Key Equations for Statistics

How is sums of squares worked out for within group?
Sum (Score - mean)2
1 of 23
How is the sum of squares worked out for a between group?
(Mean of each group - Mean of Observed group)2 x N of pps in each group
2 of 23
What is the equation for total sum of squares?
TSS = SSb + SSw
3 of 23
How do you work out Mean squares?
SSW/D.F
4 of 23
What is the degrees of freedom for MS between?
The number of groups -1
5 of 23
What is the degrees of freedom for MS within?
The number of pps - Number of Groups
6 of 23
How is F worked out in an ANOVA?
Between/Within
7 of 23
What is a type 1 error?
False Positive
8 of 23
What is a type 2 error?
False Negative
9 of 23
What is the equation for the scheffe test?
(Mean of first sample - Mean of second sample)2/Within group variance (1/first sample + 1/second sample)
10 of 23
Simplified way to work out scheffe
Square mean difference, then multiply it by number of participants, then divide by 2: Then this is divided by the Mean square Within: This is the reported scheffe
11 of 23
What is the equation for a tukey test?
HSD = Square root (MS within/number of pps in group)
12 of 23
Then what?
Compare this number with the different means, anything lower than this figure, is not significant
13 of 23
What is the equation for a t-test?
Mean of group 1 - mean of group 2 / 2 x Square root (Ms error/n)
14 of 23
How is the critical value of t found for multiple comparisons in the t-test?
P= 0.05/c
15 of 23
What does C stand for?
Number of comparisons: Also known as the bonferroni correction test
16 of 23
What is the four assumptions for the F ratio?
Independence, random sampling, homogeneity of variance and normality
17 of 23
What is the equation for a Z score?
Z=Skew-0/SESkew
18 of 23
How do you work out the SEskew?
Square root(6/N)
19 of 23
What is the Z score associated with?
If Skew is greater than 1.96 then the sample is significantly different from normal
20 of 23
What is a positive skew?
Higher than 1.96
21 of 23
What is a negative skew?
Negatively higher than negative 1.96
22 of 23
What is Eta squared?
N2 = SStreatment/SStotal
