Analysis of Covariance for Split-Plot and Strip-Plot Design Structures

experimental design being a one-way treatment structure in a completely randomized

design structure. The levels of sex were conceptually randomly assigned to the

students within each class; thus the student is the experimental unit for levels of

sex. The student experimental design is a one-way treatment structure in a randomized complete block design structure where there are multiple students of each sex

within each class or block. The data in Table 15.18 shows that there were 8 to

13 students of each sex within each classroom. Table 15.19 contains an analysis of

variance table for this split-plot design without using any of the covariate information. The teacher error term is based on 6 degrees of freedom and the student error

term is based on 181 degrees of freedom. Thus the approximate number of degrees

of freedom associated with the denominator for the various tests from the mixed

model can be between 2 and 183, depending on the number of parameters in the

covariate part of the model. Pre-tests were given to each student to measure the

initial knowledge of mathematics and the number of years of teaching experience

for each teacher were used as possible covariates. A model with factorial effects for

the intercepts, the slopes for years of experience and the slopes for pre-test scores

is in Equation 15.8. The results of fitting Model 15.8 to the teaching method and the

PROC MIXED code to do so are in Table 15.20. There are several terms in the covariate

part of the model with coefficients that are not significantly different from zero; thus

some model building needed to be carried out. The first term deleted was

pre*method*sex as it has the largest significance level — 0.9131. The additional terms

deleted using a backward or stepwise deletion process were pre*sex, yrs*method*sex,

and yrs*method. The resulting reduced model is

(15.39)

The PROC MIXED code in Table 15.21 enables PROC MIXED to fit Model 15.39

to the teaching method data. The significance levels corresponding to pre*method

and yrs*sex are 0.0098 and 0.0494, respectively, indicating there is sufficient evidence to conclude that the slopes for years of experience are different for each sex

and the slopes for pre-test scores are different for the teaching methods. The full

rank model for the intercepts, the slopes for years of experience, and the slopes for

pre-test scores is

Scijkm = µ ik + κ i Pr e ijkm + λ k Yrsij + a ij + ε ijkm

(15.40)

The PROC MIXED code in Table 15.22 is used to fit the full rank model,

Equation 15.40. The REML estimates of the variance components and combined

estimates of the intercepts and slopes are in Table 15.22. The significance levels

corresponding to method*sex, pre*method, and yrs*sex are very small, indicating

there is sufficient evidence to conclude that all of the parameters are not equal to

zero. The adjusted means evaluated at four values of pre-test scores, 77.67 (mean

at three or more values. Figures 15.19 and 15.20 contain plots of the teaching method

by sex means in Tables 15.23 and 15.24. The female and male regression lines within

a teaching method are parallel when graphed over the levels of pre-test scores. The

regression models for the three teaching methods are parallel within each level of

sex when graphed over the years of experience. Table 15.25 contains the pairwise

comparisons of the female and male mean test scores within each level of teaching

method for the for 0, 5, 10, and 6.59 years of experience and a pre-test score of

77.67. The means of the females and the means of the males are not significantly

different (p = 0.05) for teaching method I with 6.59 and 10 years of experience and

for teaching method III with 0 years of experience. The slopes for pre-test scores

are a function of teaching method, the teaching methods need to be compared at

three or more values of pre-test scores. Tables 15.26 and 15.27 are comparisons of

the means of the three teaching methods within females and within males evaluated

at 6.59 years of experience and pre-test scores of 70, 80, 90, and 77.67. The means

of teaching method III are significantly larger than the means of teaching method I

which are larger than the means of teaching method II for all comparisons. The

above are LSD type comparisons, but other multiple comparison techniques could

be used in making this set of comparisons.

This example involves two covariates where one is measured on the whole plot

or large experimental unit and one is measured on the small experimental unit, a

combination of the examples in Sections 15.7 and 15.8. As long as the computations

are carried out using a mixed models approach, there is really no difference in the

analysis of this split-plot design than carrying out an analysis of covariance with a

15.10 EXAMPLE: COMFORT STUDY IN A STRIP-PLOT

DESIGN WITH THREE SIZES OF EXPERIMENTAL

UNITS AND THREE COVARIATES

An environmental engineer designed an experiment to evaluate the affect of three

environmental conditions on the comfort of female and male human subjects. On a

given day, one female and one male were subjected to one of the three environments

where both persons were put into an environmental chamber at the same time. On

two other days, the same two persons were subjected to the other two environmental

conditions; thus each person is subjected to all three environmental conditions on

different days. After 1 hour in the environmental chamber, each person was given

a set of questions which were used to compute a comfort score where the larger

score indicates the person is warmer and the smaller score indicates the person is

cooler (Table 15.28). Figure 15.21 is a graphical representation of the randomization

process for this experiment. The picture depicts just 3 of the 12 blocks where 1 block

consists of 3 horizontal rectangles and 2 vertical rectangles. The two vertical rectangles represent two persons and the three horizontal rectangles represent the days

on which the two persons were observed within an environmental chamber set to

one of the environmental conditions. The randomization process is to randomly

assign sex of person to the two persons within each block (conceptually at least).

Thus the person is the experimental unit for sex of person. If day is ignored, the

person design is a one-way treatment structure (2 sexes) in a randomized complete

block design structure (12 blocks). The error term for persons is computed as the
