I'm doing a research project for university and am trying to figure out how I should be interpreting my between-group effect in my mixed ANOVA.
My within-subjects variable is time and my between-group variable is game group. I’m testing the impact between two mobile games on a person's general well-being over time. My hypothesis is “Pokémon Go will have a greater effect on improving the player’s life satisfaction, social functioning, and depressive/anxiety symptoms when compared to players of Candy Crush”
Am I right in thinking that any significant difference in the between-group effect is irrelevant to this research question if there’s no significant effect of time or significant interaction?
Please let me know if you need any more info.
