## Repeated measures ANOVA in R Exercises

One way, two way and n way ANOVA are used to test difference in means when we have one, two and n factor variables. A key assumption when performing these ANOVAs is that the measurements are independent. When we have repeated measures this assumption is violated, so we have to use repeated measures ANOVA. Repeated […]
