Creating a Split-Plot Factorial Study

This video demonstrates how to set up a factorial protocol in ARM and enter treatment information, then views a Split-Plot trial to see how the treatments are built and randomized in a trial.
 
Note: A Split-Plot study is entered the same way as a Factorial or a Strip-Block study. The only difference is the way ARM randomizes the trial map and analyzes the data. So these instructions apply for all 3 of these study types.

0:56
In ARM, select File – New Protocol to begin the protocol creation process.
 
1:46
Select the Protocol Settings button while on the New Protocol dialog, to set the study design so that the Treatments editor is set up for the factorial design.
 
4:10
Enter treatment information by specifying the levels of each factor.
 
5:56
The Factor ID and Level Number treatment fields describe how the treatments are built in a trial.
 
7:37
In a Split-Plot trial, the main units are randomized within the replicate, and the subunits are then randomized within each main unit.
