    help with SPSS output and repeated measures ANCOVA and MANCOVA




    Hi, I was wondering if someone could recommend a good text on how to interpret SPSS output for repeated measures ANCOVA and MANCOVA (or maybe someone could walk me through it)? I am not sure which tables to look at and am concerned I will be reporting the wrong stats. For example, I am running a 2 (group: experimental, control) x 2 (time: pre, post) repeated measure ANCOVA and am not sure which table to look at for my time factor. There is a multivariate table that gets reported right up front that gives me statistics for my Time factor (which is not significant by the way) and the time x group interaction. And then, under the subheading Time later in the output there is another multivariate table that gives me the stats for my time factor, but it is different from the other table and significant! Ugh! Any help would be most welcome. Thanks!

    It's true, the SPSS output for GLM repeated measures gives you a lot of "stuff" that you don't need.

    Two sources I suggest: The ATS Computing group at UCLA website

    A good book is Green & Salkind's.

    You can get links to both on my SPSS resources page: http://www.analysisfactor.com/resources/spss.html

    My favorite book is SPSS for Introductory and Intermediate Statistics: SPSS for Intermediate Statistics: Use and Interpretation. It walks you through the basic concepts of the statistical tests, shows you how to do them in SPSS, and then highlights what the output means and provides a sample APA write up for each test.
