From David Howell's Stat Text.

t = [(F-1)*Sqrt(n-2)]/[(2*Sqrt(F(1-r squared)))].


df for this t is n-2. F = largest variance divided by the smallest variance r = correlation between the matched or pair scors. Check t for sign. If it is not significant than you can safely conclude that you have met the equal variances assumption for the dependent t -test.

>>> Michael Schuler <> 07/16/06 8:48 AM >>> Dear List,

I want to compare the variances of two related samples, but i don't know the statistical test to do this job. In other Words, I'm looking for a Levene-Test for dependent samples. Could someone tell me the solution? I couldn't find an answer in my statistic books.

Thanks all,
