Posted by reyjunco on October 3, 2011 in Research |

As you may recall, a while ago I posted a call to graphic artists to work with me on creating an infographic that accurately represents the results of a research paper.

Lately, I’ve spent quite a bit of time analyzing data we collected in the Fall of 2010.

I ran an analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) […]
