How to Perform Scheffe’s Test in Excel

- Step 1: Enter the Data. Suppose a teacher wants to know whether or not three different studying techniques lead to different exam scores among students.
- Step 2: Perform a One-Way ANOVA.
- Step 3: Perform Scheffe’s Test.

### Can you do a post hoc test in Excel?

Note: Excel does not do post hoc tests; QI Macros adds this functionality.

**Is Bonferroni or Scheffe more conservative?**

The Bonferroni and Scheffé methods are used for general tests of possible contrasts. The Bonferroni method is better when the number of contrasts being tested is about the same as the number of factor levels. The Scheffé method covers all possible contrasts, and as a result, is the most conservative of all the methods.

**What is Scheffe test used for?**

The Scheffé test is used to make unplanned comparisons, rather than pre-planned comparisons, among group means in an analysis of variance (ANOVA) experiment. The Scheffé test has the advantage of giving the experimenter the flexibility to test any comparisons that appear interesting.

## How do you conduct a Scheffe test?

Scheffe Test

- Calculate the planned comparison t-test.
- Square the t-statistic to get F (since F = t2)
- Find the critical value of F with dfB, dfW degrees of freedom for given value of α and multiply it by dfB. Thus the critical value is dfB* FINV(α, dfB, dfW).
- If F > the critical value then reject null hypothesis.

### What is the difference between Tukey and Scheffe?

In relation to the differences: – In pairwise comparisons, Tukey test is based on studentized range distribution while Scheffe is based in F distribution. – Tukey’s test is very rigorous, controlling the type I error very well, but favors the type II error.

**What is Scheffe test formula?**

f , 1 * n − k k − ; α = the f-value (from ANOVA). For this set of data, the f-value is 3.24. MSE = mean square error (from ANOVA).

**When should a Scheffe test be used?**

## How do you do a Scheffe test?

### What is the Scheffe test used for?

**Which is more conservative Tukey or Scheffe?**

Generally, Tukey and Scheffé tests are more conservative. They find it harder to see differences and generally give the same result. In relation to the differences: – In pairwise comparisons, Tukey test is based on studentized range distribution while Scheffe is based in F distribution.

**Should I use Tukey or Scheffe?**

If you only want to make pairwise comparisons, run the Tukey procedure because it will have a narrower confidence interval. If you want to compare all possible simple and complex pairs of means, run the Scheffe test as it will have a narrower confidence interval.
