Repeated Measures Design

An experimental design can be characterized by the way that subjects are assigned to treatment groups:

  • Repeated measures design. Experimental units are assigned to more than one treatment group. This is also known as a within-subjects design.
  • Independent groups design. Each experimental unit is assigned to one, and only one, treatment group. This is also known as a between-subjects design.
