Calculate the sample size and power for a Micro-Randomized Trial with a continuous proximal outcome

About This Applet

This web applet calculates the minimum sample size necessary for a Micro Randomized Trial with continuous proximal outcome.

How can a behavioral scientist use this applet?

Behavioral intervention scientists can use this code to calculate the sample size for an MRT with a continuous proximal outcome.

What method does this applet implement?

This code implements a sample size formula based on a test of the null hypothesis that the proximal effect (possibly a function of time) is zero. The method includes multiple small sample adjustments.
