I am writing a resesarch proposal, and I thought I was going to conduct a 2 x 3 mixed ANOVA, followed by a pearson's correlation co-efficient and a multiple regression analysis -and this was okayed by my supervisor. However, I have now read information that has thoughroughly confused me, making me think 1) may need to run a MANOVA (I haven't ever calculated one of these before) and that I may just need to run a regression rather than multiple regresson.

My Variables are as follows

1 between participants independent variable (2 levels dyslexia and no dyslexia)

2 Within participants dependent variables (A- 1 level) (B- 2 Levels x & y).

I have hypothesised that People with dyslexia will report higher A than those without dyslexia.

People with dyslexia will show worse performance in both x and y

There will be negative correlations between A and B (both x and y)

x will be a better predictor of A in both groups

this will effect will be stronger for those people with dyslexia

I thank you in advance for your time. I have tried to work this out but I am getting nowhere- and it doesn't help when someone has said that you are right.
