2. Repeated Measures ANOVA. Perform a repeated measures ANOVA using the "High_School_Scores.sav" data set. You will use Score_0 through Score_12 as your repeated measure (7 levels), and gender as a fixed factor.
a. Is the assumption of sphericity violated? How can you tell? What does this mean in the context of interpreting the results?
b. Is there a main effect of gender? If so, explain the effect. Use post hoc tests when necessary (or explain why they are not required in this specific case).
c. Is there a main effect time (i.e., an increase in scores from Week 0 to Week 12)? If so, explain the effect. Use post hoc tests when necessary (or explain why they are not required in this specific case). Examine the output carefully, and give as much detail as possible in your findings.
d. Write up the results in APA style and interpret them. Be sure that you discuss both main effects and the presence/absence of an interaction between the two.
This solution provides the calculations for the repeated measure ANOVA with the help of SPSS.
