Study Design Assignment (10%)
Students will work in their HW groups to complete this assignment. Each group will work on designing a study to help answer the research question. The group paper should address the following:
a. Name the study design and provide the rationale for picking the study design over the others.
b. Name the exposure and health condition as it relates to the research question
c. Describe the study design. (Think through this section as if you were planning to conduct it, make sure you list who will be the study participants (person variable), where will the study be conducted (place variable) and when and how will the study be conducted. Provide as many details as possible assuming that the reader should be able to implement your study with the information provided. Assume you have unlimited resources in terms of study personnel, time and money when designing the study.)
d. Describe the measures that will be used to study the relationship between the exposure and health condition.
e. List any one potential source of bias and one source of confounding. Make sure you provide a rationale for the potential sources of bias and confounding.
This paper should be in APA format, double spaced and not more than 2-3 pages. One member from each group will upload their group paper using the TURN-IT-LINK on BB.
