial ANOVA: From data through follow up tests and conclusions to calculate and interpret a 2X3 factorial ANOVA data set from scratch (all hand calculations). A research scenario and data are provided. Click here for the activity.

Practice: Two-Way (Factorial) ANOVA

In this activity, students will take data from a fictitious 2 x 2 factorial design to practice conducting a Two-Way (Factorial) Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). First, provide students with the research scenario and the accompanying questions to have them determine the research design, statistical analysis to use, and independent and dependent variables. Next, have students

Exemplar Study: Texting to Ostracize (Factorial Design)

This study sought to determine if a woman’s appearance influences perceptions of her ability to perform a job. Undergraduates rated photographs of women as part of a 2 (Career: office assistant vs. CEO ) X 2 (Appearance: professional attire vs. sexual attire) design. Participants rated photos along several dimensions such as grade point average, organizational

Lecture Slides: The Pepsi Challenge (Factorial Design Demonstration)

In this demonstration/activity (with PowerPoint slides) eight student volunteers have the opportunity to provide taste ratings for soda.  Instructors would need to provide cups and soda (usually a 16 oz bottle of each type of soda is enough). Type of soda can vary, but students seem to like the Pepsi vs. Coke dynamic. Another fun

Activities focus on the following topics: (TWO-WAY ANOVA) Do People Judge Physical Distances of Locations Based on Their Psychological Orientation Toward Them? Here students get to conduct a two-way (factorial) ANOVA, tests for the interaction, and create a figure. (MIXED ANOVA) Do People Underestimate the Pleasure of Remembering Ordinary vs. Extraordinary Events? Here students get

Online Activity: Factorial Design Concepts Review

This interactive application (created by Dr. Marcie Desrochers and Dr. Sara Margolin) provides supplemental instruction on factorial research designs that students enrolled in a Statistics or Research Methods course in psychology can complete as homework or on their own. It consists of 10 pages of definitions, examples, and images, and 11 quiz questions that help
