QMS Event: Power Analysis Workshop

Thursday, March 22
10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Neville Scarfe, Room 278

Ryan Ji (Ph. D. student, MERM program, UBC)
Ben Hives (M.Sc. student, School of Kinesiology)

Outline of the workshop:

Power Analysis is used to determine an adequate sample size needed to detect a given effect size for a planned study. It can also be used to determine the power, given an effect size and a sample size.
In this workshop, we will approach power analysis conceptually other than mathematically, then we will provide demonstrations via GPower for t-test (independent samples and paired samples), ANOVA, Repeated-Measures ANOVA, Mixed-Design ANOVA, and Multiple Linear Regression. Finally, we will discuss the difference between prospective power analysis and retrospective power analysis, and why the retrospective power analysis should be avoided.

We look forward to welcoming you in this interesting QMS workshop.
