3. Select weight and click Y, Response.

Figure 6.23 Comparison Circles for Four Multiple Comparison Tests 

In Figure 6.23, age group 17 is highlighted. The other control circles are colored in relation to age group 17. Notice that for the Student’s t and Hsu methods, age group 15 (the third circle from the top) is gray. This indicates that it is significantly different from age group 17. However, for the Tukey and Dunnett methods, age group 15 is red, which indicates that it is not significantly different from age group 17.
