Assignment 11: Two-Factor ANOVA
Due at start of class on 26 April, 2006.
Each question is worth one half a point unless otherwise indicated.
A researcher performed an experiment on prospective memory (the ability to remember
to perform future tasks.) The experiment investigated various types of reminders (cues) to
see if each aided prospective memory. The researcher used a factorial, between-subjects design with two
independent variables (IVs). The first IV was whether the cue reminded the person when
to perform the task or not (Cue When Absent vs Cue When Present - String vs Cue When
Present - Post-It Note.) The second IV was whether the cue reminded the person what task
to perform or not (Cue What Absent vs Cue What Present.) Twelve people participated in each
condition. The number of tasks that each person remembered to
perform at the appropriate time are shown below:
