Anova1 Demonstration

###
How do I do the Anova1 Demonstration?

1. Choose Anova1 Demonstration from the main menu.

2. The computer will prompt you to hit any key when you're ready.

###
What will I see in the Anova1 Demonstration?

You will be presented with 16 targets (8 faster-moving, and 8 slower-moving),
which consist of 3 embedded squares. You must try to "hit" the targets with
your mouse, one at a time. To "hit" the target, place the cursor on
any part of the square and press the left key of your mouse. If you
hit the target in the innermost square, you will earn 25 points, if you hit
the target in the middle square, you will earn 15 points, and if you hit
the target in the outermost square, you will earn 5 points. (Of course,
if you miss the target completely, you will score 0 points.)

You will be given a practice session, and then a second, data-collection
session. In the second session, your scores are collected and used
as data in a 1-way (speed) Analysis of Variance. In this demonstration,
the target speed in the independent variable, or factor. The dependent
variable is your score. The purpose of the Anova1 is to determine if
the manipulation of the independent variable (speed) works, i.e., if the
mean of your slower target scores is different (in this case, higher) from
the mean of your faster target scores.

Purpose of the Anova1 Demonstration

This demonstration gives you an opportunity to collect data quickly, and
to use this data to practice solving 1-way ANOVAs. You may even find
that with a lot of practice, your scores in each of the conditions are no
longer significantly different. (You may also find, with a lot of practice,
that you can compute F statistics with minimum anxiety, and maximum confidence.)
