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 (non-repeated measures) 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.
