My research design is as follows:
I have these Between Subjects IVs:
Experiment Condition - 5 levels
Facebook User status - 2 levels (yes/no)
My supervisor also wants me to see if there are significant effects of:
Gender - 2 levels
Relationship Status - 2 levels
Relationship Satisfaction - 2 levels
And these within subjects IVs:
Mood at Time 1
Mood at Time 2
I also have three DVs
Frequency of Thought
I am looking at the effect of a certain condition on Facebook users, vs non Facebook users. Within this I want to look at whether there are differences between the genders; whether there is a difference between people in a relationship vs. not in a relationship and the effect of relationship satisfaction. It's a big study, but I'm not sure about how to describe the design.
- How should I describe the design of this study?
I'm thinking it has to be a MANOVA design, however what I am finding confusing are the various IVs. Is it a 2 x 5 Factorial MANOVA? I'm just so confused with all the IVs flying around.
