Hi ElMaestro,

» the powerTOST package is excellent …


» … and I am not myself a very experienced user (yet) as I tend to rely on much less reliable code of my own making :-D

Sure. In line what Jaime once stated:

Never trust in any piece of software you haven't written yourself
(and even then you should be cautious…)

» So forgive me I am asking: I think the OP implied a partial replicate. TRR/RRT/RTR is not 3x6x3 but rather 2(trts)x3(seqs)x3(pers), …

Oops! You are absolutely right.

» » 3 way crossover, reference replicate

» … is there a reason to plug in 3x6x3 in your code?

I screwed up! Of course, not a 3-period Williams’ design. Hence,

round(100 * CVfromCI(lower = 0.9625, upper = 1.2511,
                     n = 41, design = "2x3x3"), 2)


Unbalanced 2x3x3 design. n(i)= 14/14/13 assumed.
[1] 42.97

That’s reasonably close to the 42.6% given in the PAR. Sorry for the confusion caused!

@Alyssa: Can you please check whether the expanded limits are also given in the PAR? Based on CVwR 42.6% they should be close to

round(100 * scABEL(CV = 42.6 / 100), 1)
lower upper
 73.3 136.4

I believe there is no philosophical high-road in science,
with epistemological signposts. No, we are in a jungle
and find our way by trial and error,
building our road behind us as we proceed.    Max Born
