This program has been developed for the purpose of conducting post hoc analysis on fixed effects after an initial Analysis of Variance has been conducted and the null rejected. It has the capability to run four approaches and six procedures. This software may be used for both analysis of dispersion (utilizing Levene’s Test or Levene’s Improved Test) and central tendency.

When testing for Dispersion the Means and Variances should be calculated using the data from the Absolute Deviation from the Averages (Levene’s Test) or the Absolute Deviation from the Medians (Levene’s Improved Test). When testing for Central Tendency the Means and Variances should be calculated using the raw data.
