Education and Training: Analysis of Variance

Time and Location Introductory Analysis of Variance for Scientists and Engineers

Abstract This four-day introductory course is designed to cover the working fundamentals of Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) for NIST scientists and engineers. Basic concepts, graphical approaches, analyses for one-way, two-way, and higher-way designs are introduced carefully. Fixed and random effects crossed, nested, and mixed models are discussed, along with components of variance. NIST-relevant applications - interLaboratory studies, ISO/GUM interface, material/data heterogeneity, key comparisons - are used as illustrations.

The material is developed principally through emphasis on worked examples. The only prerequisites are arithmetic, algebra, and basic statistics (means, standard deviations). The course will include some self-contained tutorials on background material: normal, t, and F distributions, estimation, hypothesis testing, and relevant software (including EXCEL).

Comments on Course REGISTRATION FEE IS $150.

A set of notes will be provided for the class, and a textbook (Neter, Kuttner, Nachtsheim, and Wasserman Applied Linear Statistical Models) will be utilized.

The class size is limited to 30 students.
