Which best describes the assumption of homogeneity of variance?

Homogeneity of variance is the assumption that the variances in the populatons are equal.
false
The populations are both normally distributed to the same degree.
false
The between and within population variances are approximately the same.
true
the variances in the populatons are equal.
When performing a one factor ANOVA (between subjects) it is important that each subject only provide a single value. If a subject were to provide more than one value the independence of each value would be lost and the test provided by an ANOVA not be valid.

True. When a subjects provides more than one data point the values are not independent therefore violating one of the assumptions of between-subjects ANOVA.
True
True
false
False
If the MSE and MSB are approximately the same, it is highly likely that population means are different.

False If the null hypothesis that all the population means are equal is true then both MSB and MSE estimate the same quantity.
false
True
true
False
You want to make a strong case that the different groups you have tested come from populations with different means. Your case is strongest:

When the population means differ, MSB estimates a quantity larger than does MSE. A high ratio of MSB to MSE is evidence that the population means are different.
false
MSE/MSB is high.
false
MSE/MSB = 1.
false
MSB/MSE is low.
true
MSB/MSE is high
Why can't an F ratio be below 0?

F is defined as MSB/MSE. Since both MSB and MSE are variances and negative variance is impossible, an F score can never be negative.
true
Neither MSB nor MSE can ever be a negative value.
false
MSB is never less than 1
false
MSE is never less than 1

The F distribution has a:

true
positive skew
false
no skew
false
negaative skew
The F distribution has a long tail to the right which means it has a positive skew.
An independent groups t test with 12 degrees of freedom was conducted and the value of t was 2.5. What would the F be in a one-factor ANOVA?

F equals t squared.

If the sum of squares total were 100 and the sum of squares condition were 80, what would the sum of squares error be?

20
0.001
Sum of squares total equals sum of squares condition + sum of squares error.
If the sum of squares total were 100, the sum of squares condition were 80 in an experiment with 3 groups and 8 subjects per group, what would the F ratio be?

420.005
Divide sums of squares by degrees of freedom to get mean squares. Then divide MSB by MSE to get F which equals 42.
