The difference between “univariate” and “multivariate” analyses is that a “univariate” analysis has only one dependent variable (with any number of independent variables / predictors). A “multivariate” analysis, on the other hand, has many dependent variables (again, with any number of IVs). The goal of our analysis is to look for an effect of one or more IVs on several DVs at the same time. Therefore, we’re going to use the familiar “general linear model” command in SPSS, but choose a “multivariate” analysis.
This dataset has information about whether a person is in one of several different experimental groups (“group”), and their scores on three different types of memory tests (recognition, free recall, and cued recall). The difficulty level of each memory task is also rated. We will treat the three different memory tasks as different examples of a single phenomenon (“memory”). Therefore, we will look at all three together as dependent variables in our analysis.
In a multivariate analysis. Now. In this case. It should look very similar to the dialog box that we’ve been using for the past two weeks (except that it says “multivariate” up here.A dialog box will appear. In the “fixed factor” box. you have more than one DV. . put the predictor that we’re looking at: experimental group membership. we have three different memory tests and we want to test for an effect of the IV on all three of them at once. instead). so you can select many DVs and put them into this box together. hit the “Options” button to go on.
Again. Click on the “observed power” button to get the statistical power of the multivariate tests. Hit “Continue.” and then. . this “options” dialog is very similar to the used in the univariate analyses. back in the main dialog box. hit the “Model” button to go on.
” or you can select just certain variables to be included in the model. Go back to the main dialog box. . you can use the default value of “full factorial. As usual.Here’s the “model” dialog box. and hit “OK” to run the analysis. again very similar to the one for univariate analyses.

The univariate results together do not add up to the multivariate test.one-way F-test. look at the first table of the output instead. If the multivariate test is really what you are interested in. and add a covariate to the model. . If the univariate tests are really what you’re interested in. The question here is “does the effect of experimental group membership on the three memory variables remain significant after controlling for the item difficulty of the memory tasks?” To do this test. enter “test item difficulty” as a covariate. skip the MANOVA and just do the three different univariate tests – but you will need to do a correction to your alpha level to control for inflated Type I error when doing multiple tests! MANCOVA in SPSS Now let’s go back to the main dialog box for the multivariate analysis.
(But that’s the default setting. so you don’t actually need to do anything here).” in order to get a test of the effects of each variable after controlling for the effects of the others. You do have to leave the Sums of Squares setting on “Type III.” and then in the main dialog box.Here’s what the “model” dialog looks like. . (Again. Hit “Continue. hit “OK” to run the test. you can get the same result by leaving the model on its default setting. “full factorial”).
