Table 5 Multivariate Analysis of Variance, and estimates. MANOVA analysis of multivariate effects, and univariate regression estimates for significant predictors in the multivariate model. Significant MANOVA results and a non-significant effect of intervention are presented. Estimates are shown for all significant predictors for each outcome variable

From: A randomized controlled trial to examine the effect of two teaching methods on preschool children’s language and communication, executive functions, socioemotional comprehension, and early math skills
