If you are going to compare two groups (parents of autistic children and parents of normal control group) on a test, which has been completed by both mother of father of each child,
do you use 2 (groups – autistic vs normal/between subjects variable) x 2 (parents – mother vs fathers/ within subjects variable) ANOVA ?
OR do you use 2 (groups – autistic vs normal/between subjects variable) x 2 (parents – mother vs fathers/ between subjects variable) ANOVA?
Do you think the mother group and the father group are independent? Or do you think mother-father pairs are related and therefore the parent variable is a within subjects not a between subjects variable?
I appreciate if anyone can answer my question.
Thanks in advance
