Monte Carlo methods were used to investigate the adequacy of 2 approaches to data analysis in a repeated measures design in which the number of repeated levels was large and the sample size was relatively small. The techniques examined were G. E. Box's (1954) ε-adjustment and H. Huynh and L. S. Feldt's (1976) ε-adjustment. Results show that approximate univariate approaches to repeated measures can successfully be used even when the number of Ss is smaller than the number of levels of the repeated factor.
