Week 4 DQ 2 due 3/17/19
Assume you want to do a project that compares the survey results before an intervention to those after an intervention in the same sample (the same people will take both surveys). You plan to use a paired t-test to analyze your results. Using the “Determining the Appropriate Sample Size,” Topic Material, perform a sample size calculation to determine how large your sample should be. Justify your sample size calculation with citations. Discuss how your sample size may affect the validity of your study.
CITI Training: Basic Research Course
The Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) training in research ethics is a requirement for submission of your practice implementation project to the Institutional Review Board (IRB). CITI training provides you with information regarding IRB requirements. During this online training, you will be required to read and process information and to take quizzes to demonstrate your understanding of research ethics and IRB requirements. You will be able to save your work at the end of each module, exit, and return later. You will complete both the Basic Research Course and the Social and Behavioral Responsible Conduct of Research Course during this topic.
