We are currently handling some results and performing some ANOVA tests on human search performance in virtual environments using different sound systems for audio rendering. We measure the time it takes a participant to find a sound in a virtual environment, when the sound is played through different systems.
Our independent variable is "sound system" and our dependent variable is "time". All subjects have searched for a sound using all types of available systems (Within). The test is a complete test.
The problem is that when we perform an One-Way ANOVA, to see whether there is a significant difference between the time spent searching for a sound using a specific sound system, the resulting P-Value is 0.064.
But using a Two-Way Anova the P-value turns into 0.0217.
The One-Way Anova:
The Two-Way Anova:
The one you should look at is (asfactor(soundSystem)).
We expected that the two values were the same, although they are not. What are we missing here?
The tests have been performed in R.
