I am currently completing my results of my dissertation, sadly I have little or no clue about stats or SPSS and am in desperate need of help.
My dissertation experiment is on delayed onset muscle sorness,my participants performed a workout to induce DOMS and its effects were tested 24 hours, 48 and 72 hours later. the test was a vas (pain scaled) scale to which I tested 3 stretches, sitting to standing and sprinting.vertical leap was also measured 3 times to gain a mean average.
Three weeks later the test was ran again with the same participants with the intervention of an ice bath straight after the workout, the same testing was then performed after 24, 48 and 72 hours again.
Which stats test do I perfom!? A independent t test? a dependent t test? and anover. Im very very confused
