Title: Helping All Students Properly Design and Analyze Experiments
Author(s): Jennifer Broatch*
Companies: Arizona State University
Keywords: Design of experiments; teaching tools

Course Based Undergraduate Research Experiences (CUREs) are rapidly becoming a model for undergraduate science education in which students enroll in a course that is focused on a research question and students themselves generate hypotheses, develop protocols, generate the data, and analyze the outcome. Hence, the experimental design and statistical analysis of the student developed research questions is critical. Through the NSF funded project iCURE (DUE#1606903), we created experimental design process activities and handouts that guide the students through all phases of the experiment: Pre-planning, experimental design and analysis. These activities are designed for students of all backgrounds and numerous applications. Student and Instructor feedback from ecology and forensics applications will be discussed.
