A third fractional factorial design illustrated in Table I( C) is unfamiliar to most intervention researchers in psychology. Two different examples (Block 1; Block 2) of this type of design known as the 23 -1 design (half fraction; Box, Hunter, & Hunter, 1978) are presented in the left and right halves of Part C of the table. This design provides unbiased estimates of main effects of each treatment component if we assume that all interactions are negligible. Given this assumption, the four conditions in either Block 1 or Block 2 provide unbiased estimates of the main effects of each of the three components.
These sources should be consulted to develop customized designs that permit tests of the specific effects of interest to the investigator. Many of the designs are very economical relative to the full factorial designs. For example, consider the social influences smoking prevention programs described earlier which has six components. Box et al. (1978) describe a 16 cell design (quarter fraction) that provides unbiased estimates of all main effects all and two-way interactions for six factors, each having two levels, assuming all three-way and above interactions are negligible.
