Ashford 4: – Week 3 – Discussion 2
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
Review Chapter 7 of your course text, which reviews inferential statistics that analyze experiments of repeated measures designs. For this discussion, search the Ashford University Library and find a scholarly, peer-reviewed study on any health or health informatics topic that used a repeated measures design. Reference the study and summarize the research question, the subjects, and the variable(s) of interest. What statistical analysis was used and what were the results? Were there any statistically significant differences? What does it mean for the results to be statistically significant? What does this mean specifically for the differences assessed in this study? Cite your study using APA format as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your classmates. Consider the following questions as you respond to each classmate: What did you learn about repeated measures from the study they selected and their analysis? Could the same research question have been answered by an independent between-group design? Why or why not?
