TBL intervention methods
i) Participants—Description of sample , participant selection, and/or site identification; comparison group description.
nursing students enrolled in a research or statistics course. will look for differences in type of learner (adult vs traditional)
ii) Measures or Instrumentation—description of all variables, data sources such as existing data, assessments, measures/surveys, and/or interview protocols.
SAM (Earp, 2007)
SELS (Perepiczka, Chandler and Becerra, 2011)
pre and post test to collect anxiety and self-efficacy data
grades from midterm and final exam to match achievement data
institutional records to see if success in the course impacts nursing attrition rates

Team-Based learning intervention. using real world examples and data. will attach the information on the curriculum in a word document.
(2) Data collection—description of data collection procedure to examine BOTH the process of implementation and proximal outcomes of the intervention.
(3) Data analysis—description of the data analyses including specific steps to code
qualitative data and statistical analyses for quantitative data. this section should also consider how to manage the data.
