Step-by-step tutorial for doing ANOVA test using Factorial Design in R software

R is an open source statistics program requiring knowledge of computer programming. It can be obtained from the following sources:

  • http://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/base/ (Windows)
  • http://cran.r-project.org/bin/macosx/ (Mac)
  • http://cran.r-project.org/ (Linux)

Here, I have presented the step by step guide to do Analysis of Variance test, commonly called ANOVA, using Factorial Design in R software. Factorial design considers more than one factors and the test subjects are assigned to treatment levels of every factor combinations at random.

R software screenshot is shown below:

Step-by-step tutorial for doing ANOVA test using Randomized Block Design in R software

R is an open source statistics program requiring knowledge of computer programming. It can be obtained from the following sources:

  • http://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/base/ (Windows)
  • http://cran.r-project.org/bin/macosx/ (Mac)
  • http://cran.r-project.org/ (Linux)

Here, I have presented the step by step guide to do Analysis of Variance test, commonly called ANOVA, using randomized block design in R software. In randomized block design, only one primary factor is under consideration. Similar test subjects are placed into blocks, which are tested against all treatment levels of the primary factor at random order to eliminate possible effect of extraneous factors.

R software screenshot is shown below:
