    Which Test for Comparing a Group Pre and Post




    A group of people have participated in a program
    That group of people have completed a questionnaire pre and post program
    Because it is a questionnaire there are multiple questions that needed to be answered
    Each question has multiple choices (using a likert scale) but always the same choices for each question (e.g., almost never, sometimes, often, almost always)
    I want to see if there is a significant difference in the group's answers between pre and post program

    Am I to use ANOVA?

    So you've got ordinal scaled items (NOT Likert scales; Likert scales are composed of 2 or more Likter-type items), measured pre and post. You could use the "nonparametric" sign test for this.

    I agree with Karabiner, but I will provide a little more information. You will find the difference of the two measures (coded 1-4, and subtracting pre from post value).
