Abstract: CASANOVA is a package of programs and text files designed to provide Computer ASsisted instruction in ANalysis Of VAriance. It concentrates on teaching the computations involved in a variety of ANOVAs without confining the instructor to a particular orientation or text. Its usefulness rests on the assumption that performing ANOVA computations with the aid of the computer will contribute to understanding of the logic behind these computations. CASANOVA does the computations quickly, and provides feedback to partial solutions in order to monitor the student's performance. CASANOVA users should have had some introductory study of statistical inference, hypothesis testing and one-way ANOVA prior to using the package. The package consists of 21 BASIC-PLUS programs and 18 virtual core files containing text of instructions and help messages for users of the package. Documentation consists of a Student's Manual and an Instructor's Manual.
Restrictions: The package requires about 500 blocks of disk space for its own source and text files, and additional (variable) space for users.
Documentation on Magnetic Media.
