Question

What is interaction? Provide an example about the design of a study that involves the examination of an interaction effect

Answer #1

**Interaction:**

Interaction effect occurs when one variable depends on the value of another variable.

**Example:**

Imagine that we are conducting a taste test to determine which food condiment produces the highest enjoyment. We’ll perform a two-way ANOVA where our dependent variable is Enjoyment. Our two independent variables are Food and Condiment.

Our ANOVA model with the interaction term is:

Satisfaction = Food Condiment Food*Condiment

To keep things simple, we’ll include only two foods (ice cream and hot dogs) and two condiments (chocolate sauce and mustard) in our analysis.

If someone asks you, “Do you prefer ketchup or chocolate sauce on your food?” Undoubtedly, you will respond, “It depends on the type of food!” You cannot answer the question without knowing more information about the other variable in the interaction term.

Here enjoyment depends on the condiment

Define an interaction effect and provide at least one example.
What is one way to deal with it in a regression model?

Provide an example where a two-way ANOVA would be
appropriate. Then, describe the hypothesized interaction effect
(how does the effect of IV #1 depend on the effect of IV
#2?).

Fill in the chart below about interactions within a community.
If the interaction benefits the organism put a (+) in the box. If
the interaction harms the organism put a (-) in the box. If there
is no effect on the organism put a (O) in the box. Lastly, provide
an example of each type of interaction.

Choose a type of quasi-experimental design and make up an
example of a study that would use that design. Identify some
possible confounds in the study (particularly because it’s a
quasi-experimental design).

What is the fundamental distinction between design
capacity and effective capacity? Provide a brief example.
Distinguish between utilization and efficiency. Why is the capacity
decision important?

In practice, especially if the sample design involves
clustering, we can expect the generalized design effect to be
smaller than 1, so failing to make the adjustment could lead to
erroneous inferences, typically in which you fail to identify an
effect that is truly present.

1.Think about the mixed design idea (at least one independent
variable is independent while the other is correlated). Give me two
benefits of this design (compared to a design that has only
independently assigned independent variables or only correlated
variables).
2.You now know we consider both main effects and interactions in
factorial designs. I hope that it is apparent that we also have a
hypothesis (and null hypothesis) for each main effect as well as
the interaction. Think about a...

Why is agility important in process design? (Min 500 words and
provide an example)

What are the defining characteristics of the time series design.
Give an example of a topic that would be appropriate to study using
the interrupted time series design.

Suppose as a researcher you wish to conduct a study on the
differences in examination scores between male and female students
at DCC college. How would you design such a study in terms of data
collection and analytical technique to isolate the significant
difference if any?
