About This Applet
This web applet calculates the minimum sample size necessary for a SMART with an end of study binary or continuous outcome, in which the primary aim is a comparison of any two adaptive interventions starting with different interventions.
How can a behavioral scientist use this applet?
Behavioral intervention scientists can use this code to calculate the sample size for SMART with a continuous or binary end-of-study outcome.
What method does this applet implement?
This code implements sample size formulae based on a test of the null hypothesis that the difference in means (continuous outcome) or probabilities of success (binary outcome) between two adaptive interventions is zero.
