It is not really clear when the attenuation correction should be applied however. As will be discussed, the analysis of covariance is not biased by the presence of measurement error in the concommitant variable. Certain authors who have been most critical of the analysis of covariance with regard to that problem have based their conclusions on Monte Carlo demonstrations in which the covariate was systematically influenced by the factor being evaluated for effect (Campbell & Erlebacher, 1910). They thus erroneously attributed the biases in estimates of change to problems arising from measurement error, when in fact their poor results were due to the fact that the covariate was systematically affected by the treatments or group differences.
Given nonrandom assignment that is dependent, Dot on observed covariate scores, but on the true component only, simple change scores provide unbiased estimates of true treatment effects and ANCOVA provides biased estimates. Where "treatments" are actually intact groups measured on the same variables across multiple time periods, simple change scores (or successive differences) provide unbiased estimates of the true difference in trends and ANCOVA provides biased estimates. Thus, whether ANCOVA or simple difference scores should be used to define effects in longitudinal research is a decision that depends upon the conditions under which groups to be compared were constituted.
