Subject: Re: Can I use time and gender as covariates in Ancova?

In addition to the advice you have received thus far, let me suggest
you consider employing a linear MIXED model instead of an general
linear model. I am making this suggestion since each participant was
measured on the outcome of interest three times. It isn't uncommon to
observe residuals obtained from observations closer in time to be more
highly correlated than residuals obtained from more distant
observations. Thus, an autoregressive residual correlation structure
may be in order. In addition to decaying residual correlations, it's
possible to have subject specific intercepts. Both specifications can
be made via the MIXED procedure in SPSS. Whether these specifications
substantially improve model fit can be examined.
