It is a pre/post situation where wehave adjusted for baseline values (BASELINE) of the scale. Thereis an interaction between GROUP and BASELINE. People at the lowend of the scale do better in one group and at the higher end dobetter in the other (but not much of a difference in clinicalterms).I was going to present the coefficients for GROUP at varyingvalues of baseline. BASELINE however, is somewhat skewed and sowhen I calculate the coefficient for group at the mean and 1SDabove and below the mean BASELINE value we end up with a lowercoefficient that is fairly close to the minimum value. Are thereother choices? 25, 50, 75Th percentiles? Graphs instead? I don'tthink transforming BASELINE adds enough to be worth the complexityand the relationship is fairly linear as is..Quartiles sound fine to me, but the most important thing is that the values make some substantive sense. There often are some values on a scale that are especially meaningful, e.g. 12 and 16 years of education in the American educational system (high school and college degree). In that case I would use those values. Hope this helps, Maarten -------------------------- Maarten L.
