330.624.11 APPLIED POWER ANALYSIS FOR THE BEHAVIORAL SCIENCES
Introduces the concepts of power calculation and sample size estimation. Briefly discusses the theory behind analytic and simulation-based approaches to estimating the power or sample size needed for a proposed hypothesis test. Examines effect sizes and realistic models under which power should be calculated. Discusses effective presentation of power calculations for grant proposals, including graphs. Compares examples of popular software, including R, SAS and STATA.
Upon successfully completing this course, students will be able to:
Interpret commonly used effect sizes
Perform power calculations or sample size estimations for a proposed study
Perform simulation-based estimates of power
