Please forgive my naiveity at this but I'm involved in a charity project and came across this website as I am currently trying to analyse safety data (that I have collected doing a simulator study) for a charity and time is running out so I'm struggling to work it out on my own. I am having problems (despite taking out some books from the local library on statistics) in selecting which is the correct method for what I want to find out - it has been some time since I have had to analyse data.
If I explain the problem I would be so incredibly grateful if anyone is able to help!
I have 30 participants who each took part in 6 scenarios. The scenarios were in fact grouped 1, 2, 3 with different starting positions and speeds and then 4 was identical to 1, 5 to 2, and, 6 to 3, but some additional information was read out to the group before starting the last 3 scenarios - hence I think this is a condition on 3 independent variables? (this is from my reading so I hope I'm not confused already!).
The data I have recorded is 1. a distance in metres and 2. a force of impact (I think 2 dependent variables?)
I want to compare whether there is a significant difference of these two datasets between individuals doing 123 and individuals doing 456 initially.
Then I need to find out if there is significant difference between scenarios 1 and 4, 2 and 5, 3 and 6 if that makes sense - i.e. if the condition had an effect and in what direction that effect was i.e. longer/shorter distance and more/less force of impact.
I hope that is enough information to point me in the right direction...and thank you so much in advance if you are able to offer any help!
