One-Way vs Two-Way ANOVA: Differences, Assumptions and Hypotheses
Article

A key statistical test in research fields including biology, economics and psychology, Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) is very useful for analyzing datasets. It allows comparisons to be made between three or more groups of data. Here, we summarize the key differences between these two tests, including the assumptions and hypotheses that must be made about each type of test.
