    What statistical test should I use to test for statistical significance?




    Hello fellow members,

    I haven't been using statistics for a long time and I have trouble recalling statistical tests and their use. I hope you can help me with your knowledge.

    I have conducted a study (survey) to investigate if our different leadership programs (4 programs in total) using a specific strength-based approach have the desired effect on people. More specifically, each participant received the same questions (27 in total) but they were exposed to the strength-based approach through different leadership programs. The results shows that participants in certain leadership programs show higher agreement with the effectiveness of the strength-based approach than others. But now I try to find out if the difference between the groups are statistically significant.

    Does anyone has any suggestion as to what statistical model/test would serve me best?

    Thanks very much in advance,
    Tanja

    The answer very much depends on your sample
    size (crucial information), and the scale of your
    dependent measurement. If sample size is large
    enough and scale was interval, then you could
    perform a oneway analysis of variance as a
    global test. If the global test shows an effect
    of group, post-hoc tests for pairwise comparisons
    could be performed.

    If participants were not randomly allocated to
    groups, then maybe some additional information
    should be taken into account.

    With kind regards

    K.
