Subject: Re: MANOVA vs. Repeated Measures ANOVA
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
I have 5 DV (i.e., student GPA, number of disciplinary referrals, days a
student was absent from school, etc.). These DVs were measures twice
(the beginning of the semester and at the end). My IV is level of
participation in program activiteis. I used Repeated Measures ANOVA.
The reviewers of the manuscript made the following comment:
Why MANOVAs (vs ANOVA) were not conducted to account for the
correlations (relatedness) between dependent variables?
Can anybody help and explain when it is more appropriate to use MANOVA
Thank you in advance,
