    I made the essay really short I might have the time to get it turned in. Any thing is good right now

    Pick 2 research designs:

    Control Group Time-Series Design
    Alternating-Treatments Design

    In a 200 word essay compare and contrast the outcomes that would be derived from each design. Include a treatment of at least one scholarly article per design you choose that employs the particular design.

    Use the following questions to help guide your essay:
    •Which design would be practical for a large study?
    •Which one would be practical for a small study?
    Reference needed if you can get this done by tomorrow morning I might have a chance. thank you

    Activating schoolyards: study design of a quasi-experimental schoolyard intervention study. Academic Journal
    By: Andersen, Henriette Bondo; Pawlowski, Charlotte Skau; Scheller, Hanne Bebendorf; Troelsen, Jens; Toftager, Mette; Schipperijn, Jasper. BMC Public Health. 2015, Vol. 15 Issue 1, p1-10. 10p.

    compare and contrast the outcomes that would be derived from each design. Quasi-Experimental Designs:

    There are different quasi-experimental study designs some of these utilizing a mixed method approach that may entail the use of exploratory research that is predicated upon providing input for the developing process. The different quasi-experimental designs also may employ an evaluation of the effect of interventions by using a combination of designs to ascertain the most conducive process for evaluating and facilitating the intervention development process. The objective is to identify barriers and facilitate the necessary steps within the implementation process.

    Control-Group Time-Series Design

    This design uses periodic measurements consisting of a defined group of individuals both before and after implementation of an intervention. Therefore, the interventions are predicated upon determining through the use of time series studies the effect that treatment has had on subjects for the study.

    Alternating-Treatment Design

    A single-participant design is what alternating-treatment design is representative of, and it is characterized by rapid and random/semi random shifts between two or more conditions.

    Use the following questions to help guide your essay:
    •Which design would be practical for a large study?

    The design practical for a large study is the control-group design study.

    •Which one would be practical for a small study?

    The design appropriate for a small study is the alternating-treatment design study.
