ANOVAs are also called F tests because the p values from the ANOVAs are derived from theoretical F distributions. Like the t tests discussed in the previous section, ANOVA also compares population means. Unlike a t test, which compares only two means, the ANOVA compares two or more than two means. In situations where only two means are involved, the p value obtained from the ANOVA is exactly the same as that from a t test. In one-way ANOVA, only one independent variable is involved. Factorial ANOVA deals with the effects of two or more than two independent variables and their interactive effects on the dependent variable.

Most pedagogical research relies on the concept of attention to explain its effects. Another important ID, the sex of the learner, is also worthy of further consideration.
