In this course you will learn how to find the appropriate sample size, and the power of your study. The power of your study is its ability to detect a treatment effect of a specified size, if it exists. The goal of power analysis is to balance controllable and uncontrollable factors that influence a study by treating them as a series of “What if’s.” This process of finding a balance among factors can be aided by the use of graphs to visualize a range of options in a single picture in order to find the one that strikes the optimal balance between feasible sample size and acceptable power.
