This course focuses on the methodological issues in designing an experimental study: how to obtain an appropriate sample size and how to perform statistical analysis of data derived from randomized controlled trials.
After successful completion of this course students are expected to be able to:
- formulate a good research question;
- evaluate the validity and precision of a parallel arm post-test only, parallel arm pre-test post-test, and cross-over design;
- perform appropriate sample size calculations for different study designs;
- choose and conduct the appropriate method of data analysis of randomized controlled trials, given the study design and type of variables.
Studying knowledge clips, studying e-modules, individual assignment, and individual assignment with peer-review.
