"Fortunately, experience says that high order interactions are rare"
The above sentence is horribly unscientific (it is found in the subsection "ANOVA for multiple factors"), even though a reference is given. Experience with what? Clearly no one has gained experience with all possible topics in which an ANOVA may be used. The text of the reference is not easily accessed, so it is not possible to check under what conditions this "experience" is applicable. I have marked it with a [verification needed] to signal that this claim needs to be modified. While it is relevant to the topic, the sentence as presented is false.
"It [ANOVA] is conceptually similar to multiple two-sample t-tests, but is less conservative (results in less type I error)"
I think this is either wrong, or needs some clarification. Surely if the multiple t-tests are taken at face value and no correction is applied, then it is they that are less conservative than ANOVA, and not the other way around, as they will result in more type I errors. If 'conservative' here simply means 'producing fewer type I errors', then ANOVA is more conservative than uncorrected multiple t-tests, not less. Right? L T T H U (talk) 11:30, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
