I would like to test the following hypothesis:
High trait anxiety, depressive traits, and fear of movement will be higher, whilst optimism will be lower, for group 1 (patients) as compared group 2 (healthy controls).
My idea on how to test the hypothesis: Conduct a RM ANOVA with group type (patients/controls) as between factor, whilst questionnaire scores (5 different questionnaires) will act as within factor.
My question: would this be a feasible and correct way of statistical analysis? I'm a little uncertain at this point in time.
Thanks in advance. Kind regards, Jeroen
