We will walk you through one trial that has been set up on this site, so you can see how it works. At the bottom of the page, you can sign up, log in, and create your own trial.
This is the question that you're trying to answer. If you publish your trial, this will be displayed prominently on the site
Here are some examples of good titles to get you started:
- Score: these are measures that are scored with a number. For example, headache pain can be measured on a severity scale from 0 to 10.
- Binary: these are outcomes that are either present or absent. For example, you could have vomited, or not vomited.
- Count: these are variables that are counted. For example, the number of wees you have in 24 hours.
We will make a drop down menu for you to give your answer (for binary it's yes/no, for score it‟s 0-10, etc).
A number of observations you think you'll need to get statistically significant results.
Write your description of the trial here. If you publish this trial, this is the description that other users will see when they're looking at your trial and thinking about running something similar themselves.
When you click the randomise me button, you'll be randomised to one of two groups. These are the instructions for the two groups, and are the key thing that differentiates them.
Once you've created your trial, you're ready to start reporting data. You should click the Randomise Me button, which will randomly assign you to one of the arms of your trial, and display your current instructions.
Now you have your instructions you're ready to take some action...
After you've gone away and acted appropriately for the arm of the trial you're currently assigned to, come back to the site and report data.
