Interpreting ANOVA Summary Tables

For some students, reading and listening about ANOVA does little good. For them to learn about ANOVA, they need to actually interpret some ANOVA summary tables. Therefore, give students some ANOVA summary tables or some printouts from a computer analysis of an experiment or a journal article and let them play detective--finding out how many groups were used, how many participants there were, whether the results were significant, whether post hoc tests should be done, etc. To make the task more challenging, you could white-out selected cells from some ANOVA tables and ask students to fill in the missing values.
