    ANOVA on different metrics




    Hi everyone! Hoping you can help me with a question. I am doing a paper for university.
    I did a test on a group of people so as to measure their performance. Now I have specific targets for each task and the actuals.
    The metrics are Time spent on the task, number of clicks and number of scrolls.
    I was thinking of using ANOVA to compare those but I am wondering if I can since I am using a different kind of metrics and formats (time is in minutes, clicks and scroll are n number of times). My table looks like this:

    Target Website A Website B Website C
    Time 00:34 01:30 01:41 01:51
    Clicks 12 16 13.5 11.87
    Scroll 1 2.5 6.9 3

    Is it possible to use ANOVA for all of them together or I would have to do a comparison only for time, another one for clicks and another one for scrolls?
    Thanks a lot
    Pablo

    Sounds like you want to do a MANOVA.
    I don't have emotions and sometimes that makes me very sad.

    Thanks Dason, I am going to try that.
    And if I want to compare within groups the 3 actuals, how can I do?
    I have a same group of people that they all did 3 different tasks. Task A had 27 secs, Task B took 23 secs, and task C took 21 secs.
    Not sure what to do to prove if there is a significant difference between them or not
    thanks

    Do you only have a single observation for each task
