CASE STUDY

Harvard University

Project: Word Generation Randomized Trial

My role will be to perform statistical analyses on data collected for an experimental study, and write first drafts of papers based on those analyses. To accomplish this, I will closely supervise research assistants who are responsible for cleaning and merging data sets and running initial descriptive analyses.

I have trained them, and will consult with them on a weekly basis, will review the data sets the produce, and will then use those data sets in analyses designed to answer our basic research questions about impacts, subgroup analyses, longitudinal growth on the experimental measures, interrelationships among those measures and how and if impact is mediated through other level-one or level two variables.
