In other words, if μ′ = (μ1, μ2, μ3) is the vector of true mean scores at three occasions, then we wish to test H0 : μ1 = μ2 = μ3. A graphical representation of the elements of μ (i.e., graph of μi versus i) is called a profile of the vector μ. Using this terminology, our null hypothesis represents the hypothesis of a horizontal profile. The sample profile, that is, a profile for the sample mean vector is given in Output 5.1 generated by Program ...
