Linear hypothesis test on coefficients of repeated measures model
tbl = coeftest(rm,A,C,D)
This test is defined as
A*B*C = D,
B is the matrix of coefficients in the repeated
numeric matrices of the proper size for this multiplication.
a scalar or numeric matrix of the proper size. The default is
rm— Repeated measures model
Repeated measures model, returned as a
For properties and methods of this object, see
A— Specification representing between-subjects model
Specification representing the between-subjects model, specified as an a-by-p numeric matrix, with rank a ≤ p.
C— Specification representing within-subjects hypothesis
Specification representing the within-subjects (within time) hypotheses, specified as an r-by-c numeric matrix, with rank c ≤ r ≤ n – p.
D— Hypothesized value
Hypothesized value, specified as a scalar value or an a-by-c matrix.
tbl— Results of multivariate analysis of variance
Results of multivariate analysis of variance for the repeated

the following columns.
|Type of test statistic used|
|Value of the corresponding test statistic|
|Measure of variance explained|
|Numerator degrees of freedom for the F-statistic|

between includes the between-subject

This is simulated data.
Fit a repeated measures model, where the repeated measures y1 through y8 are the responses, and age, IQ, group, gender, and the group-gender interaction are the predictor variables. Also specify the within-subject design matrix.
rm = fitrm(between,'y1-y8 ~ Group*Gender + Age + IQ','WithinDesign',within);
Test that the coefficients of all terms in the between-subjects model are the same for the first and last repeated measurement variable.
