For my Master thesis I looked at behavioral responses of fish by quantifying their position as a reaction to a certain treatment.
I have 20 Fish that I measured on 7 consecutive days. Every day, each individual got to see all 4 Treatments once.
The variable I measured is categorical (Zone 1, Zone 2, Zone 3). Since I measured each fish with each treatment 7 times, i have repeated measures. But with categorical data... How do I do this? What Test can I use? Usually I would take the mean "something" (lets say the mean distance) per Fish and get one independent data point per fish, but categorical data confuses me... I can't take the mean "Zone".
My Supervisor wants me to use JMP for data analysis (eventhough I'd prefer SPSS).
If any of you knows a test I can use, I'd appreciate your help! I see this has been a familar poblem in the past (judging from what I find on the internet so far).
