Design and Analysis of Experiments for an Undergraduate Research Experience

Tuesday, November 13th, 20182:00 pm – 3:00 pm ET

Presented by: Jennifer Broatch (Arizona State University)


Course Based Undergraduate Research Experiences (CUREs) are rapidly becoming a model for undergraduate science education in which interdisciplinary students enroll in a course that is focused on a research question and students themselves generate hypotheses, develop protocols, generate the data, analyze and present the outcome. Hence, the experimental design and statistical analysis of the student developed research questions is critical. This presentation will include the experimental design process activities and handouts that guide the students from a variety of backgrounds through all phases of the experiment: Pre-planning, experimental design and analysis. A discussion of the implementation of multiple CUREs will also be discussed.
