I have a repeated measures design (all subjects were in all conditions) with 4 conditions and a dv that can take 4 values (0 - 3). It was suggested to me to analyze this as a MANOVA and define the dv to reflect the manipulations:
Condition Subject Y(1,1) Y(1,2) Y(2,1) Y(2,2) 1 2 n define: D1 = (Y(1,1) + Y(1.2) - Y(2,1) - Y(2,2)) D2 = (Y(1,1) - Y(1.2) + Y(2,1) - Y(2,2)) D3 = (Y(1,1) - Y(1.2) - Y(2,1) + Y(2,2))
and run a MANOVA with these 3 variable (each of which can take values between - 6 to 6). The first and second variables test the two main effects and the 3rd tests the interaction.
I ran this analysis but am confused as to how to interpret the results. What do the different outcomes (-6 to 6) indicate about the groups?
