. I'm confused how someone could answer your question without as many qualifications as assumptions you feel uncomfortable making? The question is sincere. Just trying to understand. Maybe all those choices in the software are the reality. What effect did you test? The group x time interaction? You don't say what the hypothesis was. You say you don't want to assume what you don't know about the covariance structure or variance or measurement error given the lack of pilot data, but you want to know if the RM ANOVA is more powerful than the "mixed model". Did you mean -xtmixed-, because -anova- can certainly do mixed models? You can reproduce the RM ANOVA results (except t versus z tests for contrasts) by assuming a specific correlation structure, etc. From my understanding, the split plot with sphericity assumption is a subset of what xtmixed can do. So I'm assuming you would get the same answer with the same model, using either -anova- or -xtmixed-, unless you made other assumptions that made the model different than -anova-. Austin's paper does mention ignoring a level of the hierarchy, but I doubt that is relevant in this situation which is a designed experiment. Cheers, -Dave > You are missing the point.
