Definition of Repeated measures design

Repeated measures design Definition from Science & Technology Dictionaries & Glossaries
Common Concepts in Statistics
In this design, the same experimental unit is subjected to the different treatments under consideration at different points in time. Each unit, therefore, serves as a block. If for example, two different treatments and placebo treatment are applied to the same patient sequentially, this is a repeated measures design.

Repeated measures design uses the same subjects with every branch of research, including the control. For instance, repeated measurements are collected in a longitudinal study in which change over time is assessed. Other studies compare the same measure under two or more different conditions. For instance, to test the effects of caffeine on cognitive function, a subject's math ability might be tested once after they consume caffeine and another time when they consume a placebo.
