First time poster here...a newbie...
Im trying to work out the best way to analyse my data, and *think* that repeated measures ANOVA might be the best idea.
Im trying to determine whether there is a relationship between -
- handedness (I have a continuous variable (Z score) or a categorical variable (left, right, ambi) OR I can simply do 'preference' vs 'no preference' - realistically I'd like to look at all of these eventually).
- the first movement most commonly made in a particular situation (so again there are 4 categorical variables - no pref, left, straight, right).
- the eventual behaviour (left, middle, right)
Sorry if that is confusing - hard to describe without describing the whole study down!
Anyway, what I have done is look at the 'eventual behaviour' as the Within subjects factor (3 levels), the 'first movement' as the Between-Subject factor, and the covariate as the Z-Score (handedness)...
Does this sound like the best way to do this? Basically, I hypothesised that the handedness score will be associated with the eventual behaviour. As a secondary hypothesis I predicted that the first movement will be correlated with the eventual behaviour.
Thanks for any help!
