# Mixed Designs: Between and Within Mixed Designs: Between and Within Psy 420 Ainsworth Mixed Between and Within Designs Conceptualizing the Design Types of Mixed Designs Assumptions Analysis Deviation Computation Higher order mixed designs Breaking down significant effects Conceptualizing the Design This is a very popular design because you are combining the benefits of each design Requires that you have one between groups IV and one within subjects IV Often called Split-plot designs, which comes from agriculture In the simplest 2 x 2 design you would have Conceptualizing the Design In the simplest 2 x 2 design you would have subjects randomly assigned to one of two groups, but each group would experience 2 conditions (measurements) GRE - before GRE - after

Conceptualizing the Design Advantages First, it allows generalization of the repeated measures over the randomized groups levels Second, reduced error (although not as reduced as purely WS) due to the use of repeated measures Disadvantages The addition of each of their respective complexities Conceptualizing the Design Types of Mixed Designs Other than the mixture of any number of BG IVs and any number of WS IVs Pretest Posttest Mixed Design to control for testing effects Assumptions Normality of Sampling Distribution of the BG IVs Applies to the case averages (averaged over the WS levels) Homogeneity of Variance Applies to every level or combination of levels of the BG IV(s) Assumptions Independence, Additivity, Sphericity Independence applies to the BG error term But each WS error term confounds random

variability with the subjects by effects interaction So we need to test for sphericity instead; the test is on the average variance/covariance matrix (over the levels of the BG IVs) Assumptions Outliers Look for them in each cell of the design Missing data Causes the same problems that they did in the BG and WS designs separately Data points missing across the WS part can be estimated as discussed previously Missing data in the randomized groups part causes non-orthogonality Analysis Within Groups b1 b2 b3 Randomized Groups a1 a2 a3 S1 S1 S1 S2

Example Books by Month Example: Imagine if we designed the previous research study concerning reading different novels over time But instead of having everyone read all of the books for three months we randomly assign subjects to three different books and have them read for three months S1 B: Month b1: b2: b3: Month 1 Month 2 Month 3 Case Means 1 3 6 S1 = 3.333 S2 1 4 8

SS( reg . X j ) MS S / AB Breaking down significant effects Within Groups Variables If a WG main effect is significant it also needs to be followed by comparisons WG comparisons differ from BG variables in that a separate error term needs to be generated for each comparison Instead of the Fcomp formula you would actually rearrange the data into a new data set Breaking down significant effects Example Breaking down significant effects B b1 b3 S1 1 6 S1 = 7 S2 1
