I have been a bit stuck for some time on what I suspect is an embarrassingly simple problem:
I need to measure differences between groups of survey items (self-reports) that ask
a) were students encouraged to engage in various forms of learning (memorising, analysing, problem solving a la Blooms et al etc) and
b) whether they actually did engage in these different forms of learning
I’m thinking of treating it as a repeat measures (same group) t-test, even though there is no treatment or time interval as such, because the different items to be compared are within the same survey and completed at the same time.
I’d be very grateful if anyone could confirm or (politely) reject this as an acceptable approach and/or help understand why.
Thansk and cheers
