Subject:      Re: one last nested ANOVA question

Jenny and I have been over her design to a certain extent off line, but I wanted to clarify for others interested that in the general case, these kinds of issues are quite data specific, not a general function of covariates with nested designs.

One last question for the list regarding nested ANOVAs in SPSS 7.5

Could someone explain how the covariate is handled within a nested design? I noticed from running my analyses both with and without the covariate (and asking only for covariate main effects rather than factor by covariate interactions) that

1) no test of the covariate could be done 2) no parameter for the covariate is estimated 3) the covariate (as specified for main effect only) seems to affect only the main effect for the factor involving the nesting (and NOT any of the interactions with that factor).

Am I to interpret from these results that 1) I need to include all factor*covariate interactions or 2) the effect of the covariate is only interpretable for some factors

I have set up my analysis as a split plot design with 3 factors (with an additional factor nested within 1 factor) and 1 covariate.
