Open Seminar Presented by Stats Central
Title: Analysis of Pretest-Posttest Data: It’s not as straightforward as you might think!
Speaker: Dr Nancy Briggs, Senior Statistical Consultant and Manager, Stats Central.
Experimental designs comparing group differences in change over two time points are common in many areas of research. A pre-post design is a simple way to test the effect of an intervention on mean outcomes but the statistical analysis does pose some questions for the researcher.
This talk outlines some options available to analyse two-group, pre-post data, including repeated measures analysis of variance, analysis of covariance, change scores and mixed models.
