# check_design: Validates the specified design In faux: Simulation for Factorial Designs

## Description

Specify any number of within- and between-subject factors with any number of levels.

## Usage

 ``` 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15``` ```check_design( within = list(), between = list(), n = 100, mu = 0, sd = 1, r = 0, dv = list(y = "value"), id = list(id = "id"), vardesc = list(), plot = faux_options("plot"), design = NULL, fix_names = FALSE, sep = faux_options("sep") ) ```

## 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.

See `vignette("sim_design", package = "faux")` for details.

## Examples

 ``` 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10``` ```within <- list(time = c("day", "night")) between <- list(pet = c("dog", "cat")) mu <- list(dog = 10, cat = 5) vardesc <- list(time = "Time of Day", pet = "Type of Pet") check_design(within, between, mu = mu, vardesc = vardesc) between <- list(language = c("dutch", "thai"), pet = c("dog", "cat")) mu <- list(dutch_dog = 12, dutch_cat = 7, thai_dog = 8, thai_cat = 3) check_design(within, between, mu = mu) ```
