Specification Methods in GLZ

These options are available on the GLZ Startup Panel - Advanced tab.

Specification method. The Specification method list presents the three alternative user interfaces available in GLZ (as well as GLM, GRM, PLS, GDA, and ANOVA).

You can choose among the three different user interfaces in the Specification method list only when General custom design is selected as the Type of analysis on the GLZ Startup Panel - Advanced tab). When any other Type of analysis is selected, you must use Quick specs dialog.

Quick specs dialog. Select Quick specs dialog to display the respective Quick Specs dialog box corresponding to the current selection in the Type of analysis list. The Quick Specs - Quick tab will prompt you to select a dependent variable and categorical and/or continuous predictor variables (depending on the selection in the Type of analysis box), and construct a default model. Use the options on the Advanced tab to modify various computational details, or click the Syntax editor button in the lower-right corner of the Quick Specs dialog box to further customize the model via GLZ syntax.

Analysis Wizard. Select Analysis Wizard to display a sequence of dialog boxes that will guide you through the steps for specifying a design. At the conclusion of the sequence of dialog boxes, you can either compute the results or click the Syntax editor button in the GLZ Analysis Wizard Extended Options dialog box to further customize the model via command syntax, open an existing file with command syntax, or to save syntax in a file for future repetitive use. Note that selecting Analysis Wizard automatically moves the Type of analysis selection to General custom design on the GLZ Startup Panel - Advanced tab. The Analysis Wizard is not available with any other type of analysis.

Analysis syntax editor. Select Analysis syntax editor to specify a model via the GLZ Analysis Syntax Editor. The GLZ Analysis Syntax Editor provides various options for specifying designs and for modifying various parameters of the computational procedures. You can also open an existing text file with command syntax, or save syntax in a file for future use. Refer to the description of GLZ Syntax for addition details. Note that selecting Analysis syntax editor automatically moves the Type of analysis selection to General custom design on the GLZ Startup Panel - Advanced tab. The Analysis syntax editor is not available with any other type of analysis.
