### Analyze Data: independent measures design ANOVA; repeated-measures design: Four separate experiments investigated the effect of three postulated amnestic agents on memory for a simple rote learning task. Analyze your data set with an independent measures design ANOVA. Analyze the data sets you were assigned again, but this time treat it as data from a repeated-measures design.
