Introduction to Power Analysis

A common consideration for social science research is how many subjects are needed for their study. Whether it's for grant applications, planning effective recruitment, or examining the findings of previous work, power analysis is a commonly used tool. This seminar, the first of a three-part series, will dive into the basics of power analysis, explaining what power is, what questions it answers, and what is needed to conduct power analysis. In addition, this seminar will give hands-on tutorials on how to run power analyses for t-tests, ANOVA, and single-predictor regression analyses using G*Power.
