ANCOVA Test in Excel

What is ANCOVA?

Analysis of Covariance (ANCOVA) is used to compare means of an outcome variable between two or more groups taking into account (or to correct for) variability of other variables, called covariates (CV). ANCOVA allows to compare the adjusted means of two or more independent groups.

ANCOVA looks at the influence of two or more independent variables on a dependent variable, while removing the effect of the covariate factor.
