One-Way ANOVA Step-by-Step Example

Imagine you manufacture paper bags and you want to improve the tensile strength of the bag. You suspect that changing the concentration of hardwood in the bag will change the tensile strength. You measure the tensile strength in pounds per square inch (PSI). So, you decide to test this at 5%, 10%, 15% and 20% hardwood concentration levels. These "levels" are also called "treatments."

Interpreting the Results of a One Way ANOVA Test

When you run ANOVA, you don't have to think like a statistician because QI Macros interprets the results for you. QI Macros is the only statistical software that tells you if you can Reject or Not Reject the null hypothesis and whether the Means are the same or not the same.

In the example above, QI Macros built in code compares the p-value (0.000) to the significance (0.05) and tells you to "Reject the Null Hypothesis because p<0.05 (Means are Different)."

QI Macros also draws a box plot to help you visualize the results. Compare the difference in Means (color change in the box) and the variation (height of the box and length of the whiskers).
