```This should work (with x containing the dataframe):

> x\$Id=factor(x\$Id)
> x\$Group=factor(x\$Group)
> str(x)
'data.frame':	48 obs. of  4 variables:
\$ Id   : Factor w/ 24 levels "1","2","3","4",..: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
10 ...
\$ Group: Factor w/ 2 levels "1","2": 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 ...
\$ Task : Factor w/ 2 levels "1","2": 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 ...
\$ Score: num  0.39 0.48 0.59 0.33 0.38 0.37 0.47 0.2 0.29 0.41 ...

out.aov = aov(Score~Group*Task+Error(Id),data=x) will work as well,
but the error-term will be labelled simply as ``Within'', rather than
