Post-hoc pairwise t-tests for ANOVA
Performs pairwise t-tests for an analysis of variance, making corrections for multiple comparisons.
- Arguments to be passed to
The intention behind this function is to allow users to use simple tools for multiple corrections (e.g., Bonferroni, Holm) as post hoc corrections in an ANOVA context, using the fitted model object (i.e., an
aov object) as the input. The reason for including this function is that Tukey / Scheffe methods for constructing simultaneous confidence intervals (as per
TukeyHSD) are not often discussed in the context of an introductory class, and the more powerful tools provided by the
multcomp package are not appropriate for students just beginning to learn statistics.
This function is currently just a wrapper function for
pairwise.t.test, and it only works for one-way ANOVA, but this may change in future versions.
This package is under development, and has been released only due to teaching constraints. Until this notice disappears from the help files, you should assume that everything in the package is subject to change. Backwards compatibility is NOT guaranteed. Functions may be deleted in future versions and new syntax may be inconsistent with earlier versions. For the moment at least, this package should be treated with extreme caution.
dataset <- data.frame( outcome = c( 1,2,3, 2,3,4, 5,6,7 ), group = factor(c( "a","a","a", "b","b","b","c","c","c")) ) # run the ANOVA and print out the ANOVA table: anova1 <- aov( outcome ~ group, data = dataset ) summary(anova1) # Currently, the following two commands are equivalent: posthocPairwiseT( anova1 ) pairwise.t.test( dataset$outcome, dataset$group )
