Aligned rank tests as robust alternatives for testing interactions in multiple group repeated measures designs with heterogeneous covariances

Academic Article


  • Data simulation was used to investigate whether tests performed on aligned ranks (Beasley, 2002) could be used as robust alternatives to parametric methods for testing a split-plot interaction with non-normal data and heterogeneous covariance matrices. Results indicated the aligned rank method do not have any distinct advantage over parametric methods in this situation. Copyright © 2004 JMASM, Inc.
