Arguments

within

a list of the within-subject factors

between

a list of the between-subject factors

n

the number of samples required

mu

a vector giving the means of the variables

sd

the standard deviations of the variables

r

the correlations among the variables (can be a single number, full correlation matrix as a matric or vector, or a vector of the upper right triangle of the correlation matrix

dv

the name of the DV column list(y = "value")

id

the name of the ID column list(id = "id")

vardesc

a list of variable descriptions having the names of the within- and between-subject factors

plot

whether to show a plot of the design

design

a design list including within, between, n, mu, sd, r, dv, id

fix_names

deprecated

sep

separator for factor levels

Details

Specify n for each between-subject cell; mu and sd for each cell, and r for the within-subject cells for each between-subject cell.

This function returns a validated design list for use in sim_data to simulate a data table with this design, or to archive your design.
