Talk:Analysis of covariance
|WikiProject Statistics||(Rated Start-class, High-importance)|
A variety of mergers has been proposed. Please add to the discussion at Talk:Linear regression.
This discussion is very technical for an encyclopaedia aimed at a general audience. Although the mathematical formulae are useful, some sort of explanation of the basic concepts of ANCOVA, perhaps with a few examples would make this page considerably more useful.

The model would be much easier to understand if there was a figure similar to the one here: http://www.theanalysisfactor.com/assumptions-of-ancova/. You could then put in intercepts and slopes, etc. to identify the different parts of the equation and what they are doing. Gak (talk) 11:48, 1 March 2017 (UTC)
(ab)use of the abbreviations DV, IV and CV makes this technical article practical inscrutable. Replacing these with the full terminology is preferred.
