Hi Fritz,

Run the analysis once (without /TEST subcommands), and copy the value for error SS and df, then repeat the analysis with the /TEST subcommand indicating the SS and the df in parenthesis. For example:

UNIANOVA sibs BY sex /METHOD = SSTYPE(3) /INTERCEPT = INCLUDE /CRITERIA = ALPHA(.05) /TEST = sex vs 13892.577 df (1503) /DESIGN = sex .

This code will test the SEX effect against an error term=13892.577/1503=9.243



FC> I am using GLM/UNIANOVA with a model that contains fixed and random FC> effects (there are some specific reasons why I don’t want to use the FC> MIXED procedure). I would like to force SPSS to use the MSError as the FC> error term for testing the significance of some model terms. I have FC> tried to use the syntax shown below, but I get an error message that the FC> word ‘Error’ is not allowed in the /TEST subcommand, possibly because FC> ‘Error’ is not a term listed in the /DESIGN subcommand.

FC> Can anyone tell me if it is possible to force SPSS to use the MSError FC> term for testing hypotheses in GLM/UNIANOVA.

FC> UNIANOVA FC> Sour BY Product Rep Judge FC> /RANDOM = Rep Judge FC> /METHOD = SSTYPE(3) FC> /INTERCEPT = INCLUDE FC> /POSTHOC = Product ( TUKEY ) FC> /CRITERIA = ALPHA(.10) FC> /TEST = judge VS Error FC> /TEST = rep VS Error FC> /DESIGN = Rep Judge Product Judge*Rep Product*Rep Judge*Product .
