Mauchly's test of Sphericity

Description

Performs a test of sphericity on a dataframe with multiple measures, one subject per line. It assesses the significance of the null hypothesis that the covariance matrix is spherical. This test is described in \insertCitea10superb

Usage

MauchlySphericityTest(dta, cols)

Examples

# creates a small data frames with 4 subject's scores for 5 measures:
dta <- data.frame(cbind(
        col1 <- c(3., 6., 2., 2., 5.),
        col2 <- c(4., 5., 4., 4., 3.),
        col3 <- c(2., 7., 7., 8., 6.),
        col4 <- c(6., 8., 4., 6., 5.)
    ))
# performs the test (here p = 0.5824)
MauchlySphericityTest(dta)
